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 think this is the first time a flash movie has ever taught me anything, which I had previously supposed was a good thing, but this is presented in a great fashion with a lot of prime examples. Nice job on this one. I actually enjoyed learning something for once... Amazing...

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Under rated.. Vote 4-5!!

This movie is well worth 4.2! It's under rated and I think it's too bad..

You taught me some really important things! Tonight I'm going to go to sleep a little less dumber.

Thanks! I think the low score so far was because the original version had a broken preloader. I fixed it, I think... could someone tell me if it plays now?
