Hideaki Anno(http://www.khara.co.jp/hideakianno/), a popular film director as well as an animator was in charge of management of a temporary art museum of “TOKUSATSU- Special Effects Museum” wihich is a special exhibition at Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo in Koto-ward Tokyo Jul.10-Oct.8. (http://www.ntv.co.jp/tokusatsu/english.html)
The venue has displays of a lot of and various items, data, and movies. Diorama of houses ,towns and other scenes used in Sci-fi movies, models of spaceships, robots, masks and figure dolls and other items of monsters, super heroes etc… were all around there which attracted visitors some of whom were adults , some of whom were children. As you walk by you could learn a lot of details about famour or popular sci-fi , fantasy, or action types of TV shows ,movies animation as well as a long history and general flows of that industry’s developments for decades. In addition, audio recording guilding service was available. i myself visted there and it was so intresting that it took more than three hours to finish it.
Anno has joined prohects such as “Nausica of Vally of winds”, “Gundam”,”Evangelion” and other worldwide popular anime and works.His great career directly reflected to the exhibited items. In addition, His newest work which Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki joined was released and shown for the first time to the visitors. It is a 10-minute long special effects movie called “Kyoshinnhei Tokyo ni arawaru”(/ Giant soldiers of artificial creatures showed up in Tokyo ) and the colossal robot soldiers destroy Tokyo which was a description of The seven Days of Fire depicted a bit in Nausica, an anime of Miyazaki 28 years ago. I visited there and saw the movie and found them qute good and interesting.
Though the temporary museum was already closed, as the event was so popular that now Anno and his staf are considering of hosting the same event in many venues nationwide as a moving art museum, which may attract even more people from now on.
