A couple of things to get you started...

1) From a technical aspect, one of the biggest pieces you will need is a
domain registration system. When you open up a new TLD, at some point
news of it will hit a forum related to the subject, and you will get a
flood of people trying to register every name under th sun. Make sure
you have something in place that automatically expires the domains that
don't actually get used within a reasonable timeline.

2) For the purposes of usability, you will want to develop a set of
rules describing what kinds of websites are allowed, or specifically not
allowed. Do you want to restrict the TLD to anime videos only, or allow
comics, books, fan-fic, etc? Are you also open to other forms of
cartoons, or will you only allow media from the Japanese culture? Will
personal sales or commercial websites be allowed? What's your policy on
spamming and scamming? These are the types of things you need to
consider, and at least come up with a rough-draft of what you would like
the TLD policies to be.

Very interesting subject matter... good luck!
