The annual Japan Anime Collaboration (or Anikorabo) Market is set to take place on October 15th - 18th at the Akihabara UDX. This year's special guests include the animators Toyoo Ashida, Atsuko Watanabe, and Kazuko Tadano, a character designer and animation director on Sailor Moon! These three animators almost represent three very different generations of animation, and the theme this year is "40 years of Character Design". We imagine that they would have a lot to say, and we hope that Kazuko could say a few words about Sailor Moon's triumphant return! The market is aimed at recruiting both amateur and professional artists for careers in anime production. There will also be lots of seminars and workshops for attendees. The most interesting part of this market, is the "Challenge Audition" where professionals and amateurs sumbit proposals and ideas for new anime products or businesses. The winner will get their product manufactured. For a list of works that may be elaborated on for this challenge, check them out here!
