According to the official blog, anime director Umetsu Yasuomi updated the information about his original anime movie project "Kiss and Cry". He has been working on this project for ten years and still been negotiating with potential sponsors. He posted three sketches of the characters drawn seven or eight years ago.

Kiss and Cry Project (Umetsu's blog)
second post

Synopsis:
It's a human drama & action anime. Serial bizarre murder cases have been terrifying the citizens but the police's investigation has run into difficulties due to the mysterious trick of the killer. Kuze, the chief warden of a private fortress prison, is also pursuing the killer secretly. One day, a junior high school girl Main gains a psychic power and gets involved in the case.

Kiss and Cry project was first announced in 2004 (if I remember correctly).

I enjoyed the Kite Liberator OVA, and it seems that this guy has been doing parts in some pretty serious (and pretty remarkable) stuff.

I think I'll check this out~ =w=

Considering he's been working on it for ten years and we are now getting more information that's got to be a good sign right? Well I enjoyed Kite and Mezzo Forte so I will be eagerly awaiting this.

His site is quite something.... that huge gif background brought me back to 2000's era internet. Now all I need is an AOL disk on my mail ¬¬

...but yeah, the visual style is not something we see around these days anymore (for the good and the bad). Considering his past works I might give it a sitting once it rolls out :)

Is it me, or does this guy always finds it difficult to find sponsors and funding for his work? Maybe he should turn it into a hentai like with Kite and Mezzo Forte? At least it would finally get made.

Ten years of work. I would feel sorry for him if nobody likes it. I'll consider the thought of watching it.

I don't know if we can say. At the very least, Umetsu's probably trying to drum up some public interest, which could help his pitch to potential sponsors. However, it's impossible to say whether his comments imply that he's closer to reaching a deal (it could easily be the other way around.....that's there's little hope of making this unless fans show excitement).

Art looks decent enough. Might give this a chance when it's actually released.

This reminds me of that Utada Hikaru's song/album that came with "Beautiful World" from Eva lol.

Hmm, the story seems a bit unusual and interesting. And as far as I can see he has done some solid work - so yeah, I might be interested.
