Animation production from across the sea

Our studio in Japan is not the only place where our animation is produced. TOEI ANIMATION PHILS.,INC.(TAP)is our subsidiary in Manila, Philippines, with which our Oizumi(Hikarigaoka)Studio in Tokyo shares a borderless production network connected with optical cables. We also have dedicated lines connecting to the 21 domestic production studios that work with us, and our entire production process is digitalized for maximum efficiency.
