According to Otona Anime magazine, director Yamamoto Yutaka has decided to leave the anime industry for the time being. He has been at a loss what to do because the audience didn't accept Fractale and he couldn't understand other TV anime. He wondered whether he had gone insane or the world had gone crazy.
I think the problem with fractale was that like haruhi it kinda tried to be a bunch of different things at once, but it just didn't work out as well. I think it had to do with less compelling characters, at least for me.
Ah well, I say give the guy his space, let him figure out what he wants to do.
Lol, so he was actually serious. HAHAHAHAHA. Well, retard as he is, he had a few good hits. I loved Kannagi for example. But seriously, retiring over his first flop? Overreacting much? Just shrug it off and learn from it. Don't pout that people "don't get you", that's just sad.
Honestly Fractale was just too confusing, there was not enough set up to the point where 2 episodes were left and ruined just about everything I knew. I took me forever to wrap my head around Nessa (wtf read hair) I was stuck on the fact that I was given images of fractale and it had Clain with this Purple-haired girl I literally thought that a purple haired girl was going to appear for 2 episodes.

Let's see... hated Air, I've heard both good and bad about Black Rock Shooter, gave up on Fate/stay night, haven't seen Fractale and apparently I don't want to, stuff I've never heard of... I need to get to Kannagi, first four episodes of Lucky Star... lol, Haruhi is the only good one so far, and then something I've never heard of.
Yeah, he should've just left your success with Haruhi.

His reaction seems like that of a kid. Maybe he should've just said...'Hmm, I'm a little tired so I'll retire and take a rest - go sightseeing' etc. But bitching about people not liking his anime and walking off in a huff just seems childish.
A disappointment Yamakan is leaving the industry for god knows how long but it was predictable from day one. Lack of a fandom in Pixiv for one, at least it wasn't Freezing.
But this does paint a depressing view on what "works" in Japan. Here's the following that doesn't "work": Animes with strong sexual themes (Not random fanservice), Foreigner Adaptations like Iron Man and Gaijin Manga (Freezing). They simply don't have good fandoms
The flaws Fractale had are pretty obvious. Not realizing that seems more like he's sulking. But then fighting against that mainstream bullshit in Japan is probably harder then you think.
Catering to japanese otakus won't let the industry progress. They should target shows like Fractale at the international market where it receives the appreciation it deserves, as long as they don't pull stupid endings.
Fractale was good for me in the beginning but by the end of it I just didn't feel connected to the story or even understand what was going on, its the most disappointing anime for me as far has the winter season goes. I did like Kannagi though and Lucky Star got better after he left.
Fractale started out heavenly, with all these amazing setups. Then they DTICHED it all for this child like love story. FFS, why you do that!? Will probs read the manga, hear it's much better (per usual, lol).
Haruhi...meh. Interesting ideas but for the most part, it was badly presented.It was like Natsume Yuujonchou without the awesome... Apparently the movie is amazing so I may watch it.
Zammyfighter said: May someone explain to me why everyone hates him? He seems to have some really successful anime that he had produced like Kannagi, Air, Lucky Star, and Haruhi. Why does everyone hate such a man?
#1 He was FIRED after 4 episodes of Lucky Star
#2 Kannagi was Horrible
#3 Fractale had horrible ratings and this guy is officially insane....so..
