Anime Mirai (“the future of animation”) is a collective project from four Japanese production studios selected by the Japan Animation Creators Association (JAniCA) under the patronage of the Agency for Cultural Affairs for the purpose of training young animators on-the-job.
In Juju the Weightless Dugong (by Hiroshi Kawamata), a workaholic father repeatedly breaks the promise to take his 5-year-old daughter to the sea.
In Pretending not to See (by Shinpei Miyashita) a 6th grader learns that bullying other kids is as bad as letting it happen.
In Li’l Spider Girl (by Toshihisa Kaiya) an antiquarian meets with a scared, eight-legged spider girl…and she’s the sweetest thing in the world… or not?
In Buta (by Kazuhide Tomonaga) a broke swordsman-for-hire accepts a job to pay the tavern’s bill, only to find himself involved with a pirate ship, a young kid with a map and a mad scientist.
We heartily recommend you checking this line-up from some of the best young talent Japan has to offer!
