With the booming use of computer generated images or special effects (CGI) taking over the old way of using miniatures, Hideaki Anno (Evangelion, Gunbuster) and Shinji Higuchi (Lorelei, Japan Sinks) asks for help in preserving Japan’s tokusatsu traditions.
According to a report, entitled “An Investigative Report regarding Japanese Tokusatsu,” as a part of Cultural Affairs Agency’s Media Arts Information Hub and Consortium Building Enterprise policy, tokusatsu traditions is now on the verge of dying and its related artifacts endangered, if not lost already.
In organizing their successful tokusatsu exhibit last 2012, Anno and Higuchi came to discover that due to the use of CGI in a tokusatsu film or television series, the use of miniatures, which took years and decade to polish, is getting forgotten. In addition, props used in these shows, after it ended, doesn't have any kind of proper storage facility to house and protect them.
Hideaki Anno begged,
“Please help. The tokusatsu technology system is about to end. A contents industry that Japan boasts to the world is about to disappear. […] It doesn’t matter if it’s the national government, local body, legal entity, or a corporation [that steps in to help]. Please help tokusatsu, as it helped inspire us and taught us so much. Please. Please help as soon as possible especially regarding the preservation of miniatures [and other props.]”

Tokusatsu greatly influenced Hideaki Anno's hit anime series Evangelion. Along with Hayao Miyazaki, and Higuchi as the director, they created Giant God Warrior Appears In Tokyo, a short tokusatsu film shown at Anno's Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo.

A PokéBall is the most important item to a Pokémon trainer. As seen in all Pokemon related media, a PokéBall can store one Pokemon at a time. But, have you ever wondered what is it inside a PokéBall?
Here's an interesting infographic on an artist's take on as to what happens to Pokémon once they’re inside the PokéBall:
QUOTED FROM THE MOTOVO BLOG:
Given the amount of time they spend cooped up inside a PokéBall, we have to imagine they’d want some amenities customized to their particular needs:
- A shower — because battling is dirty work, and they’ll want to get cleaned up after getting sweaty from fighting
- A television — for watching battles in progress so they’re up-to-speed when called into action
- A bed — Pokémon may get healed at Pokémon Centers, but they still need to sleep
- A treadmill and workout equipment — for staying in tip-top physical condition
- A professional Poké-masseuse — for working out the kinks and aches that come with constantly battling opponents
- A training room and practice dummies — so they can keep their attacks and strategies honed
- A hot tub — for chilling with other Pokémon after a long week of fighting
- Pictures of their trainer — Pokémon suffer from a sort of Stockholm syndrome, where they’re extremely loyal to the person who takes them captive
Do you want to customize your Pokémon's PokéBall to make them comfortable inside while waiting for the next gym battle? Contact Motovo now and they'll get the job done as soon as possible, of course for such an affordable price!
