The final chapter of the three-part anime Ajin –Shougeki- has been released on September 23 (Fri) and the second season of the TV anime series will start broadcast on October 7.
Many famous people of the anime industry saw the movie and offered their comments:
Novelist Tou Ubukata (Tenchi Meisatsu, Mardock Scramble)
‘The attractions of the movie are its situations that changes again and again, and the main characters dramas. His skill in turning the difficult theme “undead” into entertainment is something extraordinary.
Battles with undead bodies, brain battles and battles between ghosts; the movie combines all three of them neatly.’
Shiotani Naoyoshi Animation Director (PSYCHO-PASS series director)
‘What are they pursuing after all those battles and where will they arrive? This is the base theme of the series and the movie also features this aspect very much.
When madness of humanity engulfs the world, each makes their own decision and face the last battle to survive… I can’t say anything other than just “it’s cool!”. Please visit the theater to watch the movie!!’
Tatsuyuki Nagai Animation Director (Anohi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai, Kokoro ga Sakebitagatterunda)
‘I feel that I’ve been shown the difference in approach between 2D original manga and 3D movie. The cool, stylish action and world view that take advantage of the 3D’s characteristics.
It was filled with allures of 3D which are neither like live action movie nor 2D animation. As a fan of the original manga, I think the movie is one of the complete form of Ajin animation!
By the way, Sato is really cool…’
Square Enix Takeshi Nozue (King’s Grave Final Fantasy XV)
‘I watched Ajin –Shougeki-. As its title indicated, the movie was speedy and with a sense of urgency drawing me into the movie, even though I haven’t seen the 2nd chapter. The hybrid expression that intricately fuses CG and animation stimulated my eyes and brain and made me attracted to unique characters of Nagai and Sato. It was completely a new work of entertainment! If you haven’t seen the movie yet, then I recommend that you do!’
