360 degree video is designed to be used with smart phone VR viewers for maximum immersion
In an unusual bit of promotional weirdness, Hozuki's Coolheadedness 2, an on-going TV anime based on the supernatural office comedy by Natsumi Eguchi about the bureacracy of Japanese Hell, has released a 360 degree VR video featuring the zashiki-warashi twins Ichiko and Niko teleporting all over a traditional Japanese-style living room.
The video is designed to be viewed using smart phone VR (such as the Carboard Viewer) for maximum immersion.
The original Hozuki's Coolheadedness manga is serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Morning seinen manga magazine, and an English language version is also digitally distributed by Kodansha Comics. Hozuki's Coolheadedness 2 is directed by Kazuhiro Yoneda and features animation by Studio Deen. Hozuki's Coolheadedness 2 is currently streaming on HIDIVE, who describe the story as follows:
Just as in this life, the afterlife needs a calm troubleshooter to deal with the bureaucratic headaches that come from keeeping things in order. Enter Hozuki: a cool and collected demon who’s badly in need of a vacation.
The 1st season of Hozuki's Coolheadedness, known as Hozuki no Reitetsu, is also available via streaming on Crunchyroll.
