A new animated film titled Taifuu no Noruda (Typhoon Noruda) was announced by Studio Colorido during the premiere of TV series Punchline. The film is set to debut in Japan on June 5 and will remain in theaters for a limited three weeks.
Taifuu no Noruda is the studio's first feature-length film since their formation in 2011. Their previous works include a number of short ONA anime, along with two short films released in November 2013, titled Shashinkan and Hinata no Aoshigure.
The film takes place on a certain isolated island, at a certain middle school, and on the eve of the culture festival. A boy quits baseball after playing his whole life and has a fight with his best friend. Then, they suddenly meet a mysterious, red-eyed girl named Noruda, and a huge typhoon hits the middle school.

Sounds like another boring melodrama about natural disasters. The director also did a rather forgettable short called Control Bear a year or two back, but maybe he'll work better with a full-length title?
Ohh the people behind the shorts Control Bear and Poulette no Isu, and one of them also worked on Rain Town. I like their style, the pastel colors and it's cute. All of these shorts are quite imaginative. I've also had Hinata no Aoshigure in my PTW for awhile now. Looking forward to the movie!
