“Anime Supremacy! celebrates the joy of self-sacrificing teamwork in pursuit of a goal, in this case beating a rival network’s show for the ratings championship in a key Saturday time slot.”
-Japan Times

A soft-spoken but strong willed animator gets her big break, but must compete with a legendary animator returning to the business for a Saturday primetime spot in this new live action comedy/drama about Japan’s anime industry. When the young animator challenges her hero-turned-rival on stage at an anime convention, the two production teams each set out to outdo one another, because there can only be one number-one!
