ANIMATION HIGHLIGHT: Cassette Girl (2015)

The third season of the Japan Animator Expo ends on a nostalgic note paying homage to a famous Gainax short that old school anime fans will recognize. The impressive things about this short is how well it manages to blend CG into not only a 2D style, but also at one point make it look akin to classic 80's anime! No surprise given that this was directed by Evangelion 1.0's CG director Hiroyasu Kobayashi with art direction and character design by Big Hero 6's Shigeto Koyama!

Head to the link below to see it and click on 'EN' in the top right corner for an English subtitled version.

Please note: The short does contain nudity, so it's NSFW.
