Blue Exorcist: The Movie

True to tradition, MCM London expo revealed day by day the great guests they had in store for us attendees to meet. One of the real exciting last minute high profile guests such as Blue Exorcist: The Movie’s director Atsushi Takahashi and producer Takamitsu Inoue. The anime was a roaring success in the UK and USA.

London MCM Expo was packed again this year and it was not a suprise with high profile guests such as Blue Exorcist: The Movie’s director Atsushi Takahashi and producer Takamitsu Inoue.

Takamitsu Inoue's career began at anime studio Production I.G, eventually he moved to Aniplex where he took part in the development of titles such as the famous Naruto series and recent horror novel adaptation Shiki. Following work as a producer for the popular Blue Exorcist TV series, Inoue most recent project is last December’s (2013) Blue Exorcist: The Movie.

Blue Exorcist: The Movie marks Atsushi Takahashi feature film debut. Starting out in charge of production of Nasu: Summer In Andalusia, Takahashi was also the assistant director on the acclaimed Studio ghibli anime movie Spirited Away. He has also worked in TV as assistant director of Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashiand Kemonodzume, before directing sci-fi racing show Rideback in 2009. 

I was able to catch up with Takahashi and Inoue to talk about the Blue Exorcist: The Movie , I even wore blue ! They said I should visit Harajuku in Japan that I would like it there for the fashion - I highly agree.
