The Twitter account for Japan Anima(tor)'s Exhibition (Japan Animator Expo), the weekly anime shorts from Hideaki Anno's Studio Khara and the media company Dwango, reminded fans on Friday that the anime project's first and second seasons will end streaming service on Monday at 11:59 p.m. JST (9:59 a.m. EST).
Animator Expo had resumed streaming of its first season on November 9, except for episode 5 "Yoshikazu Yasuhiko & Ichiro Itano: Collection of KeyAnimation Films." The first two seasons are comprised of the first 24 shorts.
The third season will still be available for streaming after November 23. Animator Expo aired the 35th and final short "Cassette Girl" on October 9.
Hideaki Anno himself served as executive producer of the entire project initiative with Dwango President Nobuo Kawakami, and he also designed the image character mascot "(Tor)-kun." Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki created the title logo, and fellow Ghibli co-founder Toshio Suzuki colored it. The shorts mostly featured the voice talent of Ranma ½ and Cowboy Bebop co-stars Kouichi Yamadera and Megumi Hayashibara.
