Take the fight to KICKSTARTER


7th September 2015

A New Trailer!


  • Check out our new trailer!
  • Under the Dog official website renewal is complete! Starting today, all the latest information about Under the Dog will be available here on our website.



Well, the summer is officially over, but our new trailer is here.

As you can see, the production is now under way and starting to materialize. What you have seen before on Kickstarter is a pilot film, showcasing what we want to make. What you are seeing now on this website is a trailer, a glimpse of what we are making.

Here are some notes from our producer, Mr. Koji Morimoto, on the new trailer:

– During the course of the animation production, we have decided to change some of the settings for the characters and backdrops seen in our first pilot film. These alterations were necessary to create the end product that fits more closely to the original ideas presented by Mr. Ishii. So we thank you for your understanding.

– Due to our post-Kickstarter delays early on, the target date for completion of animation production has shifted to the spring of 2016. We sincerely apologize for the delay and ask for your patience.



Along with the new trailer, did you notice that our UTD website is also renewed?

    The website looks great!
    The trailer is pretty spot on for my hype. I’m glad I backed this project for sure. I also like how you showed the frame by frame movements in the characters. Really shows how much work you guys are putting in this. Definitely love it.
