According to Melt-Banana...

This is good. I'm not exactly sure what it is. Summer Wars. Some sort of animated movie? The artwork itself is excellent; the characters look a lot like people I actually know. Just a tidbit from Melt-Banana's MySpace blog.

Tomorrow night, I'll be seeing them live in concert at Shibuya's O-Nest, where I saw them open for Red Krayola a few years ago. The crowd for that show was a bit more subdued than the one at the Shin-Okubo show in 2007. Has it really been almost two years since last I saw them?

Yep, Summer Wars is a movie. The character designs are by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, who is totally amazing. That's why they look so good.
