We’re clear for launch, folks!

On Friday, Production I.G. announced that their “Tate Anime” (“Vertical Anime”) app will launch on June 5. The news comes on the heels of last week’s announcement of an indefinite delay. Production I.G. hoped to release the app in April.

The Tate Anime app’s website updated with a new promotional video for the project, which you can check out below:

The trailer previews all nine listed launch titles:

  • African Office Worker
  • Dekiru ka na
  • Genghis Khan no Jin-kun
  • Hitori Gurashi no Shōgakusei
  • Kodoku no Gourmet
  • Kuruneko
  • Lunatan: Ichi-Man Nen no Himitsu
  • My teacher, Mr. T
  • Zannen Onna Kanbu Black General-san

Hitori Gurashi no Shōgakusei

Though it wasn’t included in the trailer, Katsutoshi Murase’s Karada Sagashi (Body Search) will receive an anime adaptation some time after launch.

Tate Anime is aimed at folks who want to watch anime, but lack either the time or a TV to do so. The app will update with new content every weekday, all of which is vertically oriented and optimized for smartphones. Each series featured will run for ten episodes, which run for about three minutes each.
