so the main VA is also the director and scriptwriter? lol

how common is this in the anime industry?
Mirai Nikki is TRASH
Angel Beats is horrible.
Charlotte is a dumpster fire.
Shinsekai Yori has no characters.
Oreimo's S2 specials don't actually exist.

Okay so this is weird as fuck.

So an VA is also an script writer and director? what? I don't really see that so often nowadays and this is rather... interesting, for the wrong reasons.

But who knows this might turn out fun but Idk.
