Osamu Dazai’s No Longer Human, a masterpiece of Japanese literature, receives a bold new birth from the creative dream team of Katsuyuki Motohiro, Fuminori Kizaki, Tow Ubukata, and Polygon Pictures.
Osamu Dazai’s immortal novel No Longer Human depicts the life of a man falling into ruin.
This timeless masterpiece, whose literary depth and perspective on life and death still carry a powerful impact, has been dynamically re-envisioned by a dream team of world-renowned Japanese creators.
Acting as upervisor is Katsuyuki Motohiro, whose Bayside Shakedown and Psycho-Pass took Japan by storm.
Directing is Fuminori Kizaki, whose singular vision, as seen in Afro Samurai, Basilisk, and Bayonetta: Bloody Fate has earned acclaim both in Japan and internationally.
The script is by novelist Tow Ubukata, whose many awards include the Nihon SF Taisho Award for Mardock Scramble and the Yoshikawa Eiji Prize for New Writers for Tenchi Meisatsu (Tenchi: The Samurai Astronomer). The story’s world takes on vibrant life through character designs by Yusuke Kozaki, known for his work creating characters for franchises like Pokemon GO and Fire Emblem, and concept art by Kenichiro Tomiyasu, veteran of large-scale Japanese and international projects including Final Fantasy XI and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Moreover, animation production is by Polygon Pictures, the studio that has won numerous awards worldwide for Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Transformers: Prime, and has carried on its visual revolution with Blame! and the animated Godzilla film trilogy.
This new and radical creative team will astonish the world with Human Lost, an envisioning of Dazai’s novel that’s like nothing ever seen before.
