Hiragana Danshi is one of the projects that started from a monthly variety show on Nihon TV titled "Ichara," which gets ideas for 2D characters from the audience. The project eventually received a smartphone game titled Itsura no Koe, which launched in October of last year, but was recently announced to end service in April of this year.

Key visual looks good. Not clear if they are using MMD parts for the movie. I prefer not.
PV is by someone who creates MMD videos. I found their page here.

Studio DIRECTIONS' are the guys who did that one awful CGI OP for Meikaku City Actors, so don't get your hopes up that the movie will be looking any better. Shame about Horgiuchi tho.

Eh I think the CGI looks weird. Not bad but just weird overall. Now as for the staff I don't think its that bad but I honestly believe that Seiji can pull it off. I hate Expelled from Paradise but he did a good job choreography wise in itself... even if I wasn't pleased by it overall.

The PV looks like one of those fanmade CGI vids :<

If I’m not wrong, all the characters in that picture are guys and gays.

Man, Seiji Mizushima sure is falling pretty hard these days.

Feb 21, 10:17 PM by DatRandomDude

Judging from the title, which has Jo (meaning "beginning"), I think there will be more parts?
