Abstract

This paper introduces an animation story generation system called WordsAnime using the animation database provided by animation Consumer Generated Media. A user generates a story by repeating the steps of inputting scenarios and viewing animations. The system presents manual, semiautomatic, and fully automatic modes of creating scenarios using a common knowledge base that links different scenarios with each other.
