Cencoroll 3 Anime Sequel Announced
According to the director, the sequel anime will be the finale in the series and a still teaser was also revealed which you can check out down below. MAL describes the story of the first movie as,
When a gigantic, unearthly monster suddenly looms on the skyline of a Japanese city, the expected occurs—the Japan Self-Defense Forces roll out the tanks while the public panics. Nobody knows what it is or where it came from, but Yuki, a bold and inquisitive teenage girl, has a secret but might be a useful clue. Her friend Tetsu has been clandestinely caring for a bizarre creature called Cenco, which will soon prove itself to have some remarkable, even impossible characteristics. Another teenage boy, a stranger with some mysterious link to the monstrosity attacking the city, shows up, and his unwelcome interest in Tetsu’s pet snuffs out any doubt of a connection—and lights the fuse for the coming battle.
After 10 years a sequel to the first movie was released, however, Uki mentioned the fans will not have to wait another 10 years for the finale but it will be done as quickly as possible. Aniplex will be screening the 2nd movie at Anime Expo on July 4. The joint screening is playing in six theaters in Japan. The artist ryo of supercell returned to compose the music.
