Stylistically Retro: Kaiba

Image

This animation by Japanese creator Masaaki Yuasa is being hailed a classic great, not only for 2008 but of all time. The visual imagery is a throwback to 1970s animation, with its simple and touching designs. Something seen as childish and cheap, but in Kaiba is transformed into something stylistically retro and chic.

Not only does the animation catch your eye but the story line delivers something new, abstract and delicious.  Kaiba is essentially a science fiction love story, set in a world where memories can be transferred to new bodies and even sold.  Kaiba, the main character, awakes to find he has no memory, as we watch him travel across space in search of some kind of origin. 

This animation won a prize in excellence for animation at the Japan 2008 Arts Media Festival.

It’s worth the watch.
