probably a good way to tell if imaishi animated something is if gutsy frog characters show up in it

1) company funds animated film 2) film completed after 5 years of expense + hard work by top talents 3) company doesn't release film

BUT it sure would be nice if someone actually bothered asking via the convenient website...surely there's someone there who can write in japanese?

doubt they can do anything sadly. not sure about the specifics of the rights situation but it seems event screenings are the only way

i'm kind of shocked by the apparent lack of interest. you'd think a few more people in the US would give a shit about a lost full-length film by the director of *serial experiments lain* but i guess not

Not gonna lie. Sometimes I wish we lived in an alternate reality where Ryutaro Nakamura's debut film was actually viewable ...or where his time on this earth wasn't tragically cut short.

it's by the same guy who directed "serial experiments lain" if that means anything to you

i would deeply appreciate any sort of help in spreading awareness of this lost animated film that really shouldn't be lost. write a tweet, tell your friends, mail your congressperson, anything helps

if you're interested you can email the film's restoration team with an official invite to your convention/festival. it literally couldn't be easier

if you're a decision-maker at an anime convention or film festival please ask yourself, "what am i doing at this moment that is more important than letting people see ryutaro nakamura's feature debut"

oh yeah and ohashi did the character designs and animation direction for "tomcat's big adventure." which has never been released and will never be screened in the US because no one wants to bother to check if it's legal. which it should be because it's been screened elsewhere

yeah it's ohashi's 70th birthday but we should really be celebrating the guy every day
