simpleshow and Monday9- a manga-inspired collaboration!

This October sees the launch of the new manga-inspired TV series: From 5 to 9 – “The monk that fell in love with me”, and we couldn’t be more excited!

The hotly anticipated new drama stars Satomi Ishikawa and Tomohisa Yamashita, in their first on-screen collaboration, and simpleshow were lucky enough to be invited to use our animation expertise to help with the launch, hence our levels of excitement…

Utilising the illustrations that were used as part of the original manga comic book series, we created some truly awesome promotional video content to act as a teaser to the new series. The video is due to be played across rail networks in Tokyo and as part of various other promotional campaigns across the country.

Feel free to check it out below, and if you happen to be in Japan on a Monday night at 9, remember to tune in.
