Japan On Fire 17: Mamoru Oshii – Avalon & The Sky Crawlers


Closing out our coverage of Mamoru Oshii, the man with a bible in one hand and a basset hound by his other side, we’ve gone through his early days in anime, live action, how he created history by re-telling it through his Kerberos Saga and how he made history with anime classics such as Patlabor and Ghost In The Shell. In this final episode, we do the mix of live action and anime again as we take a look at his live action, POLISH language movie Avalon from 2001 and his 2008 anime The Sky Crawlers. With Kenny B and with me is VCinema‘s Coffin Jon.
