They had me at ‘theme song by fripside’!
Set to be released to theaters in Japan on October 5, the upcoming anime movie BlackFox from studio 3Hz posted a video to YouTube revealing the first seven minutes.
Kazuya Nomura (Ghost In The Shell: The New Movie, Robotics;Notes) was tapped to direct the project at Studio 3Hz, with Atsushi Saito providing character designs. Naoki Hayashi (Citrus) is in charge of scripts for the title. Infinite is listed as producing the title.
The confirmed voice cast includes:
- Rikka Isurugi: Ayaka Nanase
- Mia: Haruka Tomatsu
- Melissa: Yō Taichi
The official Black Fox website describes the show as:
Living in a ninja residence tucked away in a corner of a futuristic city is Rikka, the eldest daughter of a Ninja clan, who looks up to her father—a researcher—very much.
Carrying on with her life normally, Rikka’s home came suddenly under attack one day. Driven into a corner, what would she do to overcome this crisis?
Rip darkness to pieces and become “BLACK”!
The theme song will be performed by fripside and a special video with comments from the band was posted along with the above preview.
