The Film will premier in March 18.

The Official website for the Movie “Ancien and the Magic Tablet” has announced that an Aime spinoff is in the works, and it is called: “Ancien and the Magic Tablet ~Another Napping Princess~”

The Director of the film, Kenji Kamiyama, is directing the anime.

The SHort anime´s story is described as follows:

“The story will center on the adventure of Ancien, a girl that keeps appearing in Kokone’s dreams. The story of the dream is one that Kokone’s father told her as a mysterious fairy tale when she was little. The short expands on the story from the film.” 

While the film´s story is this:

“This fender and genre-bending film takes us into the not-too-distant machine-driven future. Kokone should be diligently studying for her university entrance exams, but she just can’t seem to stay awake. Aside from stealing precious study time, her napping is even more distracting, as it brings on strange dreams with warring machines that hint at family secrets that have been dormant for years. She can’t ask her father, a hipster mechanic more talented and artful than his job requires, as he’s always busy modifying motorcycles and cars in flights of fancy. What are these visions that lead Kokone at once closer to and farther away from her family? Like all the best anime, the film revels in multilayered fantasy to show how sometimes opposites—waking and dreaming, the past and the future—are far more intertwined than they appear.”
