Young Animator Training Project (2011)


In a follow up to the 2010 Project, four anime works have each received 38 million yen (about US$470,000) from the "2011 Young Animator Training Project." Just like in 2010, the animation labor group received 214.5 million yen (US$2.65 million) from the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs, and it distributed most of those funds to studios who train young animators on-the-job.

The four anime in this project (from left to right) are:
Buta - MAL
Puka Puka Juju - MAL
Shiranpuri - MAL
Wasurenagumo - MAL

I love those images about Buta, it seems like they are taking animal stories to a new level.

Buta was fun. Wasuregumo was interesting.

To be honest the only reason I made this thread was to talk about Wasuregumo:

Spoiler for Wasuregumo:

Wasurenagumo was interesting, to say the least. The tale of a seller of historical books, a young girl, and the ancient evil unleashed when the seal on an old book is broken.

Trust me on this, If you have not seen this show yet, do NOT be tempted to read what's under the spoiler tags.



Spoiler for Spider girl, spider girl, does whatever a spider can - no that doesn't rhyme..:

Seriously. Don't read the spoilers, just watch the show, it's excellent.
Arachnophobes need not apply...

I still haven't watched Buta, but Wasurenagumo is just phenomenal, like a perfect short "student film". A story told well and without having to worry about two different kinds of commercial constraints: "making money" (of course), but also "finding an audience" (this is more subtle). This is a little vignette that'd probably fail at the former and has no natural audience (can't say more without spoilers), but it's all the better off for it.

Well worth your 25 minutes or so, I look forward to future creations from all of the staff involved.

Puka Puka Juju was just released. I thought it was a really heartwarming short (which was definitely needed after Wasurenagumo...). It was very good.

Just watched Shiranpuri (Minding My Own Business): a very simply story about the need to stand up for friends being bullied. A message that it perhaps not as much heeded as it should be. Amazing how such simple stories can end up being so emotionally engaging. Perhaps it's because of the sheer honesty in their storytelling? Whatever it was, it was incredibly enjoyable to watch Shiranpuri.

Yeah Shiranpuri was good, although Wasuregumo is still my favourite of the four, the other two I didn't care about.

I think the authenticity of having real kids in the cast helps with the emotional engagement a great deal.

I agree this was quite good. Simple and straightforward, but a message that does need to be repeated often enough so that it's hard for people to ignore it.

Having seen all four I have to say that Wasurenagumo was by far and above my favourite.

Buta was good fun, and quite easy to see how you could spin a series off the characters.
Puka Puka Juji was heartwarmingly sweet, really.

Shiranpuri came across as one of those very worthy and moral shows you'd stick on in early tea-time kids' programming. Still good, and would definitely get its message across, and the animation style suited it.

Wasurenagumo clinches it for me though because of the ending, which I genuinely didn't see coming.

Kudos to the Japanese government for encouraging young talent. Does anyone know if there's a 2012 project?

There is. The titles and studios have been announced last month. They'll be done by GONZO (lol), Trigger, Pierrot and MADHOUSE.
