Netflix has gradually become an oasis of animation and anime. The company promised for some time that it would introduce Japanese animated series in its programming and has fulfilled it, in Spain alone you can enjoy more than 100 titles among which are cult productions such as Akira or Evangelion.
In this line the streaming company has launched since last August 5 a documentary called ‘Enter the Anime’ that in just one hour delves into the beginnings of the enormous culture and evolution of the Japanese animation industry in a masterful way.
The documentary is presented by Tania Nolan, who explores the characteristics that have made animation a global phenomenon with countless followers worldwide. It not only uses the most relevant works in the industry, but also analyses original projects by Netflix such as Castlevania, Aggretsuko and Kengan Ashura, among others. And, headed by these titles, Nolan also shows us how Netflix is currently shaping the industry; or at least, what its goals and approaches are for the coming years.
Enter the Anime’ also features several interviews with prominent industry personalities such as Kozo Morishita (Saint Seiya), Yoko Takahashi (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Aramaki (Fullmetal Alchemist) who with their experience help to understand the boom and the origin of this visual phenomenon.
A great project that will surely inspire you to continue creating. We share the trailer with you.
