Anime: A History Competition Winners Announced!

January 13, 2014

Many thanks to all of you who entered the competition to win a copy of Anime: A History by Jonathan Clements. We asked, 'What year was the first Astro Boy anime series first broadcast in Japan?' The answer, of course, was 1963.

(Though we acknowledge those people who put '1959,' which was the year of the first Astro Boy TV series. However, the 1959 version was a live-action series, and our question did specify 'anime series.')

So the winners are:

F. Boyle from Glasgow!

Luke Fitzsimmons from Hatton, Derbyshire!

And Kelly Curtis from Middleton Cheney in Banbury!

Congratulations to you all!
