Podcast – #16 ‘At The Beginning’

Hi Everyone,

In this episode Lewis and I go back to the dawn of the modern anime industry with reviews of Toei animations’ first and fourth feature films Hakujaden and Anju to Zushio Maru. A very interesting period of Japanese animation that is retold in fascinating detail in Jonathan Clements’ exceelent book Anime: A History.
