The scheduled screening time is 90 minutes.
Yasuda serves as director/screenplay writer, and Yasuda Gensho Studio by Xenotoon, a 3D studio jointly established by Yasuda and a Tokyo-based studio Xenotoon, works on anime production.
Crowdfunding campaign for its completion will begin on Japan's largest crowdfunding site CAMPFIRE at noon on August 26 (JST) and will at 23:59 on October 31. Its goal is 10 million yen (about 73,000 USD).
