Dunlop Japan has quietly launched a new campaign ahead of the Winter season that prominently features its latest Winter tires. However, this post won’t be about tires. Following up on the previous post with the background on the short and the campaign, the short titled ROAD TO YOU ~ A way to go to you ~ is officially available on the brand’s YouTube page, along with a companion website detailing the campaign, cast and staff for the short. The short is embedded below.
The anime is a promotion for Dunlop’s Winter Maxx 02 studless tires. The anime short’s story is set in a certain snowy land and centers on the intermingling feelings of three pairs of men and women: a couple, a parent and child, and coworkers.
Manga creator Shin Takahashi (SaiKano, Kanata Kakeru) provided the shorts original character designs. Hiroshi Kawamata (Puka Puka Juju, Hal’s Flute) directed the anime at The Answer Studio Co., Ltd. (Golgo 13, Flag). Kenichi Tsuchiya (The Garden of Words, your name.) designed the characters based on Takahashi’s designs and served as chief animation director. Keina Suda composed the music.
