In this "Japan × EU × Taiwan Goodwill Games", the Japanese side had won a prize in the "CG Animation Contest", and the EU and Taiwan had also won their respective contests, and were eager to put their national and regional prestige on the line and win.In addition to seven associate judges who participate via the Internet, the winner will be determined by online voting and the volume of applause at the venue.In some cases, the judges, the audience, and the Internet were divided in their evaluations of the entries, but the EU team came out on top in three of the five rounds and won the competition.

Prior to the event, "The 24th CG Animation Contest - Selected Works Screening" was held to entertain the fans by introducing 9 excellent works by Japanese animation creators, although they did not represent Japan in the Ani Cup.

The contest is Japan's most traditional competition for individually produced CG animation (personal CG animation), with more than 6,000 entries to date, and has produced many top creators who are active in Japan and overseas.
