Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is a 2D side-scrolling action game that introduces a new storyline featuring stunning animation, thrilling gameplay, and psychedelic visuals that draws players into Ranko Tsukigime's story.

Short Peaceis the anime movie compilation featuring works by legendary anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo and features Possessions, which was recently nominated for an Academy Award for best Animated Short Film, along with three other short films titled Combustible, Gambo , and A Farewell to Weapons. The fifth and final part of the Short Peace project is Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day.

By day, Ranko Tsukigime is an average high school girl who lives alone, but at night she is a deadly hitman who deftly assassinates her targets.  One fateful night as Ranko heads out to eliminate her next target, a demonic enemy organization creeps up and threatens the lives of Ranko and her friends. Players will put their reflexes and quick judgment to the test in the fast-paced platforming gameplay that will have them blazing through dangerous, obstacle-ridden environments to flee from an ominous enemy looming close behind.


Fans can look forward to a fantastical conclusion to the Short Peace collection on par with Katsuhiro Otomo's previous animation masterpieces. Katsuhiro Otomo is widely celebrated as an animation visionary who is most known for his popular cult film Akira, along with hit Japanese anime movies such as Steamboy and Memories. The Short Peacemovie and game project boasts unique visual artistry and masterful storylines that have touched audiences around the world.

"Possessions is a piece in which I realized that I was completely satisfied with myself since the staff and I honestly poured our souls into the project," said Shuhei Morita, Director of Possessions. "We are so glad that Possessions has drawn enough international attention to earn an Oscar nomination and we are looking forward to the final awards ceremony."

Key Features:

  • Fast-Paced Action: Hi-speed 2D scrolling gameplay with a constant enemy threat
  • Effects as Weapons: Hitting enemies lets off psychedelic visual effects that can hit other targets to chain combos together
  • Costumes: Playing through the game will unlock new outfits for Ranko Tsukigime
