Animated short film
SAWADA Yutaro / SHINKAI Taketo [Japan]
This short animated comedy film is set in an imaginary town where hip-hop is pervasive. It gained attention with KIMURA Subaru of Hypnosismic playing the main character Yohei, and a guest voice part by the hip-hop unit Creepy Nuts. The film carves out a new anime & hip-hop for kids genre, including a Rap de Utao Momo Taro, an up-tempo rap kami shibai (paper card story show).
