Studio Ghibli producer and co-founder Toshio Suzuki unveiled a new 30-second animated short at an event in Tokyo on June 25, 2015. Suzuki and Studio Ghibli produced the short to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the Taiko no Tatsujin (Taiko: Drum Master) rhythm game series. Katsuya Kondo, the animation director for Kiki’s Delivery Service and Ponyo, organized and animated the short.
The short features Taiko no Tatsujin characters Don-chan and Kacchan, as well as an original mouse character. The short will also be broadcast as a TV ad.
