Today Hideo Kojima and his staff at Kojima Productions released the first episode of the popular developer’s new videocast “Hideo Tube.

This episode doesn’t much focus on games, even if we can probably glimpse possible source of inspiration for Kojima-san, as it’s dedicated to his top ten films of 2015.

Guest in the show is novelist Kenji Yano. Unsurprisingly, Kojima-san’s favorite is Mad Max: Fury Road, which he has showered with praise on Twitter since its release.

Here’s Kojima-san and Yano-san’s full top 10:

  1. Mad Max: Fury Road
  2. Whiplash
  3. Kingsman: the Secret Service
  4. Locke
  5. Nightcrawler
  6. Shaun the Sheep the Movie
  7. The Intern
  8. Straight Outta Compton
  9. Fires on the Plain
  10. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

You can check out the episode below, even if for now it’s only in Japanese. Producer Ken-Ichiro Imaizumi encouraged fans to provide translations via YouTube’s new fan translation feature. If you have good command of Japanese, this is your chance to help with Kojima-san’s return.
