Welcome again to JJNN for Tuesday January 20th, 2009. Today we will be talking about studio 4°C.
There are many different studios out there that produce animation. Probably the most well known studio is Studio Ghibli. Studio Ghibli is the animation studio that did such famous movies as "Princess Mononoke" and "My Neighbor Totoro." Another one of the studios out there is called Studio 4°C. Studio 4°C was set up on May second 1986 when Tanaka Eiko and Morimoto Kouji came together. The reason for the name of the studio is the fact that water is most dense at about 4°C. The studio said they wanted all of their works to be dense with meaning and full of life.
Studio 4°C has done a lot of work on movies, but their main line of animated work is on music videos. A couple of these music videos can be seen below.
Studio 4°C also does some work on commercials. Below you can see one of their more wacky car commercials. It basically tells the story of ...something... from the sea and how a family uses their car to get it back to the sea. Extremely strange by funny.
Any way, it is now time for the word of the day. Today's word is 摂氏(せっし). It is pronounced kasshi and means Celsius. In my own personal opinion Celsius kicks Fahrenheit's ass.
That's it for today. See you next time at JJNN.
