Message Cartoon Festa 2009 with theme: Healthy Aging

Theme: Healthy Aging

[Ageless youth and longevity] was the hope that was not granted of King and nobles in the world. To make the dreams come true, stories were born about how loads of money were poured for the search of magical medicine.
Today, people are able to realize have “long life”, but if questioned about whether they are “happy”, the answer may not always be “yes”. Long lived and happy are unfortunately note always slow and stress free life.
Let’s all laugh off such a stress together!
The reason we decided the theme as “Healthy Aging” is so we hope that young generations can have positive image for the future.
Let’s find energetic and happy elders in the work!
