BANZAI is Javier Salazar's IP-creation and animation production studio. A project born in 2005, to fulfill a childhood dream of creating animated cartoons.
Banzai (万歳) means “to live ten thousand years”. Once the battle cry of the Samurai era (and a blessing to the emperor) it is now widely used in Japan for cheering all sorts of achievements and as an expression of best wishes for the future.
With this spirit of joy and permanence is that we create original characters and conceive awesome stories and worlds where these characters can grow, live adventures, and inspire the audience.
We love what we do, and we hope you will too.
So, let's work -and have fun- together.
And, of course, let's always celebrate.
