Messenger From the Sea

[Source:] Over the last few years an interesting trend has emerged in the world of Japanese animation. You can call it the rise of the indies, a wave of purely independent animators creating their own feature films and OVA releases at remarkably high quality, building a loyal cult of followers around the globe at the same time.

Makoto Shinkai is the most obvious example of this phenomenon, and probably the highest profile, but there are plenty of others as well. Among them, an animator who calls himself simply Nosferatu. Working largely in monochrome with his signature character, Non-Chan, Nosferatu has assembled an impressive body of work and will be releasing a half hour Non-Chan starring short titled The Messenger From The Sea next month. The first teaser for this has just come on the scene and it is rather tasty.
