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.

Done with great style, and very educative! Too many people out there tend to overlook the differences between Japanese animation and American cartoons. This is the kind of flashes that really set the score right!

Please, do more! Your talent is amazing, and there's still so much more around that can be used! For example... the differences between Bishoujo and Bishonen? Or what about that little nack of Shinto that requires its followers to "die with all their of their bodies" but their anime reflect LOTS of cyborgs and similars? And that's just off my head right now! I'm sure you can thing of something else. Good job!

I rather Liked it. It was rather interesting to see and lean about the techniques that are part of Anime.
