Launched in 2013, Database for Animation Studies is a part of the project called Mapping Project for Animation Studies held by Japanese Association of Animation Studies. It collects the information of the books and the articles on Animation Studies and share it. By doing it, this website aims to show the map of the landscape of Animation Studies.
This website was originally made by Japanese Society of Animation Studies in 2013 and renewed in 2016 as one of the commissioned projects of Promotion for Collaboration Projects of Media Geijutsu, by Agency of Cultural Affairs, Japan.
