March 1 Premiere: Anime Shorts Series by Science Saru, MBS
TV network MBS is joining forces with anime production company Science SARU to create a series of four short anime, each lasting 90 seconds. These mini-anime will be broadcast on MBS as well as on TBS as part of the “Science SARU x MBS Original Short Anime Daisakusen!” initiative. Starting on March 1, the shorts will be shown in the “Super Animeism Oshiri” programming slot, with a new episode being released every Friday.
Science SARU in conjunction with MBS have showcased screenshots from three out of the four projects.
Four distinct directors will be at the helm for the four shorts: Akitoshi Yokoyama (involved in Cutie Honey Universe, Irina: The Vampire Cosmonaut), Eri Kinoshita (animation director for Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, Flash animator for Ride Your Wave), Eunyoung Choi (director for Star Wars: Visions short “Akakiri,” producer for Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!), and Asami Murakoshi (who directed the animation for The Heike Story, and was a key animator for Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!).
