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 would have given this a higher rating if I hadn't had to rate it just to read a review to find out HOW to get it to play.. It was frustrating to say the least.

Well drawn! This pointed out to me alot of things in anime I saw, just never took note of because it fits so well! Did realy good!

-Note: Thes one little thing! The preloader loaded up, and no play button showed, and the movie didnt play! Some people who dont know how to rightclick and play are gonna be a little cheesed off, but its easy to fix!

Great, but there may be something wrong...

I had to right-click to make it play, but maybe that was just my computer. Otherwise, this was great!
