GODZILLA MINUS ONE Director Takashi Yamazaki’s next film could be BAREFOOT GEN

It seems that the director of Godzilla minus one, Takashi Yamazaki, has found his next film project. It has been reported that she is looking to direct an adaptation of the manga Barefoot Gen.

This information comes from the anime producer, film professor, and founder of Gainax Studios Toshio Okada, shared a video for his followers. While talking about the impact of Godzilla minus onetalked about Yamazaki’s career and said that the director’s next film will probably serve as an adaptation Barefoot Gen.

This has not been confirmed by Yamazaki, but if true it would be a great project for the director to undertake!

Barefoot Gen is a heartbreaking and heartwarming manga series created by Keiji Nakazawadepicting the life of General Nakaoka, a young boy living in Hiroshima during World War II.

The story begins with Gen and his family dealing with the daily hardships of war, including food shortages and air raids. Their lives change irrevocably when the atomic bomb is dropped on Hiroshima, resulting in the deaths of Gen’s father, sister, and younger brother.

As one of the survivors, Gen witnesses the terrible aftermath of the bombing, struggling with loss, radiation sickness, and the destruction of his city.

The manga tells a powerful story and portrays the resilience and hope of the human spirit amidst unimaginable devastation.

The manga description reads: “This harrowing story of Hiroshima was one of the original Japanese manga series. New and unabridged, this is an entirely new translation of the author’s first-person experiences of Hiroshima and its aftermath, it is a reminder of the suffering that war brings to innocent people.

“His emotions and experiences speak to children and adults everywhere. The first volume of this ten-part series details the events preceding and immediately following the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.”

I hope the news that Yamazaki is directing the film is true because he is the perfect director and will develop it into a beautiful and heartbreaking film.

There is an anime film adaptation of this story directed by Mori Masaki and published in 1983.
