Hiroyasu Kobayashi’s Cassette Girl (#JapanAnimatorExpo)


"Cassette Girl" ["Kasetto Gāru" (カセットガール) ] by Hiroyasu Kobayashi (CGI Director for Evangelion: 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0) is the last listed anime short (#35) in the Japan Animator Expo project, with the plot summary being: ”20XX year, the world was wrapped in deep snow. In the world, the people of dim cold winter had been managing all [THE MEDIA].”

Or as I would call it; ”A splendid anime nostalgic jaunt back to the simpler world of VHS and the 80s”! The “Prime” silhouette as the “villain” was an interesting touch, and the sudden shift to a 4x3 screen format was also quite a swell touch, IMHO :)
