From the official Facebook page (edited):
"Double Circle" is an original web anime by Toshiba which has the theme of the smart community in Kawasaki city, Kanagawa Prefecture. This is a series of online animated short movies where the citizens of Kawasaki transform into heroes who battle and overcome the enemy; the evolving smart community and renewable energy versus a world where time stands still/a world that is without color. In cooperation with Kawasaki City, through these animated shorts, we send the action of Toshiba and Kawasaki City.
More details about the project:
Toshiba and Kawasaki City signed an agreement of cooperation to realize a smart community in October 10, 2013. Going forward, they are going to work together for developing Building and Energy Management System (BEMS) and enlivening shopping streets in the station district with ICT which Toshiba provides.
Toshiba will open Smart Community Center on the west side of Japan Railway's Kawasaki Station on October 31, 2013. With this building as the anchor, Toshiba will contribute to smart community demonstrations that Kawasaki City is promoting in the station district.
