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.


Good actually

I must say the last review amused me, slating this and giving no real justification why.
As an anime fan i enjoyed this a great deal, and was not remotely bored at any point, which is usually a danger with educational material.
Good work

thank you! and no, I won't let a bad review overshadow the piles of good ones.


As to why most educational videos can't be as entertaing as that confuses me. Maybe it's just the fact that it's content material is really interesting. Though, I already knew that just by actually viewing anime, but was great experience overall. Animation and style was solid and had humourous highlights.


I know now.....

Wow, this is like an actual learning film. I like it! It teaches me soooooo much. =O and for being educational and awesome, u get a good rating!
I like it! => Thank you Hiro Shitaku *sniffle*
For making the world a funner place....

Nice very nice

I think teachers should teach more about people like Hiro :D. And I hope every dosen't think the song you play at the end means that your turning Japenses :P, I hope you all know the real meaning ;). :P
