Animation to Watch: Sawako Kabuki Playlist

Sawako Kabuki (冠木 佐和子, b. 1990) is an eccentric young animation artist in the tradition of Yōji Kuri.  Her work pushes the boundaries of comfortability by depicting female bodies masturbating, defecating, and even puking.  Her luridly coloured films are surreal and daring.  There is always a tongue in cheek sense of humour from fangirling over Shigeru Matsuzaki with a mutant hermaphrodite in the short-short Shigeru (しげる, 2014) to a girl making a peace sign selfie next to a butt hole in Anal Juke.   The shock value of her work has made her a perfect match for music video collaborations.  She has made music videos for Shinsuke Sugahara (菅原信介) and THE POTONE! 

Here is a playlist of works she has shared on YouTube (NSFW) – many with English subs:

Kabuki is a graduate of Tama Art University.  Learn more about her on her website, her blog, and or follow her @soramimicake.
