Anime Tamago Introduces 2016 Sponsored Shorts

Project formerly known as Anime Mirai trains young animators working on shorts

Anime Mirai was launched in 2010 by the Japanese Animation Creators Association (JAniCA) with 214.5 million yen from the Japanese government's Agency for Cultural Affairs to foster the talent of young animators through on-the-job training by annually funding the production of shorts such as Trigger's 2013 Little Witch Academia and Death Parade predecessor Death Billiard.  


After AniCA announced that they will no longer be running the initiative, Association of Japanese Animations (AJA) took over for the 2015 showcase. Then, for the 2016 program, the AJA has renamed the Agency for Cultural Affairs sponsored showcase Anime Tamago. Visuals for the four selected works, previously announced in June, have now been revealed.
