Anime for Oculus Quest will put players in Nishikata’s viewpoint
A crowdfunding campaign launched on the Makuake site to produce a virtual reality (VR) anime of Sōichirō Yamamoto‘s Teasing Master Takagi-san (Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san) manga on Monday. The crowdfunding campaign seeks to raise 1.5 million yen (about US$14,000) to produce a VR anime for the Oculus Quest platform. The campaign will run until October 10.
The anime will put players in the viewpoint of Nishikata, the manga’s protagonist and target of Takagi’s teasing. It will recreate notable scenes from the original manga and anime, and the Oculus Rift will allow players to join Takagi in going home from school or going to the beach.
The first television anime premiered within the “Anime no Me” programming block in January 2018, and it also adapted Yamamoto’s Ashita wa Doyōbi manga as segments within the show. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan, and Funimation streamed the series with an English dub.
