S1E33 - Propaganda, Clip Art & Astro Boy: History's First Anime

1 year ago

What was the first anime? Wait... what even IS anime? Join us as we dive into the depths of the very first forms of Japanese animation, from stop-motion clip art to WW2 Propaganda Films with lil baby animal soldier, until we finally reach touch on the OG, commonly recognized first true anime, Astro Boy. Or, as we came to discover, Astor Boynton. Pax still hasn't recovered from this one.
