Kuuchuu Buranko (Trapeze)



Seems nobody has opened a thread for this yet.

New anime form Mononoke's team which will be aired in the Noitamina block this fall. It's based on a novel by Okuda Hideo which won the Naoki Prize in 2004. In 2005 the novel got also a TV Drama adaptation. Official site: http://www.kuchu-buranko.com/

Staff:
Director: Nakamura Kenji ("Mononoke")
Assistant: Kimitochi Chioka ("Hakaba Kitaro", noitamina version)
Character Designer: Hashimoto Takashi ("Mononoke")
Series Composition : Manabu Ishikawa ("Mononoke")
Script : Isao Murayama, Tomoko Taguchi
Art Director: Shoji Tokiwa
Photography: Kazuhiro Yamada (director of photography of two Manglobe's series)
Music: Hideharu Mori
Production Studio: Toei Animation

Cover:
Spoiler:


Short synopsis:
Irabu Ichiro is an eccentric psychiatrist. Patients, who visit him to have a counseling, are perplexed with his weird behavior.

Actually I don't know anything about this novel, but Mononoke is one of the greatest anime of these last years ever made, so I hope for something really good from Nakamura.

Fixed, now it's clearer.

So, correct me if I'm wrong, this is Hideo Okuda's second book with Doctor Irabu as protagonist. The first one is “In the Pool” which was published in 2002 and had a great success in Japan. You can find a good reading here (thanks to AnimeDays) which explains a little of the author's style and the behavior of the main character.

Just to speculate a bit, I did read that "Kuchu Buranko" consists of 5 stories, each featuring a different patient:
  • Kūchū Buranko (which gave the title to the book)
  • Harinezumi
  • Yôfu no zura
  • Hot Corner
  • Joryű sakka
Now I wonder if Nakamura will structure the series into different arcs of 2 or 3 episodes each for every story. Mononoke had a similar structure in that sense. Also, 5 stories seems a bit too much for an eleven episodes series, so I guess he would probably select just 3 or 4 of them. And like Mononoke, for each story there could be a different scriptwriter and maybe a different storyboarder too. I don't know if it is possible, but the book isn't really long and it could be a good way to adapt it into anime.

From Chartfag's list:

Quote:
In modern Japan, people visit "doctors of neurology" rather than therapists. Dr. Ichiro Irabu is an eccentric neurologist with an injection fetish, an Oedipus complex and a green Porsche, known for making patients much worse before they get better.
I was born to see this.

Don't forget to post a link.

I'm interested too in this series. I think the only down part is the fact the production company is the dreaded, cheapskate Toei. On a brighter note, the synopsis doesn't indicate the show will require flamboyant movement to capture its audience. Sounds like the merit of the show is its story told words-heavy dialogues.

i don't know if you saw Mononoke but that was in fact Toei.

Toei is to be rightly condemmed for their mainly bottom of the barrel production quality but it's not a 100% factor. The 6th and 9th One piece movies were well done as was the Digimon films (directed by Mamoru Hosoda who did TokiKake). Also, Ashita no Nadja was very nice and individial eps of One Piece approach a quality of those special Naruto eps, so while rare, they can make good stuff.

I don't know how but the Director Kenji Nakamura seems to attract talented animators and stylists to his work, so he will probably make like Mononoke and get a lotta good freelance people, along with whatever talented people Toei has on staff. (At least I hope)

The team working on this is basically the same that worked on Mononoke so that should be the least of our worries. I'm extremely excited for this anime.
