Academic support company Z-Kai posted illustrator loundraw‘s Futari-bun no Shōmei (“A Proof for Two”) anime short on Friday. The company describes it as a “concept movie” to encourage entrance exam takers.
Along with designing the characters, loundraw is directing, writing, storyboarding, animating, and managing the color script. Flat Studio, the studio loundraw established in 2019, is animating. Internationally renowned pianist Akira Kosemura, who worked on the soundtrack of loundraw‘s directorial debut Summer Ghost, is composing the theme song “Ahead of Us.”
The story follows three friends grappling with school, studies, and relationships. Kouki Uchiyama will play Takuya Amano, a boy who will move to Hokkaido after finishing middle school. Yui Ishikawa plays Haruka Kishi, Takuya’s childhood friend.
