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.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

been an anime mark since i first saw robot circus

i remember first seeing the anime movie compilation,robot circus, and it got me hooked to japanime ever since. that's been over 15 years ago. i would love to learn how to draw shit like that but i don't see a real call for it where i'm from. still love to learn. good story dude, im intrigued to learn more and maybe pick it up if i ever get the balls to.

Much more interesting than any other history lesson I have ever taken part in. It is so sad that Hiro was killed in a Godzilla attack.
