Synopsis

Feature-length anime from Singapore, depicting the life and work of celebrated manga artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi in an old-school, hand-drawn style. The film, which traces Tatsumi's life from his childhood in Second World War Japan through to his reinvention of the manga genre and his creation of the 'gekiga' comic in the post-war years, weaves five of his stories in with the biographical narrative of his life as an artist.
