“When people think of Japan, they think first of the atomic bomb. They think the country is isolated.
Not anymore, you can’t be too remote from home and too isolated from the rest of the world,” says Hiroshi Mikami, the Japanese filmmaker. “I’ve been writing a piece about Japan and the modern-day Japanese, and they’re really more adventurous, more dynamic, so I think people in the west who feel isolated will also feel more adventurous with this anime.
