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.
