FEATURE: P.A.WORKS 15th Anniversary Exhibition at Tokyo Anime Center

From "True Teas" (2008) to the latest "Haruchika" and "Kuromukuro" (2016)

Tokyo Anime Center, located on the fourth floor of the Akhabara UDX building, is now holding a special exhibition to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Japanese animation studio P.A.Works. The admission-free event will run till January 11. 


The Toyama-based studio was established by ex-Production I.G producer Kenji Horikawa in November 2000 as Ecchu Doga Honpo, then changed its name to P.A.Works (Progressive Animation Works) two years later.Unlike most of Japanese anime studios, the company's main office is located in Nanto-city, Toyama Prefecture in the less-populated Hokuriku region, because the prefecture is the home town of Horikawa's partner. The company is well-known for its own original TV anime series set in the Hokuriku region, such as Hanasaku Iroha (Ishikawa) and Glasslip (Fukui).
