Director Okada Mari
The story of “Alice to Therese no Maboroshi Koujou” depicts the fate and fight of the teenagers, who are struggling in the shady world, using their “feeling of love” as the weapon. Together with this reliable team of staff, we will challenge this while keeping our feet on the ground and pursuing an animation film that can only be created by this team. There is still a long way to go before it is completed, but I want to show it to everyone as soon as possible.
