“Light”: A Fandub of Naoki Urasawa’s 20th Century Boys
A dramatic piece I’ve been working on for a while. This is from 20th Century Boys, a fantastic manga by Naoki Urasawa. It’s taken from the fourth volume, but I feel that it works as a stand-alone piece.
For those who are unfamiliar with 20th Century Boys, this takes place in a world that is slowly being taken over by an enigmatic cult leader called “The Friend.” In this particular scene, a man in Thailand named Shogun travels to an isolated temple to confront a deranged manager of a Friend-run factory that manufactures “Rainbow Kid,” a hallucinogenic drug. Through the effects of the drug, Shogun reflects on his not so happy life and the fears that he had to confront along the way.
Two chapters were combined for this video, the beginning of “Rainbow Kid” and the entire chapter of “Light.”
