Yes... while Hiro Shitaku is fictional (means, not real...), the remaining goodness in this "edu-mation" (at over seven minutes long) is accurate, and with a bit of comedy, will explore the history and techniques of the Japanese animation industry. I had a lot of fun making it, and I hope everyone enjoy's watching it!

** Disclaimer: to avoid confusion, Hiro was not a real person. However, all of the techniques discussed in this film were instead created by the industry as a whole to deal with their insane production quotas. Learn, laugh, but please don't take this film 100% seriously. Sorry.

Good job

Informitive to say the least. Though I couldn't over look the Voice acting, and I felt the creating a fictional character to represent the "shortcuts" Used in anime could have been done a little better.

Also, I would've have shown the dark side of this story: How these shortcuts were horribly abused in many cases in animes and in nonjapanese cartoons alike.

Oh god......

I think my ears are bleeding...
Excellent animation style, and good information, so well done there, but for the love of Christ, could you use a narrarator without a "faux-gruff" voice next time? I found myself wanting to close the window at several points due to the accent. Other than that, good movie, and you should definately create more.
