Japan meets Chappie

Neill Blomkamp's latest film 'Chappie' takes a lot of inspiration from Japanese Anime. So in honour of it's obvious homages, directors Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell), Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed), and illustrator Masahiro Ito (Silent Hill) contributed illustrations for the film's Japanese home video release!

Mamoru Oshii, known for his love of Basset Hounds provided this cute little image:

Shinji Aramaki drew an image of another mech from the film called the 'Moose.'

Masahiro Ito illustrated a scene from the film that he liked that also involved a dog whom Chappie tries to communicate with.
