～Experience Anime by Tapping and Flipping Key Frames～
TMS Entertainment Co., Ltd. (Head offic: Nakano-ku, Tokyo, President and Representative Director: Yoshiharu Suzuki) is releasing an eBook version of “Lupin the 3rd PART IV Key Frames Collection” that was published in October 2016 as “E-SAKUGA Lupin the 3rd PART 4.” The book will be downloadable in iBooks in Japanese and English starting Wednesday, September 12, 2018.
“E-SAKUGA Lupin the 3rd PART 4” is an eBook version of “Lupin the 3rd PART IV Key Frames Collection” that was published in October 2016 with additional never-before-published cuts.
E-SAKUGA’s original “Tapmation” allows users to tap the screen and flip through key frames to see anime drawings actually in motion; this provides a new experience that is different from what paper can provide.
In addition, time sheets (X-sheets), layouts, and more are included in addition to the key frames. The final video of the cut is also available in the same screen, so the product would be perfect not only for Lupin fans but also future animators.
