Yoshiaki Kawajiri: The Running Man

This short animated film – The Running Man  –  is from director Yoshiaki Kawajiri; he was also the screenwriter, character designer and animation director! Part of a collection of three short films called Meikyû monogatari (Neo Tokyo) it was released in 1987, and is typical of the gritty ultra-violent Animes that were released in the late 80’s and early 90’s. The collection is no longer available on DVD, but the others films are also worth watching if you can find them.
