First, I thought it started in 1917. then it was 1914. Does anybody know when is the anime's 100th anniversary?
Edit: I don't know when is/was the 100th year of anime. I don't know if we passed it. I am confused.

The earliest known piece of animation produced in Japan is Katsudō Shashin, a 3-second looping animation stenciled directly onto film by an unknown individual sometime between 1907 and 1911.

I thought the first anime was "The Tale of the White Serpent" which was made 10 years after Toei was founded (1948). Astro Boy came out 5 years after Toei's first anime.

Given that the Anime art style was first created in France, and then the Japaneses discovered it and started using it in there shows, how do you want to define it? Do we define it as from the French invention of it, or from the point that the Japaneses started using it?

Before that there was Momotarō no Umiwashi from 1943 and Momotarō: Umi no Shinpei from 1945.

Very Accurate and Detailed (More like a college course ) Story / 1917 is most agreed on though there is one maybe 1915 / 1905 /

It's sometimes considered the first modern anime. The earlier examples are "ancestral" anime.

animenewsnetwork.cc/news/2005-08-07/oldest-anime-found
animenewsnetwork.cc/news/2008-03-27/two-90-year-old-anime-films-discovered mentions some of the earliest anime that are at least 1-2 minutes long.

If you manage to find an intact version (no changes or restorations were made), by US copyright laws they are now public domain. That means you can legally fansub them. However, that's only for the original version. Restored versions will have a 95-year copyright term here.

1917 for Japan, however animation has been going on close to 200 years now, then before that there were shadow puppets, wheels, etc, before the invention of devices that did all this work for a person.
