In 1915 at Nikkatsu, Seitaro Kitayama (北山清太郎 Kitayama Seitarō?), a painter, began working with animation. In the next year, Tenkatsu, or Tennenshoku Katsudō Shashin Kabushiki Gaisha ("Natural Color Moving Picture Company"), began experimenting with animation with the manga artist Hekoten/Oten Shimokawa. Kobayashi Shōkai started animation production with the manga artist Junichi Kouchi (幸内純一 Kōuchi Jun'ichi?). Shimokawa produced the animation by drawing with a chalk on a blackboard, redrawing as necessary to create the animation effect.[4] Mukuzo Imokawa was a manga character that Shimokawa used in his manga.
