' We also created animations for the guardians of 'Beast player Erin'.

Mr. Uehashi and Representative Ishikawa of Production IG have made comments on the animation film.

Original author Naho Kamihashi:
'The king of deer' is a movie.
When I was asked to make a film, the first words were 'Huh? It would be impossible!'
'King of deer' is a rather complicated story, so I thought it would be too difficult to describe in a single film.
However, I was relieved to hear that Production IG made it. If you are Mr. IG, you will not create too much in the original, and you will create an interesting movie as an animation.
You can see the van running across the flying deer in the majestic wilderness!
Now, anyway, it is more fun than anything.

Production IG Representative Ishikawa Mitsuhisa:
When I read 'The King of Deer', I felt that this was a 'Don't Make' work. Actually, I still think.
It was because I felt that it was no longer possible to express the “story of life” in a delicate, deep, magnificent world with images.
However, a human being 'created' appeared. The staff of the staff who gathered based on the idea of expressing 'the king of deer' with animation made me feel crazy beyond imagination.
This is not only the theme of the work, but also the theme of the battle that drew on IG's fortune.

In addition, the original latest publication 'The King of Deer' The Bridge of the Bottom of Water is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. The list price is 1600 yen excluding tax.
