The Kamikaze Douga (JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure openings) studio began streaming its 2009 original short anime short Amanatsu last week. Toshihisa Yokoshima directed the short.
The project title comes from the name of a robot that a scientist creates in this near-future science-fiction story. The scientist, Sōichi Makimura, also developed the Amon perpetual motion machine that sustains the energy dome under which humans live their daily lives, 20 years after the last of the energy wars and environmental disasters had devastated the land. Makimura’s 14-year-old daughter, Amane, has lived with Amanatsu since she was little.
The studio showcased Amanatsu at Tokyo International Anime Fair 2009. The short was subsequently screened at other film festivals including Annecy.
A different version of the short, set to the “River’s Edge” song by the Japanese musical duo Nichika, debuted on the Japanese iTunes Store in 2009.
Yokoshima and Kamikaze Douga are currently working on the original anime project Gasoline Mask.
