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.

Interesting and informative

I liked you style and would like to see more of your work posted here.
Congrats on an excellent start here.
No violence or any interactivity beyond the menu screen options, but otherwise worthy of greatness.

This as a great learning experince for me, it didn't at all feel like this was made for school, for a project or anything. I was like some off the history channel, spet not boring. To this, i say, GOOD JOB!

Thank you

I really dug that, the insight into the history of anime was impressive. It brings together a lot of the elements that seemed crazy when I first started watching Japanese animation.

btw, I loved the bambi vs. godzilla reference

please make more!
