Keishi Otomo is a film director and screenwriter. He is renowned in Japan for his genre-defying storytelling, human portrayal, and dynamic, wide-ranging visual expression. From the Epic Historical Taiga drama series, "Ryomaden" (2010), a poignant coming-of-age tale of an orphaned shogi (Japanese chess) master learning to connect with humanity "March Comes in Like a Lion" (2017) to the globally successful "Rurouni Kenshin" franchise, his works cross genres (from period pieces based on historical figures, dramas which delve into complex social issues, action, and mysteries) as well as being one of the few directors to attain both critical and commercial success in adapting famous Japanese manga series and novels.
