The designs aren't something that fares well with my taste. But I'm really digging this ultra sparkly tone they're going for, and it seems they won't be cheap on the animation either.

The synopsis looks like something in need of a good script, since probably the dialogues are going to make or break the story. Are the novels good in that regard?

They live in Super P.A Works Land where there's a constant stream of cherry blossoms, everything is clean and pristine, everyones super cheerful going to school for the day and there's a constant full bloom rainbow effect reflecting off everything. It makes their last major movie Colorful look..well.....less colorful by comparison.

Man, it brings back memories from the time when making signatures was popular.

I'm a little confused, the Anime News Network article on this from June 1st describes it as:

Quote:
The story is set in Abeno 6th Middle School, a prep school attended by the main character Kōji Seki. The school puts a high emphasis on studying, but the resulting stress leads to unruly students. Michiru Takamizawa is elected the student council president, and she begins ruling over the school with a brutal iron fist. Kōji rises up against Michiru, and Kazumi Kusumoto joins him in the battle with the student council.
But then the most recent article says the synopsis is:

Quote:
Spring marks the start of another new school year at a junior high school in Kamakura. A new transfer student, Ryoichi Kyogoku (Daisuke Ono) joins the 8th grade. Kyogoku has a very special proficiency in telepathy and has been ordered by his father to use this ability to scan other people's minds and take over the school.

He instantly gains popularity at school from his good looks and charisma and he sets about taking control of the school. As people begin to fall under Kyogoku's spell, he covertly manipulates his followers and pushes aside anyone who gets in his way.

With the school almost completely under the control of Kyogoku, only one boy seems unaffected – Seki. Does Seki have what it takes to save everyone from the clutches of mind control?
The most recent article mentions the anime is a "new interpretation" of the novel, so maybe the June summary was of the light novel's plot, and the more recent one is the summary of the anime's plot, with the anime taking it a little different direction? I'm impressed by the trailer regardless, makes me want to hop on a plane to find a theater showing it...

This is correct. The anime is inspired by the original novel, in the same way that Mamoru Hosoda's Girl Who Leapt Through Time was. In a similar vein to that, I suspect that Kenji Seki in this film will somehow be related to Koji Seki from the original book.

It's worth noting that in the first live action film, Kazumi is the lead character, with Koji supporting her against Michiru. There is a Kyogoku character in the original story as well.

Incidentally, I subtitled the most recent trailer yesterday but I don't have a Youtube account to upload it to so it's on Vimeo. I can't get my fancy fade in effects for signs to encode properly though as I know next to nothing about these kinds of things

If the actual movie visuals is as good as the PV, then I don't care if the series is some generic love triangle polygon romance series. I'll just watch it for them visuals.

And yeh, Kaoishin I think you mistakened PA Works for Makoto Shinkai. PA Works may have "shiny" backgrounds, but Shinkai's background art is on a completely different to every other studio that I know. Then again, it's a movie budget so I guess it's unfair to compare

lol well for me the title of the best background art in anime goes to the Mamoru Ooshi directed I.G movies of the 90's. Patlabor, Ghost in The Shell etc. Though Shinkai's might be a little prettier, clean and pristine (the comparison I was trying to make to how the NG trailer looks) while the 90's I.G movies looked grittier, lived in and atmospheric, but nonetheless take on a quality of their own that I fear has been losted to the dustbin of history

I wouldn't worry about the production values, knowing sunrise and studio 8 to be specific. They really focus on the animation, what I'm worried about though is the direction.

Have you seen Nakamura's previous work as director, specifically Mouryou no Hako and the Run Melos arc of Aoi Bungaku? He's a great director, you shouldn't be too worried.

Oh, no worries here. Nakamura is a better director than Shinkai.

Depends on what you're looking for. If you're looking for surreal and class then sure Nakamura. If you're looking for a simple story with godlike background art and a touching sentimental story, then Shinkai. Granted his latest film, Hoshi Wo Kodomo was dissappointing.

Disappointing perhaps, but I would argue only because of the impossible standard he set for himself with 5 CM. If most directors had come out with "Children Who Case Lost Voices" it would have been regarded as a triumph.

@Pocari Sweat: Eh... after watching his last 2 movies I don't find his directing emotional anymore .

That said, I'm taking a liking to Nakamura's directing style.

Something I didn't notice before, but a more complete staff list is up for Nerawareta Gakuen. The staff list is particularly interesting because instead of regular Sunrise staff on the movie, it looks like Ryosuke Nakamura brought with him a pretty complete team from his Madhouse projects:

Director: Ryosuke Nakamura (Aoi Bungaku Ep9-10, Mōryō no Hako)
Screenplay: Ryosuke Nakamura, Yuko Naito
Character Design/Chief Animation Director: Mieko Hosoi (Aoi Bungaku Ep9-10)
Art Director: Hidetoshi Kaneko (Aoi Bungaku Ep9-10, Mōryō no Hako)
Color design: Yuko Kobari (Aoi Bungaku Ep7-10)
Image Art: Yoshitsugi Yoshida
Screen Design: Kenichi Shimizu (Aoi Bungaku Ep9-10 animator)
Special Effects: Kumiko Taniguchi (Mōryō no Hako)
CG Director: Tomohiko Kan
Director of Photography: Shinichi Igarashi (Aoi Bungaku Ep9-10, Mōryō no Hako)
Editing: Aya Hida
Sound Director: Youji Shimizu
Music: Shusei Murai (Aoi Bungaku Ep9-10, Mōryō no Hako)

We don't know. Probably the best parallel I can think of in recent years is Colorful - another film from Sunrise - that took 8 months from cinema release to Bluray. King of Thorn took 5 months in 2010.
