Chimamire My Love (My Blood-stained Love) is one of the first official big digital media project to be made. The anime/manga hybrid for portable devices such as the iPad and also, in the future, Android mobile devices. The man behind this is Mamoru Oshii. Sounds familiar? Why not since he is also director of such anime as: Ghost in the Shell, Sky Crawlers and the live-action movie Stray Dog.
Chimamire My Love is about a teenage high-school student who meets a girl through a blood donation site. She is in desperate need of donors and he is the one who will gather them and provide her as much of the precious liquid as possible. The comedy factor is that she is actually a vampire. Can you imagine how she plans to use the blood?
The project will premiere at the largest international short-film festival in the world, the Clermont-Ferrand, France in February, 2012.
