An Arabian Anime Epic: ‘The Journey’ Trailer

by Tito W. James

The Journey is a Japanese/Saudi Arabian animated film co-produced by Toei Animation and Manga Productions directed by Shizuno Koubun. The film revolves around a potter named Aws who joins a battle to defend his home city.

As an avid lover of period piece adventure films The Journey appears to be right up my alley. I’m also thrilled by the medium of anime continuing to explore cultures and histories that aren’t exclusively Japanese. Anime fandom is so expansive and international that we could see an anime for every nation in the future.

The Journey will release in Japan on June 25th.
