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 4 / 5 stars


I loved the dry, sarcastic humor in this. Very different from the slapstick/junk humor you typically see on Newgrounds.

It made fun of all the things I dislike about anime. I personally have never found anime to be interesting at all, and prefer American cartooning.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


That has to be one of, if not the best flashes I have ever seen. Keep up the good work.

P.S. The godzilla attack was hillarious.

Now THIS Is a Masterpiece....

Thank you so much for putting such work and effort into educating us about Japanese Animation. I am an Anime Otaku myself, so naturally I love the subject matter. Even though the main character is fictitious, it still provides a lot of interesting and helpful information. I really enjoyed it. (By the way, this is only the second movie I have ever scored a 5, and 10s in the review. So be flattered!)
