Things Get Goofy In Japanese Slacker Comedy I'LL GIVE IT MY ALL TOMORROW
But 2013 is different for Fukuda. 2013 is the year of no television. Instead he's made three features, two of which have already been heavily covered in these pages. Up first was Kid's Police, the big screen outing of the cult hit television series which he also had a hand in writing and directing. Second? That would be the big screen version of cult manga Hentai Kamen. Third? The upcoming adaptation of another manga - though this one is somewhat more respectable - titled I'll Give It My All Tomorrow.
Though ti won't generate the same sort of cult buzz that Kid's Police and Hentai Kamen will, I'll Give It My All Tomorrow is Fukuda's chance to show he can produce something engaging while moving a little bit more to the mainstream and if the freshly released trailer is any indication he has done exactly that. It seems safe to say that we're seeing the emergence of a significant new talent here.Shizuo is a no-good 40 year old single father living with his high school daughter and his father. One day he suddenly decides to quit his stable job in order to become a comic (manga) writer. He starts presenting his works to a comic magazine publisher. After piles of rejections, the eccentric middle-aged Shizuo starts to lose confidence of ever getting his work published, however with the support of his daughter and close friends, he finally starts to see the light of success...
Take a look at the trailer below.
