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.

Nicely Done!

Excellent work! It was framed well and made like a short documentary! Hope you make more of these, and maybe some documentaries on the pioneering Anime shows themselves, like Robotech, Ranma 1/2, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Volron, Astroboy, etc. And make another one showing the different styles and genres of anime. More power! GOD bless!

I enjoyed watching this. It was entertaining and educational. Although it wasn't true, ti did show some insight to techniques that were used to make anime easier to animate.
