We will be able to see Pompo and Gene’s enthusiastic movie-making in anime form.
MANGA.TOKYO will be back with all the latest info.
Pompo is a competent movie producer. She sees through actors’ and staff’s potential and utilizes it to the best of their ability. She is a heaven-sent child for the silver screen. She works day and night in movie city, Nyoliwood, but why is she only making B-level action movies overloaded with sex appeal…? A young assistant known as the ‘movie bug’ called Gene questions this and is one day handed a script worked on by Pompo. He was told ‘I am going to have you film this movie’ and was suddenly made the director. Can Gene create the story that Pompo wants to tell?
