Two Nine-Decade-Old Anime Films Discovered

Yoshiro Irie, a researcher at Tokyo's National Film Center, has announced that two of the oldest Japanese animated films were discovered in an antique shop in Osaka in central Japan. In 1917, anime pioneer Junichi Kouchi released the two-minute "Nakamura Katana" silent short about a samurai's foolish purchase of a dull-edged sword. Fellow animator Seitaro Kitayama released "Urashima Taro," an adaptation of a folk tale about a fisherman traveling to an underwater world on a turtle, in 1918. These films came soon after Oten Shimokawa's 1917 "Imokawa Mukozo the Doorman," which is considered the oldest commercially released anime film. Irie noted that these films relied heavily on gags and the novelty of moving pictures.

Traduzindo: pesquisadores da Tokyo's National Film Center encontram duas animações feitas no Japão na década de 10 do século passado. Os anos exatos são 1917 e 1918. Interessante descoberta. Eu - pelo menos - gostaria de saber qual exatamente foi a primeria animação no mundo. Veja a nota original do ANN.
