The long-awaited ``Tokyo Godfathers'' is the third installment of our ``Satoshi Kon Storyboard Collection'', which continued from 2017's ``Paprika'' to this spring's ``Millennium Actress.''

Three homeless people living in a corner of Shinjuku, Tokyo, who have strayed from the norm - former bicycle racer Gin-chan, former drag queen Hana-chan, and runaway girl Miyuki, meet the parents of a baby they found in a garbage dump. A story about running through the city at night in search of Christmas.

Speaking of the director, his works include ``Perfect Blue,'' which depicts the darkness of the human heart and is said to have influenced Darren Aronofsky, the director of ``Black Swan,'' and ``Perfect Blue,'' which talks about the love of movies with dazzling scenes that transcend time and space. Millennium Actress'' and Yasutaka Tsutsui's posthumous work ``Paprika'', which depicts a detective story in which dreams and reality intermingle, with a torrent of visual imagination, and many people may imagine that the theme is the conflict between fantasy and reality.

However, in 2010, the director, who passed away at the young age of 46 after making four feature films, released his third film, ``Tokyo Godfathers,'' in 2010, when he was 40 years old, Keren was abolished and set in 1930. It's a masterpiece that, in a sense, doesn't have the feel of an animation, as it's reminiscent of American comedy films from around the 1940s, a rakugo story, and a traditional Christmas story. In other words, while being orthodox and traditional, it has become experimental, and it won many awards after its release.
