The Dawn of the Seeker anime will be hitting select screens across the U.S. (and one in Canada) on May 24th before the movie hits DVD.
The movie features a young heroine named Cassandra, who is “a brash and beautiful warrior, must stop a conspiracy that threatens the realm’s most powerful religious order. Accused of treasonous crimes and hunted by friend and foe, Cassandra must clear her name and overcome her rage in order to save the day and take her place in legend” (From the Amazon preorder page). Directed by live action and anime filmmaker Fumihiko Sori (Ping Pong, Ichi, Vexille), I can say based on her filmography that Dawn of the Seeker should at least be easy on the eyes.
As you can see from the clip below, the movie is a CG/2D hybrid (where 2D characters essentially laid over 3D models). Vexille) and 2004’s Appleseed both used a similar technique.
For those of you looking to check the movie out during this limited engagement, the first 100 people to show up at their local screening will get a free t-shirt.
You can find out more details about the screenings on the ticketing page.
Dragon Age: Dawn of the Seeker will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on May 29th.
