I am quite a fan of Yuasa Masaaki. Try Ping Pong for a start. That or Kaiba. Takahata gets the short shrift all too often, as the other cofounder of Ghibli Studio. Only Yesterday is my favourite film of his. A shout out to Shinkai Makoto's Garden of Words, a film about (among other things) shoemaking. A copy of Vass's book makes an appearance inside.
