All about him
Kumo no you ni, Kaze
no you ni ("Kumokaze" for short) is very often mistaken for a Miyazaki
or Studio Ghibli film due to the similarities between the styles of Katsuya
Kondou, the character designer and animation director for Kumokaze,
and the style of Miyazaki's works. Some people have commented that the main
character, Ginga, looks like an Asian Kiki.
Kumokaze, however, was produced by Studio Pierrot, the animation
studio famous for such series as Kimagure Orange Road.
The story is set in ancient
China, and follows the adventures of Ginga as she goes from being a
simple country girl to being a concubine of the Emperor. The movie is based
on the novel Koukyuu Shousetsu by Ken'ichi SAKEMI.
