Overview

While visiting Japan, animation writer Chris Robinson gets lost. As he drifts through Tokyo, Hiroshima, and Kyoto he happens upon a number of mysterious figures including Bob Dylan, Haruki Murakami, Sumo wrestlers, Big Bird and, by good chance, many famous Japanese animators—both living and dead. Each of these characters takes Robinson into a deep, dark, mysterious world of Japanese animation that does not include Godzilla, Akira, Anime, Manga, or Hasao Miyazaki. This inventive and unusual study rewrites the history of Japanese animation looking at the work of Atsushi Wada, Taku Furukawa, Renzo and Sayoko Kinoshita, Maya Yonesho, and many more.
