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.

I had the pleasure of raising the score of this submission from 3.99 to 4 flat. This is an amazing and clever flash and would make great educational content for schools around the world. I especially like the "warning" a the beginning of the film. I'd like to see more work like this. Excellent job. <(^_^)>

this was pritty good but could have been a bit more humourous.
the place shown is shubuya
the cross walk is always packed with people and the city of shubuya is awsome if you ever go to japan deffinatly go there
