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.

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.

informative+entertaining.. IT WAS ENTERFORMATIVE!

You pulled of a semi-informative cartoon with flying colors (and stomping Godzillas)

Very informative and interesting....and it really answered a lot of my questions about Anime. Good luck in the future and please make more.

Very Enlightening

Ohhh... so that's why anime characters stand around like statues all the time. Drawing that way saves time, detail, and money spent on arthritis creams. Cool.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Interesting and informative

I liked you style and would like to see more of your work posted here.
Congrats on an excellent start here.
No violence or any interactivity beyond the menu screen options, but otherwise worthy of greatness.
