Publisher acttil, made up former employees of NIS America, have been on a role lately with announcements like distributing Little Witch Academia in the West. Now they set their sights on a peculiar picture e-book called Blik-0 1946, that was written by none other than famed composer Nobuo Uematsu.
Blik-0 1946 is a story about a robot who begins to feel and experience human emotions as he’s tries to live life as a human. He was created differently from other robots; as most wish to become human, Blik-0 was programed to naturally imitate them. Though begins to struggle with the new found emotions like sadness, anger, and love .
Not only did Nobou write the story, he also composed tracks that go along with the story while we read. The synopsis definitely screams for a lighthearted, but somber tale — and you know Nobuo, he ain’t no stranger to music that would make you bawl like a baby when the need arises. Hiroki Ogawa will also be involved, providing the illustrations. Given the samples acttil provided, they’re cute and have that touch of innocence to them. You can check them out below.
Blik-0 1946 will be released on the iTunes Store in August of this year for $9.99.
