A trio of Tekkonkinkreet treats

The Tekkonkinkreet anime made its North American home video debut earlier this week, and we decided to celebrate with three bits of Tekkon goodness. First up: an image gallery featuring movie stills, original background art (including pre-production images) and even reference photos from director Michael Arias. Unless you happen to hang around Studio 4°C, you’ve probably never seen some of these images before.

Second is an interview we conducted with Michael Arias, where he talks about the making of the movie, anime distribution in North America, and why he prefers dubs to subtitles.

Finally, we have a music video set to the Shinichi Osawa remix of Plaid’s “White Dream,” from the Tekkonkinkreet soundtrack remix CD. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, then you can consider it a teaser of its particular style. (Actually, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, stop what you’re doing and watch it on the biggest screen you can. We’ll still be here when you get back.)
