The “Kochi Anime Creator Holy Land Project,” which Kochi Shinkin Bank is working on in collaboration with Kochi Prefecture, Kochi City, Nankoku City, and Susaki City, will hold the “Anime Soul Summit” on November 9, 2022. This conference aims to appeal to various measures for the anime industry in Kochi Prefecture and to create collaborations with anime-related people inside and outside the prefecture.

The “Anime Soul Summit” will be held in November in Kochi City, Nankoku City, and Susaki City as a pre-event for the “Kochi Anime Creator Festival,” one of the development goals of the “Kochi Anime Creator Holy Land Project.” It will be held as part of the “Kochi Anime Creator Festival Project Zero.” On the event day, about 40 anime-related companies, including major publishers and anime-related people, will be invited to create connections between Kochi and anime-related companies and anime creators.

At the conference, “animation workers” will gather in Kochi and make efforts related to the “Tosa no Kuni Animation Concept,” which aims to create an animation industry, and “Kochi Debut! Challenge to feature-length animation production”.

In addition, we will introduce the “Kochi Digital Creative Lab Concept,” which will establish a facility in the central area of ‚Äč‚ÄčKochi City that will serve as a base for anime-related technology companies, support the establishment of two floors, and will also serve as a human resource development function within Kochi Prefecture.

In addition, there are exchanges between Kochi and anime creators, such as the “Kochi Anime Creator Award” that discovers and honors the raw talent of anime creators in Japan, and the virtual space “Anime Conference” that disseminates information on projects and interacts with anime creators and related companies. It also reports on the progress of efforts to promote. It looks like an event where you can see the forefront of Kochi’s anime industry.

The “Anime Spirits Summit” will be held at Golden Pacific on the 3rd floor of “Hotel Nikko Kochi Asahi Royal” from 11:30 on November 9.
