Info for citation of Momotarō animated film

1 Nov


Attached is the pamphlet from the DVD anthology in which “Momotarō’s Sea Eagle” was released. It tells the director and year. The collection itself, The Roots of Japanese Anime until the End of WWII, was released by Zakka Films in 2009.

I haven’t found THIS Momotarō on grey market video channels, but you might…The later full-length film, Momotarō’s Divine Sea Warriors, is available several places, including here. The DVD is a Leavey on 4H reserve, with the call number LVYDVD 3291.

If you are writing on the animé, I do strongly advise looking at it again (it is only 37 min). This will help you to attend to the details and specific formal elements of the film, and thus strengthen your analysis of the narrative. I also have copies for loan–email me directly.
