The much-talked-about puppet anime “PUI PUI Molcar” will be released on Blu-rays&DVDs on July 28, 2021. This time, they thought ‘the audio commentary of over 30 minutes for the entire episode was not enough!’ so, it was suddenly decided to include additional dialog interview footage on the Blu-rays. At the same time, a comment video has arrived from director Misato Tomoki and production staff Sato Katsura, who have just finished the recording.
“PUI PUI Molcar” was broadcast in January 2021 as the first TV anime series directed by a young and talented puppet anime creator Misato Tomoki. It is a short animation of 2 minutes and 40 seconds per episode that has been trending on Twitter since it was first aired and has made a huge impact in Japan and abroad.
Even with the audio commentary for all 12 episodes as a video bonus for the software release, it is still a little over 30 minutes. There are many stories that can’t be covered in this short amount of time ……, so at the suggestion of Director Misato, a dialog interview with Sato Katsura, a representative of the production staff, was realized.
Director Misato was dressed as the annoying driver of DJ Molcar from the first episode, while Sato was dressed as a bank robber from the second episode, and they talked about the difficulties and behind-the scenes stories of the production.
In addition, a comment video from both of them after the recording has arrived.
In the video, they also talk about the secret stories of the midsummer shooting and what director Misato paused to realize.
The “PUI PUI Molcar” Blu-rays will be released on July 28 for 6,800 JPY (tax not included), the DVDs for 2,500 JPY (tax not included), and the DVDs with AR tin badge set for 3,500 JPY (tax not included).
The Blu-rays, which include a dialogue interview and audio commentary, will be produced on a limited basis with a pre-order deadline of May 11.
