Kyoto Animation Makes New TV Commercial

The animation studio Kyoto Animation announced earlier this week that it animated a 30-second "Ajisai-hen" (Hydrangea Ad) commercial. Shoko Ikeda (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, K-ON!!) was the storyboarder, character designer, director, and animation director for the commercial, and it stars 12-year-old actress Akari Kudou (Pénélope tête en l'air).

The commercial is about four sisters, and Ikeda noted that she created the commercial with the themes of "fun," "dreams" and "energetic" in mind. According to Ikeda, the protagonist in the commercial has the power to create anything she dreams.

The studio previously aired two other commercials last June and July. The "Ajisai-hen" commercial is now airing in Japan.
