Have you ever heard of Ishida Hiroyasu or Studio Colorido? In all likelihood, probably not. They are both incredibly new to the anime industry. Ishida Hiroyasu is 25 years old and recently graduated, and Studio Colorido is a mere 2 years and 2 months old.
Well, I can tell you now that you have probably seen Ishida’s work. Have you ever seen a short animated film in which a girl confesses to a boy, is rejected, and then has an entertaining (and impressively well made) run down the hill? Well, even you have not, over 2 million other people have.
Four years later, Ishida Hiroyasu is about three weeks away from making his big directorial debut — and people are going in fast. In fact, the premeire for the movie has sold out already. Back in September, Studio Colorido released the preview for the film:
It will certainly be interested to watch. According to MyAnimeList.net, here is the synopsis for Hinata no aoshigure:
Hinata is very good at drawing and falls in love with his classmate, Shigure; however, Hinata is not good at talking to people, so he keeps his feelings in his imagination and drawings. Then, Shigure’s family decides to move to another town. On the day of their move, Hinata says to himself, “I must tell her my feelings!” and starts to chase after the train which is taking Shigure away.
Will I watch it? Most definitely. While I am not too fond of these types of stories, I think the visuals will make up for it.
Hinata no Aoshigure premeires November 9th. Incidentally, that is when Sakasama no Patema premeires…
