Linked Brain Inc. (Representative Directors: Koichi Shimizu, Shingo Iwamoto. Address: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. Hereafter, “Linked Brain”) has joined the production committee for “Hakatamentai! Pirikarakochan,” an animated film focusing closely on Hakata.
In addition to just the animation, Linked Brain will be involved in the production committee for the production of content that will showcase what a great place Fukuoka is.
“Hakata Mentai! Pirikarako-chan” a short-form animated series inspired by the town of Hakata and its famous products, is to be broadcast this summer by Kyushu Asahi Broadcasting.
The director is Taketomo Ishikawa, known for “Hana Kappa” and “Oshiri Kajiri Mushi,” with a top-rated production crew and cast of famous voice actors.
A digest version will also be shown at the 11th Okinawa International Movie Festival. There will also be a panel discussion featuring the director, Taketomo Ishikawa, and the voice actress of Pirikarakochan, Hiyori Kono. We invite you all to attend.
Get ready for a wild romp down a mysterious shopping street where the Hakata vibe is strong—but just a mirage—and aggressive tactics to work the appetite up to full rev are rampant. This zany film follows Pirikarakochan, a mentaiko (seasoned cod roe) fairy who flits around the area helping (or at least trying to help?) other food fairies with their problems and getting to the bottom of gossipy rumors.
