A Brief History of Anime

By Vadim Newquist Jul 10, 2014

3 of 15

Now let’s jump to the 1950s, which saw the formation of Toei Animation, a company that would become one of the great producers of Anime and Japanese entertainment of all sorts (and still thrives to this day). Their early crowning achievement was 1958’s Hakujaden (The Tale of the White Serpent), the very first Japanese all color feature film. The film had much in common with Disney animated blockbusters of the time, complete with musical numbers and talking animal sidekicks.
