Tadanari Okamoto 3-DVD set

After many years of waiting, a DVD set of the complete works of Tadanari Okamoto is at last slated for release in Japan. Okamoto is undoubtedly one of the most important Japanese independent animators, so the absence of a DVD set of his works has been conspicuous. Koji Yamamura, who admits to being deeply influenced by the great independent, confirmed in his latest blog post (about the Tadanari Okamoto exhibit on display at the Hida International Animation Festival of Folktales and Fables) that the DVD set is scheduled for release next March. I don't know who will be releasing it, as I haven't been able to find any other information. For anyone unfamiliar with Tadanari Okamoto's work, a few of his best films can be viewed on Crunchyroll.
