Welcome to the Mountain of Knives! 

Animator Chris Sagovac founded the Mountain of Knives in the summer of 2016 along with a small group of outlaw cel-swords to create original content right here in the United States. The Mountain of Knives is an independent animation studio specializing in grindhouse style micro animation and comics. The St. Louis, Missouri based studio mixes chanbara, chopsocky, splatter, and wuxia themes into ultraviolent collages of death. Chanbaragogo is the animation channel and brand that delivers content direct from the mountain, drenched in copious amounts of blood! You have already watched our first production: "Kansay's Glorious Death" and we want you to be a part of the many stories to follow. 

Animation takes an incredible amount of time and labor, each drawing amounting to fractions of a second. Most of the outlaw cel-swords I work with are paid well in wine and bladed weapons but we need food! Sustenance to keep creating, or cruel animation masters will cast us from the top of the mountain. So we are seeking patronage from lovers of sword and fist. Since animation is a time intensive art, we would like to invite you on the journey with us behind the scenes with videos, concept art, and so many rough passes you will think you are the Producer. Hey! You are the Producer! 

Join the Mountain of Knives! Become a outlaw cel-sword! Descend into Hell 99, with an army of assassins, for a kill so big, it could trigger the end times!
