On the official website of A-1 Pictures a mysterious 30-second teaser were released a while back for a new movie called Glass no Hana to Kowasu Sekai (Vitreous Flower Destroy the World). The only information the teaser gave us were three sentences: ‘The restoration of the world begins’ and ‘The Beautiful world/thing I found’ followed by a girls voice saying ‘I must go back to the place.’
This movie is actually the result of winning a prize. Pony Canyon hosted a competition called the Anime-ka Taisho (Anime Adaptation Prize) which allowed that any source material are allowed to be entered and that the winner will win an anime adaptation as prize with a nice sum of 1 Million Yen. Mediums like manga, novels, illustrations and music were allowed as source material
In 2013 an independent game production circle named Physics Point won top honors in the competition. Physics Point consists of Otono Shimura and Suyuri Hiraume and their illustration and novel called project D,backup is the raw material that the movie Glass no Hana to Kowasu Sekai (Vitreous Flower Destroy the World) is based on. A-1 Pictures (Sword Art Online) announced that the movie would be released on January 9, 2016. The director of this project is Masashi Ishihama known for his work on ‘From the New World’.
Not much is known of the plot of the movie as yet, but here are a few videos that might give us an idea. Please follow the links and have a look!
