Did you ever wondered what Toei Animation studios might be like ? Thanks to Carlo, a very talented artist who worked in Yumiko Igarashi's team, you'll be glad to discover Toei Animation and its offices at the time when they were working on Candy and other animes such as Captain Harlock, UFO Robo Grendizer, Captain Future and many other ones...

Bon voyage into the past! ^____^
