Yona Yona Penguin
Singapore broadcaster giant MediaCorp and leading Japanese animation company Madhouse Inc Monday announced a collaboration on a 13 million U.S. dollar computer-generated 3D anime feature film called Yona Yona Penguin.
The animation film will be directed by renowned Japanese animator Rintaro, who's made his mark in Japanese anime as the creator of Astro Boy.
Singapore's entry into billion dollar industry anime is this cutesy penguin story. I have to confess though, the name Madhouse did not struck me as the one will do cutesy, moe type of anime presentation.
Interesting industrial trend in anime, as it becomes more and more hybrid Japanese and something else now.
