Pictures of Yukio is about three university students who become obsessed with ideas about Mishima brought on by a reflection/shadow of the face of Mishima on the side of a building which they find out used to be the place where Mishima studied in elementary school (maybe also junior and high school). One of them disappears without trace until he reappears as a person with a bizarre manifesto based on the idea of taking the world back to analogue ways. The dénouement recalls Mishima’s own speech that he gave to the Jietai military academy shortly before his suicide.
