Anime Site Collaboration Project: Anime Production Studios Gaining Global Attention and Paving the Way to the Future

Anime Site Collaboration Project: Anime Production Studios Gaining Global Attention and Paving the Way to the Future

Tokyo Otaku Mode, which continues to work to spread Japanese pop culture, such as anime, throughout the world under the slogan, “Making the world happy with otaku culture!” has collaborated with anime news sites around the world to launch a new interview project.

Japanese anime, thanks to the flourishment of streaming sites, is more popular now than it has ever been before. Because of that, we have decided to interview directors and producers of anime studios that create works enjoyed by fans around the world and ask them about behind-the-scenes details, such as, “How do you come up with such wonderful ideas?” and, “What do you feel when you make anime?” We’ll also include photos and videos of the studio that are rarely revealed to the public.

This project is being done with the cooperation of anime news sites from around the world, such as Japan’s largest anime information site Anime!Anime!, Taiwan’s massive site Bahamut, Sumikai, Honey’s Anime, and more.
