I think you are missing the point of this forum...
I wonder how many times this has happened.unless it golden era anime?
Golden Era Anime
Momotaro's Divine Sea Warriors, a 1945 propaganda flick which came out just a few months before Japan surrendered. Of particular note are the British officers in the final surrender scene depicted with horns suggesting "foreign devils".
The word "anime" as it is used now, didn't exist in the Golden Era.
In the 1930s, the terminology in Japanese for what is now animation was 線画--senga, line drawing.
Then in the '40s, the word 動画--doga, moving drawing--came into use.
In the '60s, they were called漫画映画--manga eiga, managa movies.
By the mid '60s, the word "animation" became commonly used among those in the flim industry, but it wasn't until the mid '70s that the wordアニメ--anime--as it is used now, became a common household word.
So, depending on what your view is of what's Golden era and what's vintage, "anime"s barely or not at all make it into the ranks in FL.
I stand corrected. Dōmo arigatōgozaimasu
Here's another early Japanese animated cartoon: Why Sea Water is Salty (1935)
We often discuss topics, especially movies and books, that are not of or about The Era. I see no reason that "Anime/Manga" cannot also be a topic for discussion.
