Biography

Masterful animator and director Mamoru Hosoda has been called ?the preeminent director of theatrical animation in Japan today, the obvious spiritual heir to Hayao Miyazaki.? (Brain Camp, Otaku USA Magazine) This is high praise indeed, but Hosoda?s stellar body of work certainly merits any and all plaudits. Trained as an oil painter at Kanazawa University of Arts and Crafts, Hosoda honed his considerable skills working at famed anime production houses such as Toei and Studio Ghibli. His directorial credits include The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars, and Wolf Children, all three of which received the Japan Academy Prize for Best Animated Film.
