Achievements of Yoyogi Animation Gakuin graduates

Teng Chong

21st year graduate: Kusanagi Co., Ltd. (unofficial decision)

I got a job offer from a company called Kusanagi Background Art, which mainly produces background art for TV anime, theater animation, games, and so on. I think the most famous anime I've worked on is the "Fullmetal Alchemist" series, and this year, the company celebrated its 30th anniversary. In the early days, he used to draw on paper, but now he has switched to CG and uses 3D software a lot.

42 years since the school was opened, and more than 12 million graduates.
