Japan: Plutonium, Our Reliable Friend

Categories: East Asia, Japan, Arts & Culture, Disaster, Education, Environment, Politics, Science

Professor Yuji Ankei [1] posted on Youtube a rare version of the animated video called Mr. Pluto, our reliable friend – Story of plutonium [2] (頼れる仲間プルト君——プルトニウム物語). The video, that was later withdrawn, was made in the 1990s by the Japanese Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation and “tries to convince younger generations that Plutonium is not so dangerous as you imagine or many anti-nuclear activists insist.” Pinktentacle provided a detailed summary of the video [3] in English.
