A representation of sound and movement in Japanese animated cartoon

When we look back in the history of Japanese animation, it is possible to divide Japanese cartoon in two types; characters will move and not move. The most of the latter began with an television (animation) series Astra Bay. which was first released in the year 1963. One of the characteristics of this animation is that the movement is not created by the actions of the characters but it is developed through effective camera works and by the process of editing. The main subject of this thesis is to consider how elements such as speech, music and sound effect creates movement in the televison series.
