The Return Of Otomo

Good Afternoon Housekeeping.

It's been 9 years since the world has seen a feature from KATSUHIRO OTOMO. Long since the animated gamechanger that was AKIRA and it's technically brilliant follow-up, STEAMBOY, Otomo has been quietly toiling away on another animated project now known as SHORT PEACE, a 4 part short story omnibus, debuting in Japan this July, Otomo, along with fellow creators Shuhei Morita, Hiroaki Ando, Hajime Katoki, and Kouji Morimoto, appear to be out to recapture the magic of a past Otomo classic, MEMORIES.  The international sub and dub versions are expected to appear shortly after it's Japanese debut.
