Bodypedia: Brain

Bodypedia is a medical science program targeting 6 to 8-year-olds. At that age, many kids have already started developing self-awareness and interest in their own bodies. The series, which is divided into several episodes made up of 1 to 3-minute segments, explores the beauty and mystery of the human body by using cute animated organ characters and high quality 4K/8K microscope images. It also makes use of CGs, employing the techniques that were accumulated from the NHK special series "The Body", to show the amazing world inside us and to offer a unique perspective on the human body, often through subtle comedy in order to engage the younger audience.
