Iwata Naomi Characters Official Website now available
both in English and Japanese!

Polygon Pictures ("PPI," President and CEO: Shuzo Shiota, Head Office: Tokyo, Japan) is proud to announce the opening of the English version of the Iwata Naomi Characters Official Website (http://www.iwatanaomi.com/en/).

Iwata Naomi, currently represented by Polygon Pictures, is the creator who brought us Japan's first full-CG animated TV series, Gregory Horror Show, which achieved an average viewership record of 4-5% despite its brief two-minute late-night broadcast time. Iwata has gone on to create many other unique works, including Pecola, a co-production with Canada and winner of the award for Outstanding TV Series at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival.

With the opening of the English version of the existing Japanese website, we can now share Iwata Naomi’s inventive and warmhearted universe with an even wider audience around the world. Followers can look forward to further exciting additions in the future. We hope you enjoy the site!
