The first Japanese-Chinese joint TV cartoon, based on the Chinese historical novel “The Romance of the Three Kingdoms,” has been produced and will be broadcast across China, its producers, including Japanese toy maker Tomy Co, said Tuesday. The other two producers are Future Planet Co, a Tokyo-based video-content maker, and a Chinese animation company under public broadcaster China Central Television.
CCTV has decided to broadcast the animation across China and the partners are also considering airing it on TV in Japan and other parts of the world in the future. ‘‘The Romance of the Three Kingdoms’’ is a 14th-century novel depicting battles among the ancient Chinese kingdoms of Wei, Shu and Wu.
