Visitors to Comiket 91, December 29-31 at Tokyo Big Sight, are going to get an early chance to pick up a special anime book. The Art of Tadashi Hiramatsu will be the first volume collecting the works of an important creator who worked on Gainax's '90s notable. He was then back for Rebuild of Evangelion (key animation). And, more recently, he was character designer on Parasyte -the maxim- and Yuri !!! on ICE.
Earlier today, Animator Expo announced that Tadashi Hiramatsu, an animator on Evangelion and the character designer/animation director for the 1998 Gainax adaptation of His and Her Circumstances, would be returning for a second short. This is a good excuse to look back to earlier this spring for a tribute that Junichiro Taniguchi, a fellow character designer/animation director (Madoka Magica, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun) offered for Hiramatsu's March birthday.
North American anime distributor Manga Entertainment has begun streaming the English dub of His and Her Circumstances on YouTube. Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno and protege/Rebuild director Kazuya Tsurumaki helm the 1998 Gainax/J.C. Staff adaptation of Masami Tsuda shoujo about a superficially perfect praise addict who meets rival upon entering high school. More after the jump.
