BANZAI is Javier Salazar's personal IP-creation and animation studio. A project born in 2005, to fulfill his childhood dream of creating his own animated cartoons.
Banzai (万歳) means “to live ten thousand years”. Once a blessing to the emperor, and the battle cry of the Samurai era, it is now widely used in Japan for cheering all sorts of achievements, 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 apparently, our clients and viewers love what we do too.
And that is good news.
So, let's work -and have fun- together.
And, of course, let's celebrate.
