Also at NYU, the Center for Advanced Digital Applications is planning to
offer an eight-session summer class on technical aspects of anime, geared at industry professionals, as well as those seeking to produce anime or anime-like works. Additional information is availalble here.

Finally, the Division of Educational Outreach at the University of Nevada,
Las Vegas, is offering an "Introduction to Anime" course between March 8 and
