The official website of Kagerou Project has announced that there will be a short anime movie to be released in the winter months of 2016. The movie will be a collaboration between ultracreep Inc. and Aniplex as the first MX4D™ (Motion Effects 4D) short movie production in Japan, where viewers can feel the motions and sense jolts while watching. It will be titled MX4D Kagerou Days -in a days- and will be directed by the illustrator and character designer of the manga, Sidu. The movie will be produced by 1ST PLACE/JUMONJI.

Kagerou Project is a mixed-media project based on a series of songs created by Jin. An anime adaptation for the project, Mekakucity Actors, aired in Spring 2014 with 12 episodes. A manga adaptation, Kagerou Daze, began publishing in June 2012.

Synopsis
Shintarou Kisaragi—a NEET who shut himself inside his room for two years—had been living his life normally until he met a cyber girl named Ene, who appeared in his computer screen when someone anonymously sent him a mysterious e-mail one year ago. One day, Ene messes with Shintarou's PC, which forces him to go to the outside world for first time in two years. (Source: MU, edited)

So is this what Jin was talking about on Twitter? He said he was going to compose a new song... Is that song going to be part of this?

They could mean it as November/December. Winter starts in Japan by those months.

After how Mekakucity Actors turned out to be, I'm not sure how I feel about this news. It's pretty cool, yeah, but I'm not exactly excited for it.

Still, I'll watch it

Don't confuse the Winter 2016 TV broadcasting season with "the winter of 2016", which implies the end of the year 2016. Seasonal anime is a TV concept and doesn't apply to other release methods. (We list them on the Seasonal page for convenience, but note that "season" information is absent from DB entries which are not the TV type.)

I'll tweak the wording to make it a bit clearer.

Kagerou Project's songs and LNs have had some a prominent impact on my life and I hold them so close that I can't help but get a little excited about something like this even though I probably won't experience it.

I just really hope it doesn't end up being comparable to Mekakucity Actors. The anime adaptation of the series had to be the most disappointed I'd ever been in something. The only silver lining are the beautiful song covers that came of it.

It is not mentioned if it will be a cg movie if I am not mistaken.And the studio is not going to be Shaft, but Aniplex.

that was jin, not the manga author. the main reason it turned out as bad as it did was that there wasnt enough time to go to the full length of the story. this is different.

How will this be any different? There will be even LESS time to tell the story. After butchering of the franchise in the anime, they are coming back to kick the corpse.

from the looks of it, they're probably only adapting a small portion of the story.
could be the dark route they didnt adapt in the beginning.

First, this isn't being made by SHAFT. The article mentions Aniplex so expect A-1 Pictures.

Second, SHAFT never produced any type of CG on Mekakucity Actors, this is the actual scene made by SHAFT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHhF31jXtyI. This famous CG scene circling around was outsourced because SHAFT is irresponsible as fuck and never does shit on time (usually fixing it on the BDs) and ends up relying on other shit companies to do their job, poorly.

You still need substantial backstory to immerse people in the atmosphere and not just Outer Science prolonger 5 times, which is likely going to happen due to such a small amount of runtime.

Aniplex is a producer and they also produced Mekakucity Actors anime so could be any studio really.

The CG is still Shaft fault because they obviously didn't have the time so they outsourced they are also in charge of the production of the series so people can blame them on anything.

I'm not saying Shaft has no blame on what happened in Makakucity Actors, it was their fault for not planning things correctly, but in this specific case, we're talking about a movie budget with a much wider time of production, in which, even if SHAFT does get the job (I'm 90% sure Aniplex will put it on either A-1 because A-1 accepts anything or any other company, SHAFT failed at the job before after all and they're on a tight schedule with Monogatari, Sangatsu no Lion, fate/EXTRA and god knows what more), they won't repeat the terrible CG simply because it wasn't theirs (and also because lmao it looked horrible).

For those who have gripes with the CG, here's how the same scene looks on BD where Shaft actually does sakuga.



Let's pretend the cancerous CG doesn't exist.

I'm also worried about this
4D is usually the wonderful thing you find with the in-motion chairs at amusement parks
Cool concept for Kagepro
But will we be able to see/watch it?

I'm a fan of KagePro but the TV anime was all over the place and the CG was just bad. I know they fixed that in the blu-ray, but still. I just hope this won't be anything like that.
