Some of you might remember Ushio Tazawa from this Taisai commercial and also as the character designer and animation director of The Place Promised in Our Early Days and key animator on 5 Centimeters Per Second along other titles.

Well, looks like Tazawa will be creating and directing his own 75 minute theatrical film called Ichirin-sha.  From ANN:

On a planet very similar to the earth… Here, the missile mechanoids started to have its own will and control, and were driving the human beings into serious danger.

Shaleen was the last "ICHIRIN-SHA (unicyclist)" in the world, traveling the world on his beat up motor unicycle. One day, when Shaleen was running from the attacks of the missile mechanoids, he stops by a ghost town and meets a mysterious girl who was constantly targeted by the mechanoids. She was a girl who had chosen to live alone in this ghost town, trying to avoid any others from getting involved. The girl unwelcomed [sic] his company too, but Shaleen's pushing character gradually makes her give in little by little.

However, this change of the girl's emotion takes effect on the missile mechanoids, and enlarges them at an enormous size.

What is the mystery of the girl's power?

What will become of the battle against the gigantic missile mechanoids?

This is a thrilling action-fantasy depicting the soul interaction between Shaleen and the mysterious girl, inside a unique and majestic world.

The Anime Innovation Tokyo (AIT) production company is the joint venture that sponsored last year's Cencoroll short film.

This might be interesting to keep an eye on in the future.
