Masaaki Yuasa Japan, 2013

Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Ping Pong

It comes out of the pages of one of the greatest comic writer living out there: Matsumoto Taiyo. It's exactly there what you expect from his typical angsty coming of age stories. Yuuasa indeed is a talented director, but as usual pushes too much on the character design weirdness when it comes to humans. Still Kaiba remains his masterpiece for properly balancing every component.
