The oldest public television covering all of Fukushima in Japan. Otherwise known as TUF.

Analog Era

(1983-Mid 1990's)

Opening Logo

TBA

Closing Logo

RESA

Logo: We see the same animation opener from the first logo, and then TBA.

FX/SFX: Beautiful animation and graphics that could resist until this time. Done by Japan Computer Graphics Lab.

Music/Sounds: The opener from the opening logo, which segues into a sooth, tranquile synth melody. The female announcer then says the signal and the name of the company. While finishing the melody, the announcer sings the same jingle "T-U-FFFFFF!!!!" from the opening logo. It then jarringly ends.

Availability: Rare, but unlike the opening logo, it's available on youtube. It's only used at closedowns.

Scare Factor: Low bordering on medium, because of the darkness and the neon scanimate, which would get scared at first time viewers.

Digital Era

(2010-pres)

Senrima

Opening Logo

Logo: We zoom up into a cycle in a white sight of the city of Fukushima with blue sky. We then get to the headquarters, they open the doors which reveals a series of nature and animals from the region, ending with a sunshine. The signal from before appears on it, and then the logo from the previous one except with more blue and no "u" signature. The name in japanese appears after. The headquarters doors close and then we zoom out very fast and then the camera gets up, which reveals the same aformentioned "TUF" zooming in very slowly. The white sight then fades into blank space and the "TUF" is seen clearly.

FX/SFX: Again, very professional animation, especially for the country and place.

Music/Sounds: An remade rendition of the original opening theme from the analog era.

Availability: Very common. Can be seen on their current startups on that time.

Scare Factor: Minimal because of the brightness and the remade rendition of the music, but still it's no doubt that this is one of the best logos ever made, due to it's animation.

Closing Logo

Logo: Same as before, but with a sunset and different scenes of natures and animals of before.

FX/SFX: Same as the last logo.

Music/Sounds: An remade rendition of the original closedown from the analog era.

Availability: Same as the last logo.

Scare Factor: Low, for this being a closedown and we can see series of the sunset with the nature suddenly darkening, but this still isn't an excuse for one of the best logos ever created.
