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.

Smart, influential and professionally executed

This was a great piece of work! It was interesting to watch all the way through.

There is no doubt in my mind this guys will be creating Tv programs in the future.

Cartoon Network needs to air this.
Also every animator who doesnt understand anime needs to watch this.

I personally look forward to seeing more work from this director. Great Work!
