009 RE:CYBORG is the upcoming movie in the Cyborg 009 series. The story takes place after the events of the Cyborg 009 manga amidst a spree of worldwide bombings of skyscrapers in major cities. Written and directed by Kamiyama Kenji [神山健治] (Ghost in the Shell S.A.C, Eden of the East), the movie is being produced by Production I.G [プロダクションIG].

The film is made with 3D cel shaded to look like traditional 2D animation. 009 RE:CYBORG is set to begin screening simultaneously in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Korea on October 27, 2012.

The chair is called Dive Gear and is used by the heroine in the movie.

Just about everybody from the anime and game industry is here! I managed to bump into comrades at Google, Ascii Media Works and Good Smile Company.

Only 1 screen was planned but because so many people showed up, they quickly setup another screen - a total of two screens for industry folks. This screen slowly filling up - took this snap but didnt realize that Takashi Okazaki is smiling at the camera ^^;

8104730597_967fe6db95_o

Tis my first time here. They got a load of Japanese movies on including anime such as Madoka, Tiger Bunny and more. Do they show Japanese anime movies in the cinema where you are?

8104744444_a63f099d1e_o

Bumped into blogger Fumi-san who now works at Google - I met her when I first appeared on a Japanese TV show called Blog TV. Little did I know that a few years later I would produce and direct my own TV show in that same studio...

8104744820_6327cf81e1_o

Also bumped into Fukuoka Toshihiro - we worked together to bring Hatsune Miku to the US and are now working to bring her to...

The movie is visually a joy to watch which comes complete with an intriguing story - dont go to the toilet during the show or you may loose track of whats going on! Director Kamiyama has done a fab job and fans of his previous works such as Ghost in the Shell SAC and Eden of the East will love this flick.

Will give you details of its overseas broadcast soon but you can also keep an eye on the official English site, the 009 English Facebook or the 009 English Twitter account.

If you do get to watch the movie then watch right up until the end of the credits - you will see me in there somewhere ^^;
