Atsushi Nishigori returns from The Idol Master anime to direct the concept film
When news broke that Atsushi Nishigori was returning to the [email protected] franchise to direct a new "concept film" alongside The Idol Master TV anime production team at Cloverworks and his buddies over at Studio Khara (Evangelion 3.0+1.0), this writer doesn't think they were prepared for this.
Working alongside Nishigori is fellow Khara staffer Shogo Tsurii known for his 3D work on Evangelion 3.0+1.0 and working in the film's previous production – which translated over to the music video in a wonderful way.
The music video, which uses the song "[email protected]" from THE [email protected] FIVE STARS!!!!!, a group containing idols from the past 15 years of the franchise, was made to push past the 15th-anniversary of The [email protected] series and look to the future.
