Momotaro’s Divine Sea Warriors licensed by…Funimation?!

This is the first Japanese feature length cartoon ever made, a WWII propaganda film written and directed by Misuyo Seo that has to be seen to be believed. Apart from Momotaro himself, the Japanese navy is almost exclusively staffed by cutesy cartoon animals, and the allies are hilarious,…

Not a very good week

Not doin’ particularly well, my friends, though I’m not doing that bad either. The reason I’m not doing so well is that I haven’t gotten much work done on Dragonar…barely any. No motivation. Why?
