Yoshiyuki Sadamoto’s “Summer Wars” Character Designs

summer_warsSummer Wars, a movie by director Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time) with character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto that will be in theatres in Japan on August 1st, has some of his designs appearing in the Web Animation Magazine.

Although this doesn’t really have anything to do with Evangelion, it’s still pretty cool to see some of Sadamoto’s artwork. Sadamoto, who also did the Character Designs for “The Girl Who Leapt Through Time“, will be rejoining much of the same cast who produced that movie, along with Madhouse Studios. After seeing the HD teaser and the trailer, it reminds me a lot of Girl Who Leapt Through Time, which is a good thing.
