The Description Images of the Characters in Satoshi Kon’s Work: The Shift from a Visual Image to an Image of Substance

Satoshi Kon is a talented feature animation director. He states that some characters see a mental image of an unstable protagonist as real in different situations.

However, Kon changed his style of expression from the effective use of a visible mental image to a drawing of the world in which the mental image was given substance.
