Renowned anime director Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli producer and former president Toshio Suzuki and Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno recently visit Rikuzentakata, Iwate prefecture in northeast Japan to show their support for the community extensively damaged by the  2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. 


Hideaki Anno worked as an animator for Studio Ghibli forerunner Topcraft on Miyazaki's Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind.  Anno impressed the crew so much that Toshio Suzuki has said that there was talk of making the ecological epic a trilogy with Anno directing the middle feature.
