Our series highlighting the work of the most promising young anime creators returns with someone you might unknowingly be acquainted with: Naoki Yoshibe, the director behind fantastic openings for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures and Gatchaman Crowds, who also happens to be behind the yotube persona who keeps on making his effects animation clips go viral online. Prepare for an in-depth look at an artist who truly deserves it!
Another writer joins the Anime’s Future series to provide a different angle on interesting up-and-coming artists in the anime industry. Those who know me from the coverage of series like Mob Psycho 100 and My Hero Academia won’t be surprised to hear that I’ve chosen to talk about a pure animator linked to Studio BONES.
We continue to uncover the bright figures that will shape the future – and already the present to some degree – of the world of anime. This time we tackle an up-and-coming artist at Studio SHAFT who exploits his unusual background to craft unforgettable scenes as both an illustrator and key animator.
It’s time for a new series specifically focused on something we love to do: bringing attention to up-and-coming voices in the industry, be it directors, animators, and everything in between. These are anime’s future!
