A Look Inside Hideaki Anno's Tokusatsu Exhibit - Image Gallery (90+ Images) [via Crunchyroll]

"Hideaki Anno's Tokusatsu Museum" opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo this week, with the tokusatsu fanboy turned Evangelion creator curating a look at the artifacts from Japan's great special effect driven works such as Godzilla, Ultraman and Gamera.
The event also features Studio Ghibli's new live-action short God Warrior Attacks Tokyo,in which a God Warrior from Hayao Miyazaki's NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind attacks the capital. The piece about a liiving nuclear weapon that destroyed civilization in NausicaƤ attacking the metropolis is also informed by concern with nuclear energy.
Evangelion creator Hideaki Anno's career has deep ties with the works of Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. Hideaki Anno worked as an animator for Studio Ghibli forerunner Topcraft on Miyazaki's NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind.  Anno impressed the crew so much that Toshio Suzuki has said that there was talk of making the ecological epic a trilogy with Anno directing the middle feature.
