Before there was Sailor Moon…there was The Dull Sword

As highlighted on Hyperallergic, the National Film Center of Japan’s National Museum of Modern Art has uploaded a ton of early Japanese animation to mark the centennial of Japan’s oldest known animated film.

You can see all the films here, and the very oldest–a 1917 work discovered in an antique store in 2008!–is The Dull Sword (pictured above), available here.
