Studio Gainax Makes Anime Advertisements for Toho Bank
Both companies are headquartered in Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan
Studio Gainax has created a series of 6 half-minute animated web advertisements entitled "Mirai e no kakehashi ~ Bridge for Future" for Toho Bank, a regional bank based in Fukushima. Both Gainax and Toho Bank have their headquarters in Fukushima City, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.
The series involves Sayaka Hinata, an overly-energetic new bank employee (voiced by Sarah Emi Bridcutt), and her beleaguered boss, Mitsuya (voiced by Tomokazu Sugita). Yoshiyuki Sadamoto of Neon Genesis Evangelion fame provided the character designs.
The 1st advertisement was released on October 01, 2015. Each subsequent ad is scheduled to debut at the rate of one every 2 months, with the next ad scheduled for December 01, 2015. All of the ads will be viewable from the official collaboration web page here.
