The official website for the Blood-C: The Last Dark anime film began streaming a trailer on Saturday. The last episode of the “Blood-C” television anime series had revealed in September that the film will open in theaters in Japan on June 2, 2012, reports Anime News Network.
The manga creator team CLAMP developed the story and original character designs for the vampire television series and film, and Production I.G has been animating both projects. Naoyoshi Shiotani (Tokyo Marble Chocolate, key animator on Blood+ and Blood-C) is directing the film instead of the television version’s director Tsutomu Mizushima. Writers Jun’ichi Fujisaku and Nanase Ohkawa (CLAMP), animation character designer/chief animation director Kazuchika Kise, and voice cast members Nana Mizuki (Saya Kisaragi) and Kenji Nojima (Fumito Nanahara) are returning from the television series.
Niconico, the English version of the online video service Nico Nico Douga, streamed the television series outside of Japan as it aired.
The film’s story is set in Tokyo one year after the television series.
