This chapter focuses on the chronological development of Japanese animation from the early twentieth century and the subsequent industrialization of the medium during the Second World War. It suggests that the military's ongoing and enthusiastic support of the animation medium from the 1930s to the early 1940s could be regarded as the impetus for the first industrial development of Japanese animation. It also highlights the production of two wartime feature animated films, Momotar Kitarō no umiwashi (1943) and Momotar Kitarō umi no shinpei (1945).

Keywords:   Japanese animation, industrialization, Second World War, military, Momotar Kitarō no umiwashi, Momotar Kitarō umi no shinpei
