I'm new to this forum, so let me quickly introduce myself first...
I'm a film student from Brussels, Belgium and I'm currently working on a short film about an English woman who becomes obsessed by Japanese pop-culture. Besides this project, I'm also working on a thesis about 'Transformations in Japanese animation'
For this, I'm looking for as many anime movies and series as possible that feature some sort of 'transformation'. This can be any kind of transformation: From evolving Pokémon to the shape-shifting Forest Spirit in Mononoke Hime, the 'mecha' in Evangelion not being 'real' mecha and sort of leading their own life (I saw the series years ago, so I have to watch it again to really remember what happened) (and of course materialisation), Van growing wings in Escaflowne, and the end of Akira.
So which other ones do you know of that could be interesting to study?
This can be very well known things or even more obscure ones...
Thanks a lot in advance!
