TOKYO, Japan, March 16, 2007 – Digital Meme, the premier
publisher of digitized vintage anime and classic Japanese
films, today posted an online preview of its much talked-about
upcoming release, “Japanese Anime Classic Collection.”

Yamamoto’s 1929 “Nihonichi Momotaro” (“Momotaro
the Undefeated”), narrated by famed benshi Midori Sawato,
brings to life the ancient Japanese myth surrounding the adventures
of the boy born from a peach.
Murata’s 1933 “Norakuro Nitoh Hei-Kyoren no Maki”
(“Private 2nd Class Norakuro”), based on Suiho
Tagawa’s classic character Norakuro, offers unusual
insights into the experience of a soldier.
Other clips in the preview come from Seo’s “Issunboshi
Chibisuke Monogatari” (“Tiny Chibisuke’s
Big Adventure”) and the early talkie “Dobutsu
Mura no Dai Sodo” (“The Animal Village in Trouble”).
