Description

In the tradition of Stone Bridge Press releases such as Hayao Miyazaki and Anime Classics Zettai!, this colorful book provides a comprehensive introduction to the work and vision of Japanese director Satoshi Kon, anime’s premier illusionist. The 2007 US release of Kon's mind-bending film Paprika put him on the map. Fans will be thrilled to discover his entire pantheon of masterpieces, including Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, and the satirical TV series Paranoia Agent.

Andrew Osmond is a British freelance film reviewer and journalist who was part of the “Akira generation” of anime fans. He has been writing about cartoons and anime for ten years and has interviewed numerous anime professionals, including Satoshi Kon. His articles and reviews have appeared in Animerica, Total Anime, Neo, Manga Max, SFX, Sight and Sound, Empire, and many other magazines.
