That is right everyone. The studio behind recent work such as Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, Erased, and Occultic;Nine are going to be teaming up with Porter Robinson. In an announcement made on Porter Robinson’s facebook page (see below), came the news that the two will be teaming up for an animation. This animation will tie in with Porter Robinson and Madeon’s recent tour called “Shelter.” The animation will be debuting on October 18th, so get hyped people!
This is incredibly exciting as Porter Robinson is notorious for utilizing animated visuals and various Japan inspired themes. So it comes as no surprise, but that just means that everyone will get to experience an incredible journey to accompany the musician’s work.
If it is anything reminiscent of Daft Punk’s Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5ystem then we are in for one hell of a ride. It is not clear if it is just a short animation to go with the song “Shelter” or something longer. I’m sure it will be spectacular no matter what.
Since the original posting, Porter has since posted an additional screenshot and a description of the story. The title of the animation is ‘shelter the animation’ (not terribly creative, but who cares at this point).
Porter describes the animation as:
‘shelter the animation’ tells the story of a girl living alone for all eternity in a simulation built by her father to save her from the end of the world.
