Awazu is a Japanese director, screenwriter, producer and editor. After graduation at the Achi University for Applied Arts and Music, he got a job in the production house Malin Post Productions as an artist for visual effects.

It is an homage to the Kaiju genre of films from the 1950’s and 1960’s but done in a contemporary style and in the anime version. Afterwards, he continued to work on video games and films as an independent artist. His second film is the medium-length anime Puranzetto (Planzet, 2010).
