JizzyHitler said:What an actual fuck did I just watched? I know Japan likes it hairy but that is worst than the other!
I mean, well i guess a Yuasa film still won but man did his other movie deserve a win way more
what the actual fuck is that other movie though, the trailer for it looks abysmal too, not even trying to be salty it looks like it was made on newgrounds
That's just a preview but it's already gross! The animation style was been even worst than Polygon Pictures animation!
So this how Nippon thinks now huh? Or the full film had something really good that it made that film to win an award?
Haters always gonna hate.
But they are all dumb asses who always love to bother unnecessarily.
