Default Executive Producer of Pokemon Speaks on Anime!

Executive Producer of Pokemon Speaks on Anime!
-04/05/07-


Masakazu Kubo, Executive Producer of the Pokemon TV Show and Movies.

The Chosun Ilbo, a Korean news outlet, has an article about the Tokyo International Anime Fair. One of the main focus of the article is on Masakazu Kubo, the executive producer of the Pokemon TV show and movies.

Chosun Ilbo: Anime Fans Convene in Tokyo to See What's Hot
Hours before the doors opened on Japan's largest exhibition devoted to anime, Masakazu Kubo was prowling through the Tokyo convention center.

Kubo is the executive producer at Tokyo Anime Center, and the top producer for the long-running "Pokemon" animated television and movie series. "Pokemon", which features a group of mythical creatures led by a fellow named Pikachu, is a favorite program for children and their parents all over the world - it is shown in at least 70 countries.

Kubo stalked around the booths at the exhibition to learn where anime - Japanese-style animated film - is headed, so he can try to continue "Pokemon's" 10-year reign at the top of the anime business.

The good news for the industry, Kubo says, is that anime films are attracting more U.S. fans.

Kubo says about 60 percent of anime films are based on Japanese comic books, known as manga.

In Asia, fans of manga, which tend to have complicated story lines aimed at adults, are able to make the shift to complex anime plots. Westerners, however, are less familiar with manga, and they are more used to the simpler story lines of Western animated films, so, Kubo says, they are less receptive to anime.

Kubo says that when an artist creates an animation based on manga, at times the complicated story line tends to creep in. He says people often assume anime is solely for kids and do not bother to look at it. But graphic novels are becoming prominent in countries such as the United States, he says, so people are becoming more receptive to complicated anime titles.

It's based on its own kind of storyline and plot. You have the main characters named after the versions of every Pokemon game for portable consoles (GB, GBC, GBA, DS, etc.), such as Red, Blue, Green, Silver, and so on. Some other characters of the manga appear in the anime and games. It's basically another story on its own.

Nope. The manga is different, in Pocket Monsters Special/Pokemon Adventures, the only thing that is really similar is that the main characters Pikachu is usually outside it's ball. The anime is based on the game.
