This film festival is not just about screening anime films from the 1980s; it’s a unique opportunity for anime fans to interact with the very people who brought these films to life. We are thrilled to have master artist Yoshikazu Yasuhiko create the original poster, a testament to our commitment to anime fans. Our goal is to expand this experience from Nagoya to the rest of the country, Asia, and the world, offering a truly global platform for anime enthusiasts.

Comment from Yoshihide Kondo (General Producer): In 1980, at 25, I transferred from Shochiku’s film promotion department to the film production headquarters, which was my dream. Naturally, I thought I would be involved in producing a live-action movie, but the director said, “Shochiku will be distributing an animated movie called “Mobile Suit Gundam.” Please have the youngest person in charge of it.” It was.

I returned to the movie promotion department thanks to “Mobile Suit Gundam” (?). Seven years have passed since then, and I have mainly promoted Nippon Sunrise’s works, including the “Mobile Suit Gundam” trilogy, “Legendary Giant Ideon: Contact Chapter/Activation Chapter,” “Crusher Joe,” and even “Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack.” in charge. During that time, many other anime masterpieces were created by different companies.

Although some anime have incorporated CG, the central part is hand-drawn. It can be said that the 1980s was when “hand-drawn” animation technology reached its ultimate level. Please come to the theater and experience the ferocious energy of the creators that still exude from the screen even after several decades by collecting masterpieces of animated films from the 1980s that were mainly hand-drawn. I want to hold an anime film festival in Nagoya, in the center of Japan. The Domanka Anime Film Festival, which planned with this in mind, has finally opened.
