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.

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!

It was really interresting, good voice quality and perfect informations. You should fix the preloader though. Many newgrounders won't like it, since it isn't really newgrounds stuff, but keep up the work and show us some more of your work.

Good luck in the future!

Fix the preloder quickly!

The preloader is a bit broken...

I watched the first few minutes of the movie, but figured its best to review it now before it gets to many low votes.


From what ive seen so far, the graphics and animation are brilliant!
The warning at the beginning is pretty funny too!
So far so good, just fix the preloder FAST!

I'm sorry about the preloader. My specially is animation, not scripting. I've fixed it right away and I hope that helps.
