News: The Girl Who Leapt Through Time director wins his fourth Animation of the Year award in Japan Academy Prize

Mamoru Hosoda can add another award to his already-groaning shelf, beside his 2007, 2010 and 2013 Animation of the Year wins for The Girl Who Leapt Through TimeSummer Wars, and Wolf Children. At the Japan Academy Prize ceremony held in Tokyo on March 4th, Hosoda’s latest film The Boy and the Beast proved that it warmed hearts with the tale of a bond between a bear and boy lost in space-time.

 Hosoda’s film was up beside nominations for Keiichi Hara’s Miss Hokusai, Tatsuyuki Nagai’s Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’, and Takahiko Kyōgoku’s Love Live! The School Idol Movie. But The Boy and the Beast won out to take home the 39th Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year, and it could get yet another top prize this year, as it’s also up for the 2016 Tokyo Anime Award Festival’s Anime of the Year award.
