This is a list of anime by release date which covers Japanese animated productions that were made between 1946–1959. After World War II, Japan was occupied by the allies which mainly consisted of the Americans.[1] During the shift from an empire to a democracy the animation industry continued producing new animated films. The first anime broadcast on TV did not come though until 1958 when Mole's Adventure was released. This marked two major milestones as it was also the first ever color animation in the country. The first full length color animation was also released in 1958 with the title The Tale of the White Serpent, in America it was also known as Panda and the Magic Serpent. Animated television series were later released in the 1960s which include Astro Boy, the first major successful anime.
