In a world filled with anime, an accident ignites an epic chain reaction that rewards Hime with an XBOX game pass of her own. We absolutely loved working with Crunchyroll to use an exciting anime style to tell the story of Hime’s unexpected trip to the city.
Japan’s cityscapes are unique and gorgeous, featuring a vast ecosystem of illustrated ads. Just one city block is a visual explosion. Using other works featuring Hime, we sought to match the style of her world and build a cityscape, dense with illustrated signs and lights that felt unique to the high energy of Crunchroll. We created an aquarium, traditional temple parks and gardens, and an entertainment district where the main action heats up.
We built out our own model sheet that was accurate to Hime’s design. We worked with Crunchyroll to be 100 percent faithful to her iconic design. Digital compositing allowed multiple character passes of hand-drawn and 3D techniques to build out each scene.
