DEN-NOH COIL
A juvenile sci-fi animation written and directed by Mitsuo Iso, a highly renowned animator who proved his skills in works such as “Ghost in the Shell,” “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” and “RahXephon.” “Den-noh Coil” is based in a suburban town in the near future, where children meet various mysterious creatures in cyberspace through their AR (augmented reality) glasses.

In Japan, the show was broadcasted on NHK Educational TV (NHK E Tele) in 2007. In June 2016, it was released on Blu-ray and DVD in North America. The series is popular across the globe.

Other great artists involved in the sakuga (key frame animation) of “Den-noh Coil” include chief animation director Toshiyuki Inoue, Takeshi Honda, Yoshimi Itazu, Kiyotaka Oshiyama, Takashi Mukoda, Katsuya Kondo, Masashi Ando, Kenichi Yoshida, Tadashi Hiramatsu, Honma Kaichi (Satoko Morikawa), Ei Inoue, Koichi Arai, Takaaki Yamashita, Nobutake Ito, Kazuchika Kise, Hiroyuki Aoyama, Chikashi Kubota, and many others.
