Diamond Daydream Volume 1: Atsuko + Karin DVD
One Winter. Six Women. Countless Broken Hearts.
Directed by Bob Shirohata (Gravitation) and created by Oiji Hiroi (Sakura Wars), Diamond Daydreams is actually six stories of love and loss that become intertwined in the bitter cold winter of Hokkaido. Based on the popular Japanese videogame for the PS2, Diamond Daydreams is lushly animated by fan-favorite Studio DEEN (Fruits Basket, Maison Ikkoku).
Synopsis: The bitter-cold winter of Hokkaido meets the warmth of the human heart, as six women suffer through their own tragic love stories before fate brings them all together. We begin with Atsuko, whose arranged marriage collapses in the face of a love triangle. Then there’s Karin, a sickly schoolgirl who develops a crush on her doctor, only to have it blow up in her face. These are just two of the women chasing their own Diamond Daydreams.
A DVD-only release including episodes one through four, presented in both English and Japanese with English subtitles. Extras include the original Japanese TV spots, an interview with director Bob Hirohata, a special video segment called “DDD Time,” a Hokkaido travelogue, a feature on “The Food of Hokkaido,” and “Panda’s Diamond Dust Drops Diary Part 1,” plus clean opening animation, clean closing animation, and previews of upcoming ADV Films releases.
