Animator and illustrator loundraw announced on Friday that he is producing a short theatrical anime film for the multimedia project Project Common. He will announce details of the project in the future.
Project Common's theme is "to express the true loundraw." The illustrator said, "Unchanging at any time, I want to find my steadfast self. This project is a challenge to find the true 'loundraw' with myself and everyone." The project's website includes the English text "real or fake? The way he thinks, the way he draws. These all become 'one.'"
Illustrators and creators from loundraw's Flat Studio, including novelist Tetsuya Sano, are contributing to the project. Reoen, Merrill Macnaut, Tomotaka Wakumoto, asano66, and banishment from the story production team KotsuKotsu are participating.
loundraw drew the original character designs for the Tsuki ga Kirei television anime series, and also provided the original character designs and cover illustration for Yoru Sumino's I Want to Eat Your Pancreas novel. The novel has inspired an anime film using his original character designs.
He also drew the character designs for an animated promotional video based on Yusuke Yamada's Boku wa Robot Goshi no Kimi ni Koi wo Suru (I fall in love with you through a robot) novel. The novel is also getting a full animated film adaptation.
