9 comments

It has been a while since we posted our last update so we wanted to give all of you some information on how things have been going. Yuasa-san and the team have been very busy over the last several weeks and we have some good news to share:

  • The Japanese voice cast has been recorded. This known as “AR” or “afureko” in Japan which is short for “After Recording” in English
  • The final color has been completed
  • The final audio mix has been completed
  • Overall production for the film has been completed

Here is what is remaining on our list of things to do:

  • English dub in LA
  • Fan dub in LA - Stay tuned, more information about this coming soon...
  • French, Spanish subtitles
  • Film festival submissions
  • DVD/Bluray authoring
  • Reward production and distribution
  • Ship rewards (estimated delivery April 2013)

Here are some images from the final animation we thought you might enjoy.

      Loving the very creative/different art style. We don't normally have the opportunity to see this kind of stuff anymore.
