At Toei Studio which produced the animation series One Piece.

It was a close encounter and indepth understanding especially in the perspective of animation production in comparison with Japanese counterpart.

Merchandising and  Brand Licensing are the key elements  for  their worldwide business acknowledgement. Looking back from my own perspective its not that  hard to follow their footstep.

Even though the Japanese Anime is standing tall compared to our local Animation industry but I do believe we could rub shoulders in many ways.
