Summertime in Japan marks the release of the year’s most prestigious anime. Ghibli-baby Studio Ponoc chose last July for the debut of its first anime, Mary and the Witch’s Flower… and now they’re back.
Ponoc has announced that it’ll be back in theaters this summer with its second animated feature, Little Heroes -Kani, Tamago, and the Invisible Man-.
Wondering, “Why the long title…”? WELL, it’s actually an anthology film consisting of three parts, each with a different director.
Hiromasa Yonebayashi, director of both Mary and Marnie, is helming the fantasy adventure “Kanini and Kanino,” which will be his first time directing a story he created himself, as opposed to an adaptation of a preexisting novel.
