To say that "it took them long enough" would be a euphemism... The official website
for the Gothicmade
anime project first came online almost 6 years ago. And now, at last, it brings an update that reveals the movie's premire date - also announced at this past weekend's Anime Contents Expo - as being set for November 1, 2012.
Prior to this, the project's latest release timeframe had been intended for this spring. For those still unfamiliar with it, this mecha anime film - fully titled Gothicmade: Hana no Utame - is produced by Automatic Flowers Studio, and directed by the manga and anime creator Mamoru Nagano (Five Star Stories). He is said to have also conceived, wrote, storyboarded, and animated it, which would explain the movie's lengthy production.
Various Gothicmade trailers
have been released over the past couple of years, with only a very short one last year... So it would be about time we got a fresh look at it. If there was any new footage shown at ACE, let's hope it makes its way online soon.
