Peach Boy goes to War

Tomorrow I’m seeing a 1942 propaganda anime, Momotaro’s Sea Eagles, which transposes a traditional Japanese folk tale to the Pacific during World War II.  The movie, 37 minutes long, was released with English subtitles for the first time in the above early anime sample pack from Zakka Films.

A 74 minute sequel, Momotaro: Divine Warriors of the Sea, was released in 1945.  This was the first full-length animated feature out of Japan.  Some kindly soul has put it up on YouTube for all to enjoy:

PS: Sorry for the long absence dear fans!  I just finished the last of my summer classes and have been trying to make my part time job as full time as I can ever since…  Will try to get back on schedule now…
