A surprisingly touching story of Hideaki Anno's work on the Rebuild of Evangelion, "The Wind Rises", and "Shin Godzilla", all told in the loving style of his wife, Moyoco Anno's, "Insufficient Direction". It's funny and almost whimsical, while at the same time being a real heartfelt depiction of Hideaki Anno's long-running struggle with depression.

Strongly recommended if you want a peak behind the scenes of Studio Khara, or a very empathetic depiction of mental health.

The artwork is done in the style of Moyo Anno's manga/anime "Insufficient Direction", which I generally loved. I suppose it's not a visual masterpiece, but it's perfectly suited to the pseudo-children's tale it's framed as.
