Before there was Sailor Moon...there was The Dull Sword

As highlighted on Hyperallergic, the National Film Center of Japan’s National Museum of Modern Art has uploaded a ton of early Japanese animation to mark the centennial of Japan's oldest known animated film.

You can see all the films here, and the very oldest--a 1917 work discovered in an antique store in 2008!--is The Dull Sword (pictured above), available here.
