It took 4 years to create this NINTENDO 3DS anime


An anime made on a Nintendo 3DS? Why not. Independent producer Mirror panel 3 released a teaser for an anime he spent four years creating. The Japanese producer, who insists he is not an animator, illustrated the anime, dubbed Ugomemo Senshi (Where Flipnote Warrior), all alone. It’s impressive next level, especially since he did the 34-minute episode almost exclusively on a Nintendo 3DS.

SoraNews24 reported the teaser for the Panel 3 anime, which the producer recently posted on his YouTube channel. Panel 3 noted that it did Ugomemo Senshi using Flipnote Studio 3D, a free downloadable animation app for the 2011 flagship handheld console. Ugomemo translates to “mobile memo,” which is another way of referring to the app.

Ugomemo Senshi tells the story of Mome Kugou, a young illustrator who meets a mystical creature who comes out of her 3DS. Kugou, whose name is an inversion of the syllables in Ugoku Memo (the Japanese name for the app), subsequently becomes a magical warrior. She fights vile monsters while defending her fellow artists from the forces of evil.

In the teaser, Kugou is seen meeting his mystical creature girlfriend, who looks like a Pokemon. The teaser then introduces the cast of the series, which includes an illustrator walking around naked in a dress and “the handsome Hayao Miyazaki”. Miyazaki, of course, is the Japanese animator and filmmaker who co-founded Studio Ghibli.

Panel 3 says it will release the full version of Ugomemo Senshi December 4. It will be 34 minutes long, and we’re all lucky that the producer is going to make it available on YouTube. In the meantime, the 3DS artist says he needs a little help and is looking for a sound editor. Which makes sense, because no animator the producer can fight alone against the evil of delays!
