Original titles : a rare specie that needs to be protected!
Nowadays, a good majority of Japanese animated productions are adapted from existing properties: manga, light novels, video games, etc. An original work, an anime that is not based on an existing property, is not only extremely rare but can also offer studios and producers the opportunity to create unique and stunning content. CENCOROLL CONNECT, which just joined our catalog, certainly belongs to this exclusive club of Japanese animation’s gems.
CENCOROLL CONNECT: A truly unique project
A giant creature arrives in town, a young boy develops strange powers…That’s what’s in store in CENCOROLL CONNECT, a spectacle of a movie, full of epic Monster VS Human battles in a breathtaking, brilliantly animated world!
2009 saw the release of Atsuya Uki’s animated short, CENCOROLL, an understated masterpiece, mostly created by himself, which won public acclaim with its surprising intrigue and exceptional animation. 10 years later, the project has been renewed with CENCOROLL CONNECT: an animated feature that combines CENCOROLL and its never seen before sequel, in one spectacular must-see movie experience
