Based on the legendary comic by Taiyo Matusmoto, Tekkonkinkreet is the directorial debut of THE ANIMATRIX producer Michael Arias. Cutting-edge 3D-CG blends with old-fashioned hand drawn animation to create a movie of tremendous energy and momentum.
With harmony of STUDIO4°C’s skilled creators such as Hiroaki Ando (co-director), Shinji Kimura (art director), and Shojiro Nishimi (character designer and animation director), Tekkonkinkreet is a shining example of a high quality, no-compromise animation production of STUDIO4°C.
UK Techno masters Plaid's soundtrack helps bring Taiyo Matsumoto's profound, poetic work to vivid life. The protagonists WHITE and BLACK were voiced by Kazuya Ninomiya from the Japanese popular singer group ARASHI and young performing actress Yu Aoi. Also some of the best talents in the industry joined for the main characters.
