“I can sense the dramatic transition happens in the entertainment world again.  I have so many new ideas flowing in by this experiment with such a dense space visual expression which I craved for a long time.  I wish many of you can experience this 360-degree world which I cannot explain in words unless you are actually in it.”

Shoji Kawamori, Animation Director, Mecha Designer

“This movie is created with the cooperation of the videogame developer, Historia, as well as the great synergetic effect from the experiences and know-hows of the videogame developing and animation production brought up together.  I strongly feel that we could still make new things a reality by the technology collaboration.”

Tomisaburo Hashimoto, Department head of Computer Graphics, CG Producer
