Gainax Fukushima produces a 15-second anime CM for the 450th anniversary project of Megohime, who was born in 1568 and the wife of 17th-century warlord Masamune Date. The project was launched to promote her birthplace, Miharu-cho in Fukushima Prefecture, where the studio and its museum have been located since March 2015.
The anime version character was co-designed by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Evangelion, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) and Mari Araki ("Manga*Anime*Games from Japan" exhibition poster). Watch the clip narrated by popular anime voice actress Nao Toyama (Rin Shima in Laid-Back Camp) below.
