This is wonderful. I do see the Lord using this to testify to the many anime fans out there. May the Gospel of the Lord Jesus be preached to the whole world!
About 7 years ago, in Budapest, a few of us brainstormed an idea for creating a version of Jesus’ story in Japanese “Anime” form. We convinced former Disney animator, Barry Cooke and worked for years to massage various scripts, music and concepts. HERE IT IS!
At one point it was the story of Jesus meeting the “Demoniac.” Eventually, we decided the first story would be about Jesus’ death and resurrection.
This story unfolds through the eyes of a criminal who receives the same brutal crucifixion sentence as Christ. “My Last Day” is a short film of regret, repentance and redemption. Animé created by The JESUS Film Project, with Barry Cook and Studio 4C (株式会社スタジオよんどしい Kabushiki-Gaisha Sutajio Yondo Shii). They created Animatrix, Tekkon Kinkreet and Gotham Knight.
Hopefully this will be the first of many short stories of Jesus’ life. Thank you all for the years of prayer.
