Synopsis

Midori Asakusa sees the world a bit differently. Always having her nose in a sketchbook, Asakusa draws detailed landscapes and backgrounds of both the world around her and the one within her boundless imagination. Even the simple act of doodling on a wall evolves into an emergency repair on the outer hull of her spaceship. She is only brought back to reality by her best friend Sayaka Kanamori. The pair are stark opposites, with Asakusa's childlike wonder contrasted by Kanamori's calculated approach to life.

After a chance encounter where the two "save" the young model Tsubame Misuzaki from her overprotective bodyguard, a connection instantly sparks between Asakusa and Misuzaki, as both share an intense passion for art and animation. Whereas Asakusa is interested in backgrounds and settings, Misuzaki loves drawing the human form. Sensing a money-making opportunity, Kanamori suggests that they start an animation club, which they disguise as a motion picture club since the school already has an anime club. Thus begins the trio's journey of producing animation that will awe the world.

From the brilliant mind of Masaaki Yuasa, Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na! is a love letter to animation, wildly creative in its approach, and a testament to the potential of the medium.

I really wanted to love this show, it’s just there is nothing to love, because there is nothing, period. It is entirely devoid of substance.

The series is a monster-of-the-week about three aspiring anime creators, the “monster” being them imagining their various everyday happenstances as fantastical animated dream sequences. There is some glimpse of a plot about their anime-making school club, but that’s not the point, the point is a love letter to the medium, celebrating the creative power of animation. These imaginative scenarios are indeed creative and pleasant to look at. You know what else is creative and pleasant to look at? Actual anime, where read more

“Art reflects reality”

A commonly used expression usually used to express the idea that art takes shape based on happenings in the real world.

2020’s winter crown jewel without a doubt is Eizouken and offers a perfect example of the aforementioned expression. It follows three high school girls on their journey to create an anime for an upcoming festival. The two creatives, Tsubame and Asakusa are held together by Kanamori who acts as their de facto agent and manager, keeping them on track. Along the way we are able to follow the creative process of the girls and gain amazing insight into the absolutely monumental task read more

I love anime. You love anime. We all love anime.

Eizouken: Hands off the Motion Pictures Club is about people who love anime. They love it so much. They spend the entire show making anime, talking about anime, and thinking about anime. The intricacies of storyboarding, animation, sound design, voice acting, and management get illustrated in detail. I learned a great deal about anime production by watching this.

Eizouken wanted to capture the magic of creativity and artists’ extraordinary minds, and maybe it did for a few moments. The rest is an unfulfilled promise that left me feeling robbed.

It introduces three likable comrades who are read more

The possibilities from a single production are simply infinite. But only enthusiasm can make high quality ones. Moreover, everything won't work without skill and diplomacy. What's the key to success? This concept is covered by so many different topics.

Eizouken. This show which gives the best answer to this question. Let me explain and prove why.

The main theme of the show is the anime industry itself. I've seen lots of anime, but I still didn't know how it was made or produced. After watching this show, I finally understand about its inner workings/structures. Making something can't breakthrough the difficulty easily. I realized it. Of course, I read more
