The Echo of Astro Boy's Footsteps (Documentary)

Variety: "Traversing the worlds of early anime and Japan's experimental music scene, "The Echo of Astro Boy's Footsteps" reps a treasure trove for otaku (geeks). Subject Matsuo Ohno called himself a sound designer long before the term came into vogue, and this unassuming docu illustrates how vital his work was to anime's legacy. Pic's quaint style, including the narration's over-familiar intimacy in the manner of Chris Marker's "Sunless," will annoy some Western auds, but others, especially fanboys, will be enticed. Asian and music-themed fests should tune in."

The story is too old to be commented.
