Animation's 100th Anniversary.

Animation had it's 100th anniversary on the 17th of this month.

Sorry this is a little late, have been delayed in things lately.

We owe a thank you of massive proportions to the pioneer of animation: Émile Cohl. 100 years ago it took Cohl from February 1908 to May or June 1908 to create the very first animated film: "Fantasmagorie".

Made up from 700 double-exposed drawings, Fantasmagorie had a running time of almost 2 minutes. The film's title is a reference to the "fantasmograph", a mid-Nineteenth Century variant of the magic lantern that projected ghostly images that floated across the walls.

Émile Cohl

My hat is off to Émile Cohl, along with all the other pioneers of animation, without them we probably would not have such amazing animated shows:

The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

Death Note

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Howl's Moving Castle

Lucky Star

Or sweet 2D girls as these ^^:

Click on any of the pictures for full res versions, I don't have the sources unfortunately. Also, I recently found a ton of Miku pics on Wakachan, is anyone interested in a Miku pic post? :p

Wow, animation's 100th anniversary huh? That's really cool. Also, a nice assortment of pics and videos. I just started watching Death Note today. From the four episodes that I have seen it looks like a wonderful show.

Katie: Thanks! Death Note is quite excellent. I loved it as a change from the typical bubbly school life type of anime I like to watch. xD I tend to like it all, but I think we could use a few more anime that are similar to Death Note in design and quality.
