On this episode we are stepping somewhat outside the realm of anime discussion with an episode focusing on WORLDWIDE animation awareness.
As we have stated in the past we here at Planet Tyro are fans of animation in itâ€™s entirety not just Japanese animation alone and as such I wanted to address a few hot topics / related emails we have come across on such topic
As mentioned on the podcast I was a bit embarrassed to realise when a listen emailed us in asking do we know anything about international Animation Day we all drew a complete blank
So to that end on this episode we are joined once again by our friendly returning guest KIMONO JOE who chimes in on the matter at hand
Letâ€™s not forget we got a complete series review for the underrated WAKFU animated series

*Editors Note: You know what, after editing this episode I kinda feel like I spent a little too much time on Americaâ€™s justified self-promotion with their animation projects opposed to the IAFAâ€™s lack there of on a whole.
Well for the sake of clarity I just want to empathize my major gripe with animation awareness at this point has more to do with the IAFAâ€™s every country fends for themselves publicity method rather than having a somewhat neutral international platform to promote animation from all corners of the globe in a central event. Which is NOT what the Annie awards are.
I mean seriously we should not all rely on America to solely do promotion for every other country in the world in terms of publicity / promotion â€“ they would clearly have their own self interests and many good / unknown shows will go unnoticed. Yes, admittedly financially they are certainly in a better position to do so opposed to other countries but I would think it would actually be the IAFAâ€™s job to promote international titles equally on a quality basis â€“ that is my idea of worldwide animation awareness.
Alas, I got caught up in talking about the 2 major powerhouses againâ€¦.them being being America / Japanâ€¦.anyhow we have some more worldly reviews coming soon so stay tuned
