The official Youtube channel of music label company Pony Canyon has just revealed a behind-the-scenes video for the making of the animated film adaptation of popular mobile game DEEMO. The video—thankfully, with English subtitles!—features the Production I.G. CEO Mitsuhisa Ishikawa and the film’s executive director, Jun’ichi Fujisaku. Check out the video here!
It was announced during Rayark Games’ panel at the Anime NYC last 2019 that Deemo will be receiving an anime film adaptation. The anime film will be produced by Signal.MD and Production I.G., with Jun’ichi Fujisaku as executive director, Shuhei Matsushita as director, and Yoshihiro Himane as assistant director. Script will be written by executive director Fujisaku along with Bun’o Fujisawa. Character design will be done by Mebachi.
The movie’s still-untitled theme song will be sung by 14-year old middle school student Hinano Takashima, who bested 1,400 other contestants in the DEEMO THE MOVIE – Utahime Audition Final round of contests.
The original Deemo debuted last 2013 on iOS and Android devices. Rayark Games later released the game in Japan for the Playstation Vita in 2015 under the title Deemo: Last Recital. The game eventually got a North American and European release for the PS Vita as well last 2017, under PM Studios and Rising Star Games. In September of the same year, Deemo also received a Nintendo Switch release. A sequel game, Deemo II, was announced last December 2019.
Developer Rayark Games describes the original Deemo as such:
“A girl who fell from the skies and lost her past
Deemo who plays the piano all alone in the world of the treehouse
an accidental encounter between the two.
The music flows as the fingers hit the piano keys.
The start of a fairytale journey has begun…
‘Before turning to leave, don’t forget to say one last goodbye.”
Deemo II’s story, on the other hand, is described as such:
“When music plays, the sun shall stay."
A girl with flowers growing on her head and an incredible white being with a human form── Deemo. As a melody issues forth from the center of the train station, the rain gradually stops, and the sky clears up once again.
In the endless pouring rain, the two of them search the fantasy kingdom for a hope that will save the world.”
