Book Review: ももへの手紙 Art & Animation

ももへの手紙 Art&Animation (A Letter to Momo)


A Letter to Momo (ももへの手紙) is a 2011 Japanese anime film directed by Hiroyuki Okiura.

This is the concept artbook for the film. It's a 112-page paperback.

Collected within are character designs, background paintings and their reference photos, animation stills, storyboards and a few frame-by-frame animation boards. There's plenty of text and at the back are 30 pages of interviews with the staff on the art direction.

The character designs are of the main characters and a few town people. The story happens on an island, which is pretty suburban, very typical of most Japanese anime films with the town houses, streets. Looking at them feels a bit familiar.

If you like the film and know Japanese, you'll probably enjoy this book more.
