Long-anticipated sequel to Atsuya Uki's original animated short film hits Japanese theaters on June 29, 2019
Recently announced and some ten years in the making, CENCOROLL CONNECT - an upcoming theatrical anime film that combines Cencoroll and the previously unpublished sequel Cencoroll 2 into a single movie - now has a new preview video that's full of monster-bashing action, awkward adolescent encounters, and bass-dropping beats.
The original Cencoroll short film 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.
CENCOROLL CONNECT is written, directed, and animated by Atsuya Uki and features music by ryo (supercell) and distribution by Aniplex. The film hits theaters in Japan on June 29, 2019.
