Osamu Kobayashi: Hayao Miyazaki’s New Work Is About Zero Fighter Designer

Share


Anime director Osamu Kobayashi (Beck, Paradise Kiss) reported on his Twitter account on Tuesday that he heard that Hayao Miyazaki‘s latest work will tell the story of the designer of the Zero Fighter, the Mitsubishi A6M Zero fighter aircraft used by the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II.

The wife of the late animator Yoshinori Kanada (Final Yamato, Gaiking) replied to this, saying that her husband loved planes, and that it was sad that he could not participate in the title’s production. This prompted animator Takashi Hashimoto (Ayakashi – Samurai Horror Tales, Kūchū Buranko) to note that Studio Ghibli conducted a large-scale search for animators who could draw airplanes, and that he himself saw storyboards for the title.

Ghibli producer Toshio Suzuki previously stated that the new work of studio founder and Academy Award-winning animator Hayao Miyazaki is an autobiography. However, Suzuki did not specify if the work is Miyazaki’s own autobiography, or an adaptation of another person’s autobiography.
