ANIME LOST & FOUND

Here in the U.S., the fine folks over at The Right Stuff are looking for several lost episodes (in 16mm) of the original 1963 ASTRO BOY series – to complete their restoration of the series for DVD. A full list of missing titles is posted on FPS.firstanime.jpgMeanwhile in Japan, researchers have found an ancient piece of anime:

The 35-millimeter, celluloid animation film consists of 50 frames stuck together with paste. It depicts a boy in a sailor suit who writes Chinese characters, “katsudo shashin” (moving picture), takes off his hat and gives a salute.

The Japanese historians believe this film strip to be over 100 years old! Read the full news report here.(Thanks to Charles Brubaker for the link)
