After theatrical run through Eleven Arts, anime will be available soon through select digital outlets and on bilingual Blu-ray & DVD
Sentai Filmworks has announced that they have licensed, Short Peace, the anime anthology curated by the legendary Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira, Steamboy) which includes the 86th Academy Award nominated Best Animated Short Film "Possessions," directed by Shuhei Morita (Coicent, Freedom).
Short Peace will have a nationwide theatrical release via Eleven Arts. It will also be available soon through select digital outlets and on bilingual Blu-ray & DVD.
Meanwhile, Bandai Namco Europe has posted a look at the Otomo directed segment, "Combustible."
SHORT PEACE: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day will offer to the players a cross-platform experience: four Animated Short Movies and a crazy fast-paced game! COMBUSTIBLE - the second movie is directed by Katsuhiro Otomo (the creator of Steamboy & Akira) - takes place in the city of Edo in the 18th century. Where Owaka, a merchant's daughter, and her childhood sweetheart Matsukichi, find their differing social standings render their love impossible. In her mad desperation, Owaka does something that engulfs the entire city in a deadly inferno...
Along with the movies, Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day will be coming out. The game directed by Suda51 will be following the life of Ranko Tsukigime, a slightly arrogant high school girl living alone, who becomes a deadly hitman at night to coldly assassinate her targets. Everything gets turned upside down when a demonic enemy organisation starts threatening the lives of Ranko and her friends...
SHORT PEACE: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is scheduled to launch in Europe and Australasia in spring 2014 for the PlayStation®3 system
