Japanese terrestrial broadcast and limited time Twitter campaign are in the works for Atsuya Uki's film
The year 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of Cencoroll - a short anime film written, directed, and animated by Atsuya Uki - and to celebrate the festivities a terrestrial TV broadcast on Tokyo MX and a limited-time Twitter campaign have been announced. Cencoroll will broadcast on Tokyo MX during the 24:00 time slot on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, while the Twitter campaign can be found at @cencoroll_pjt.
These new developments have sparked fan-speculation that more news about Cencoroll 2 may be on the way. Cencoroll 2 was announced as being in-production back in 2014, but so far there have been no further announcements concerning the sequel film. We'll just have to wait and see what develops.
Cencoroll was released on DVD by Aniplex of America in October of 2009, but this release is now out-of-print. Aniplex of America describes the story of Cencoroll as follows:
A huge monster shows up on the top of a building of an ordinary city, prompting the Defence Forces to go into action and causing the citizens of the city to start an uproar. Yuki, a brave-hearted and naturally inquisitive girl, happens to know a secret. Her friend Tetsu has been keeping and raising a strange creature called Cenco. Instantly becoming fascinated by Tetsu and his pet, a mysterious boy appears with control over the huge monster threatening the town. With that, an unexpected battle begins.
