Linkblog: Hideaki Anno Teaches Grade School

 As every single reader of this blog better darn well know by know, I love Evangelion, and appreciate the work of Hideaki Anno. One day, while surfing the net, I came across this old NHK special, in which Anno, shortly after leaving the anime industry and at the height of his depression, teaches a Grade 6 class the basics of animation. One may chuckle at the thought, yet the special gives a surprising level of new insight into this important creative figure. A worthwhile watch for whomever enjoys Eva.

(note: this is the beginning of a series of GAINAX-themed link blogs building up to the official english release of Evangelion 2.22. My review of this movie will probably be about a month late do to some preoccupation at the time of release, so take this as an apology)
