    • Synopsis
    • Saekingdom portrays Kenzo SAEKI who is a musician, lyricist, essayist, producer, dentist… Kenzo Saeki has many faces, but he is above all an artist who has survived by refining the world of the “Otaku” (fanboy culture) and raising it to a higher level. For this he is known as a charismatic leader in the subculture world. The strength of this techno-boy, who seemed so transient at first, may show us the way to survive our difficult modern times.
      Utakata documents a woman named Usagi Nakamura, who is the writer, outspoken feminist and a 'shopholic'. She has a lot to say about the state of women in Japan including herself.
