Jirou dreams of flying and designing beautiful airplanes, inspired by the famous Italian aeronautical designer Caproni. Nearsighted from a young age and thus unable to become a pilot, Jirou joins the aircraft division of a major Japanese engineering company in 1927. His genius is soon recognized, and he grows to become one of the world's most accomplished airplane designers.

Key historical events deeply affected the course of Jirou's life, including the great Kanto earthquake of 1923, the Great Depression, the tuberculosis epidemic, and Japan's plunge into war. He meets and falls in 

love with Naoko, grows and cherishes his friendship with his colleague Honjou, and innovates tremendously, leading the aviation world into the future. (Source: Venice International

    I'm not huge into anime, but I loved Spirited Away, and also enjoyed Arrietty. I've seen some of his others I don't remember as well. I can't wait to see this one!

    Excited to attend my first meetup with this group! Depending where I am on Sunday, it's possible I can give a ride to anyone from about San Mateo and up on the peninsula (I live in Half Moon Bay).
