Animestyle Magazine Issue 2 - 009 RE CYBORG

The 2nd issue of Animestyle magazine ( read the review for the first issue here ) features Kamiyama Kenji’s 009 Re: Cyborg film, complete with some select character design sheets and storyboards from the film. (see images below)

The art of book for the animated film has since been released as well. I’ll decide if I want to get it after watching the film – but it does look promising from the trailers I’ve seen. Kamiyama Kenji directed the much lauded GITS Standalone Complex series, which I love, and music is by the legendary Kenji Kawai.

The magazine also showcases the prominent anime directors of 2012 and their films, including directors like Watanabe Shinichiro, Nakamura Kenji, Sayo Yamamoto ( Michiko To Hachin ) and more.

Animestyle is an excellent source of information for the latest anime productions from Japan; even if you cannot understand Japanese, the visual content and images, as well as the supplement included with the book still make it worth your while. Recommended.

Did you see this yet?

There will be a preview in London in April and a friend just asked me whether I wanted to come along. Need to make up my mind whether to watch this or attend a screen talk with Moon So-ri at the Korean Cultural Centre.

alua – Unfortunately I haven’t, there was a really limited screening here but I didn’t get to go. I think the screen talk would be a safer option.
