There Are Bigger Things Going On In Japan Now...

... but that's being covered by others much better than I can ever do it justice. I hope for the best.

For now, though, I'll offer the latest trailer for Makoto Shinkai's upcoming movie:

Definitely a different direction setting-wise than his previous movies: a kind of contemporary/fantasy hybrid going on in there. There's definitely some kind of sword-fight sceme, but there's also a quick shot of what looks to be some kind of automatic pistol in a drawer in there too. I can't wait to see it!

Interview with Tekkon Kinkreet's Director

One of the biggest things that intrigued me about Tekkon Kinkreet is not just the reception it already received in Japan, nor the fact that it was produced by Studio 4ºC (Though that is the major reason I first took notice of this movie), but the fact that it was directed by an American. A rookie American director, at that. Though Micheal Arias has lived in Japan for 15 years and has worked with Studio 4ºC in the past on projects like the Animatrix, this is the time a westerner was at the helm of a Japanese animated feature.

And, more importantly, AniPages Daily has an excellent interview with the man! There's also information after the interview about the premier of the movie in New York City on April 25-30 for those who are in the area.

A New Movie by Satoshi Kon?

Woah! I can't believe I missed this post on Anime News Network about that Paprika May Contend for an Oscar! Paprika is a Japanese animated movie that's directed by the venerable Satoshi Kon , one of my most favorite directors in anime (Second only to Makoto Shinkai) and I'm pretty excited to see what he comes up with here!
