ROYAL SPACE FORCE: 25th ANNIVERSARY FANZINE
February 19, 1987: a director on his first trip to America arrives at the famous Chinese Theater in Los Angeles—the place where Star Wars had opened a decade earlier. He's there because tonight, the theater will show his own science fiction film. In 1983, he had been a student who made "Daicon IV," an amateur work shot with an 8mm camera. Just two years later, his proposal for an ambitious 35mm original movie was green lit with the largest budget in industry history. This evening the finished movie is about to get a Hollywood premiere—and at age 24, he is the youngest person ever to write and direct an anime feature film. His name is Hiroyuki Yamaga, and his studio, built around his old college friends, is called GAINAX. This fanzine, RSF 25, is the story behind that film—Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise...just re-released on DVD and Blu-ray.
