Directed by Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time), and brought to life by renowned animation studio MADHOUSE, Summer Wars is the story of an ordinary family going to extraordinary lengths to avert the impending cyber apocalypse! The Summer Wars: Material Book gives a detailed, behind-the-scenes look at the development artwork that went into this award-winning film! Inside you’ll find character profiles, background designs, rough sketches, and an exclusive interview with the film’s director.

While we are unfortunately not allowed to show you any preview pages or images from this book, because of our agreement with the licensor, we do want to say that we think Summer Wars: Material Book turned out phenomenally well, and fans of the movie will really enjoy this peek behind the scenes. In particular, this book is full of beautiful environment drawings and background paintings, in addition to all of the great character and design work. The Jinnouchi family estate feels very real, very beautifully conceived, and we’re happy to be able to bring such a high-quality project to North American fans.
