Animation Akira Storyboards 2 - Otomo The Complete Works

In our warehouse.


The animated movie version "Akira", which was released in theaters in 1988, has revolutionized the world of animation beyond the realm of manga.

This book is the second volume of a huge amount of storyboards drawn by Katsuhiro Otomo himself, the original author and director, in the production of the anime version. In addition to the complete recording of the latter half "C / D part" of all four parts A, B, C, and D that make up the entire movie, new elements such as previously unpublished cuts and commentary pages by the author himself are also included in this book.

Around 1987, the author, who was serializing the original manga version "Akira", interrupted the serialization for the production of the movie version and started the series only in the storyboard of this book, the mechanism and background drawn with the same tension as the serialization. The elaborateness of the character and the dynamic feeling of the character are not inferior to those of the main story of the manga. In addition, the old version of the storyboard collection published by the editorial department of Young Magazine in 1988 was out of print in a short period of time, and the second volume, which is the latter part, was particularly difficult to obtain, but it has been 30 years in this complete collection. Reprint for the first time in the above is realized. Finally, the ban will be lifted for full specifications. Please come and experience the author's amazing animation production technique.The title of the book, "Storyboards," is the English notation for "storyboards."
