Kuvshinov’s most recent work in Japan was the character designs for Keiichi Hara’s anime feature film Birthday Wonderland released in April 2019. He says, “The reason why I started loving Japanese anime was Mamoru Oshii’s ‘Ghost in The Shell’ that I saw when I was 6. I am so honored to participate in a new series in the franchise that has been so important to me. I am drawing the designs of Motoko and others with the love and respect for ‘Ghost in The Shell’ in my heart.”
