Minoru Kawasaki (film director)
Kawasaki began his career with some self-financed films, including Iko the Earth Patrol Girl, and manga to live action adaptions, before working on Ultraman Tiga. He had his first hit with Calamari Wrestler, a film about a wrestler who becomes a large squid. He followed this up with Executive Koala, featuring a koala office worker who may have murdered his wife, Kabuto-O Beetle, another wrestling movie, this time with a giant stag beetle. In 2006, he released Everyone But Japan Sinks (a parody of Japan Sinks) and Crab Goalkeeper, a movie Kawasaki describes as being like Forrest Gump.
