The world of Japanese Animation or also know as anime is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Japan’s National Film Center, which is part of the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo has released many original anime cartoons online to mark the 100th anniversary of Japanese Animation.
As we approach this milestone, the Association of Japanese Animations (AJA) will be starting a project that will set the foundation to further support the creation of anime for the next 100 years. At Anime Expo this year, the Chairman of the project, Masuo Ueda (Chairman of Aniplex Inc.) and the Vice Chairman, Yasuo Miyakawa (President and CEO of SUNRISE Inc.) will be attending to explain the details of the project to American fans for the first time. Both Japanese and American guests will have a discussion about the future of anime. As part of the discussion we would also like to take questions and opinions from the fans.
