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 loved it

Great animation, great sounds, funny unrealistic attempt at an educational film. I liked how you just made up the guy as a semi poke at japanese animation. I assume you meant nothing bad towards anime artists. This is very funny, and I liked the style it has and I liked how it both truthfully and non-truthfully uncovers anime.

I like

Only problem is the preloader, other than that I thougth it was very cool, and an interesting look at the History of Anime. Nice Job my friend.
