Now looking from the business perspective 2 points called my attention:
- They don`t promise any kind of financial support to make your plan come true, but at least you get the chance to show your idea to the propriety rights holders.
- You must be fluent in Japanese, not only they don`t have a website in English, but also it`s in the rules that those who can`t communicate properly in Japanese won`t have their plan accepted. IMHO this shows that the Japanese still aren`t so proactive to promote Anime related products abroad, otherwise they`d at least consider entries in English.
But if you`re proficient in Japanese this is a nice opportunity. I`m considering to send an entry to see how things work, wish me luck!
