According to the official blog, director Yamamoto Yutaka will close his blog taking the responsibility for making a reckless announcement of his immediate retirement provoked by an anonymous inflammatory comment on the blog. He was harshly reprimanded by Noitamina producers Isoda and Shimizu and has withdrawn his retirement.
The dispute began when an anonymous person posted a provocative comment on Yamamoto's blog that "Stop relying on other creators' works. Why don't you produce your own original anime? If it fails, then quit the anime industry without making disgraceful excuses." Yamamoto replied "I'll retire right now if you want me to. On no conditions what-so-ever. I promise."
Director Yamamoto has repeatedly stated in public that he will retire if Fractale fails.
nah i dont see Yamamoto Yutaka as that emo or stupid, he may felt the pressure and got so much love on his work, that if people see his work as fail then he respected those comments and just wanna make way for new directors that is on the line
if you put so much time and effort and care on something you do and others just said its a failure then your sure gonna be feeling bad too
hmm reading what i wrote again i think what im trying to say is this
he put so much time and effort with the intention of pleasing the audiences, but later
those audiences that he gave his effort and time just told him he failed,
so obviously he will feel bad
