Teaser website gives hints of mysterious noitaminA ‘Un-Go’ series

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

“Un-Go” (“an-go”), slated to begin airing on Fuji Television Network Inc.’s “noitaminA” midnight animation slot from October, has released a teaser website to pique fan interest.

Aside from the title, the website shows only images apparently related to the anime. Further details remain a mystery for now.

The “noitaminA” block airs high-quality anime titles, often ambitious and experimental works.

Launched June 9, the teaser site features the title logo and a message saying it will hit Fuji TV’s “noitaminA” slot from October 2011. Along the bottom are links to social media sites.

No story or characters are yet described, nor are production details listed.

The realistic images of ordinary scenes, such as a cigarette burning in an ashtray, look close to photographic quality. It appears to be a promising indication of the style of the anime to come.

A different scene is presented at the site each time it is loaded, and each scene slowly morphs into a slightly different one.

The producers of this mysterious title seem intent on raising its profile by releasing information in dribs and drabs, hoping to keep its audience interested. Presumably, there will be more to come.
