    SciFi Japan is pleased to present an exclusive preview of MIDNIGHT THE ERA, an upcoming kaiju short, created by an exceptional team of university students, that combines animation with traditional Japanese tokusatsu FX techniques.

    MIDNIGHT THE ERA is being produced by the independent film studio, Studio Mujaku. Established in Noivember 2021, Studio Mujaku is fully staffed by college students, mainly those studying art. The movie is being financially backed through a fundraising campaign, with a tentative completion date of July 2023. Unlike many student works, MIDNIGHT THE ERA will not be released on YouTube. Instead, it is scheduled to premiere at the Summer 2023 Comiket comic convention in Tokyo. DVDs of the film will also be sold at Studio Mujaku's booth during the convention.
