Hirano on Fantastic World

Ryo Hirano, whose quirky manga work Fantastic World is in the Kawaii&Epikku exhibition at Viborg Manga and Animé Museum, and his short film Holiday in the Japanese Short Films for Adults program in Viborg Animation Festival, will talk about his educational background, what inspired him to become an animation / manga artist, and how Fantastic World was born. He will explain the reality surrounding the independent animation artists in Japan. Some artists, artworks and events including the earthquake in 2011, that affected the foundation of Fantastic World, will be discussed in this artist-talk.
