Propeller Anime Radio Episode #28: Mamoru Hosoda, the True Heir to Hayao Miyazaki

We are back from a long hiatus! The summer ended up being extremely busy for us but we are back with a fantastic new episode of Propeller Anime Radio

This time, Kent and Shamus talk about one of Japan's most critically acclaimed directors, one Mamoru Hosoda! He's famous for directing Summer Wars, Wolf Children, and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

We'll be discussing the amazing career of Mamoru Hosoda, including his start at Toei with Digimon Adventure and One Piece, all his movies to date, and look toward his soon-to-be-in-America film, The Boy and The Beast.

Of course, since he is the heir apparent to Hayao Miyazaki's throne, we compare and contrast their styles and even see how Hosoda fares against other modern anime directors like Takeshi Koike and Makoto Shinkai. This is a fun podcast that you don't want to miss!
