「へんげ」×「ハカイジュウ」 実写PV


Translated by The Asahi Shimbun from the website of Anime Anime Japan Ltd.

“Hakaiju,” an apocalyptic horror manga series by Shingo Honda, has been adapted into a live-action short film.

The promotional video clip was produced by horror film “Henge” director Hajime Ohata and special effects director Kiyotaka Taguchi.

The video clip is available on the “Henge” official website.

“Hakaiju” is a popular manga series currently running in Akita Publishing Co.’s Gekkan Shonen Champion monthly comic magazine. Spanning seven volumes of manga digests, the manga has sold more than 1 million copies.

The story depicts ferocious monsters that appear out of nowhere in a town. They destroy buildings and prey on people running for their lives.

The live-action short was produced to celebrate the July 11 release of “Henge” on Blu-ray and DVD, and the July 6 release of the seventh volume of “Hakaiju.”

The two directors took 10 days to shoot scenes in Tokyo’s busy Shinjuku district and edit them into the 80-second short.

The project got off the ground after Honda and Ohata met at a theater showing “Henge.” During the event, they shared an enthusiasm to produce a live-action adaptation of “Hakaiju.”

“I wasn’t sure if a live-action adaptation could really be made,” Honda said. “But the video came out so cool, and I am really excited.”
