Polygon Pictures' First Collaboration with Chinese Firm!
Promotional Video for Hit Mobile Game Onmyoji Released!

Polygon Pictures ("PPI", President and CEO: Shuzo Shiota, Head Office: Tokyo, Japan) is proud to announce our collaboration with NetEase (Chinese: 網易公司, Founder and CEO: William Lei Ding) in the creation of the latest promotional video for the hit mobile RPG Onmyoji, which has passed 200 million downloads.

Onmyoji was first released in September 2016, and quickly captivated users with its detailed worldbuilding, dramatic story, and high-quality graphics, sound, and music. It was released in Japan in February 2017, and as users continue to grow around the world, it has become a smash hit, with over 200 million downloads.

In this animated promotional video, we have leveraged our studio's unique cel-look CG visual style to recreate the world of Onmyoji. A new harbinger of woe has trailed Seimei Abe and Kagura as they attend a summer festival...

NetEase's directors for Onmyoji, Ms. He Xi and Ms. Hu Xiaoliang, had this to say about collaborating with Polygon Pictures: "Working with Polygon Pictures was a valuable experience for us at NetEase. From the beginning to end of this project, they provided numerous suggestions and responded in a professional manner, and the final result was a work of very high quality. We are very much looking forward to working with Polygon Pictures again".

This marks the first time that PPI has collaborated with a Chinese firm. Cutting our teeth on this project, we plan to continue expanding the Japanese animation business globally, into not only Western but also Asian markets.
