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 5 / 5 stars

Awesome Movie

Everything about this was perfect: the audio choice, narration + voice acting, clean and smooth graphics, the nice storyline, and the humor in this. Not to mention, you really captured the anime style and essence well. :)
