YesAsia Editorial Description

Singapore filmmaker and former comic artist Eric Khoo (My Magic) pays loving tribute to legendary mangaka Tatsumi Yoshihiro in a meticulous animated feature that stunningly combines Tatsumi's short stories and life story. Staying faithful to the original comics' aesthetics, the film parallels five of the artist's dark stories of despair, perversion, and alienation with different chapters in his life. Tatsumi himself narrates about growing up in postwar Japan, his encounters with Tezuka Osamu, and his pioneering of the adult-oriented gekiga genre, providing a fascinating window into the life and works of one of Japan's most influential artists.

TATSUMI celebrates the life and work of Japanese comics artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi. In post-war occupied Japan, young Tatsumi's passion for comics eventually becomes a means of supporting his poor family. Already published as a teenager, talented Tatsumi finds even greater inspiration after meeting his idol, famous Disneyesque animator Osamu Tezuka. Despite his steady success, Tatsumi begins to question why Japanese comics should cater to children with cute and whimsical tales and drawings. In 1957, Tatsumi coins the term gekiga (dramatic pictures) and redefines the manga landscape by encouraging an alternative genre for adults. Realistic and disquieting, Tatsumi's work begins to grapple with the darker aspects.
