The 2D animation is “Concrete Revolutio ~ superman fantasy ~”, the flash animation is “Eagle Talon”, while “Ajin” is being presented in the CG animation.
In the “Ajin” corner, along with the production of the full CG animation process, there is also a variety of materials each with their own commentary. This corner is also completed with full experience and interviews.
It contains more than 50 sheets of planning data, scenarios, scripts as well as setting materials. Furthermore, there are also detailed descriptions on the digital animation production processes such as motion capture and modelling. General director Hiroyuki Seshita states that due to a supervised interview of Hiroaki Ando being screened, it will definitely be a worthwhile event, especially for “Ajin” fans.
Starting from the 17th of May, there will be a commemoration for the screening of “Ajin – Collision” in addition to the special limited time exhibition. 13 of “Ajin – Collision” unpublished character designs, 8 art setting images including many valuable character goods will be displayed until June 19th.
Also starting from May 26th, an additional exhibition based on the character model “Izumi Shimomura” will be held, which will include a new 3-D printed figure. The new figure was used in the actual anime work production. It is due to the characters of “Ajin” being formed by 3-D CG animation that the beauty of the 3-D figures can be appreciated as it is.
