Episode Five: Kobun Shizuno!

あ!PoN Episode Five! And so another Monday is here, and with our vacation at an end (they never seem long enough), the あ!PoN crew is back sacrificing our free time to bring you, the very best in exclusive video interviews with anime luminaries. It’s time once again to get regular with a healthy dose of inside dirt!

In this episode, we interview emerging Director Kobun Shizuno

Episode Five: Kobun Shizuno! from Tasayu Tasnaphun on Vimeo.
Most known for his directing the GI Joe Sigma 6 Series. Mr. Shizuno has also worked and is currently working on a number of other projects under a pseudonym and so we can not reveal what they are at this time. It just shows ta’ go ya, that the anime business makes you pay your dues and then some, no matter who you are or where you’re going.

  • Mr. Shizuno has previously worked under the mentoring of Director Koichi Ohata.
  • Mr. Shizuno listed the works of Hayao Miyazaki, and Macross, among his artistic influences.
  • Both Mr. Shizuno and Mr. Ohata were in New York to check out the Intrepid Museum for references to military and aeronautic machinery. They also made a quick stop at the twice annual Chiller Theatre convention in New Jersey.
We hope you are enjoying our interview series, and please join us again in two weeks where we will bring you an exclusive video interview with Tommy Yune, director of ROBOTECH: The Shadow Chronicles. Plus a special rant-supplement by あ!PoN’s own Angry Otaku.

Other upcoming interviews:
Harold Sakuishi
