Well, I don't see anything he "directed" poorly; the Hen Zemi OVA was better than its TV series adaptation, Softenni was doomed to fail anyway and the first season of Hidamari Sketch was fantastic. His page doesn't seem to have all of his staff positions, though, so there could have been something.

This is coming from someone who hasn't seen TLR: Darkness; I could be wrong.

I wonder what's next for him. Well what ever he does, I wish him luck.

Maybe he wants to direct porno instead? There's enough ecchi scenes in the anime listed above to start him off.
My Twitter
My Tumblr - Anime Blogging on current airing season as I watch them.
My deviantArt - Anime FanArts.

Please leave replies on my profile page, as I am unlikely to see them otherwise. Thanks.

Key animators don't really get paid much, they mainly join the industry because they love to draw. Unless you're working for KyoAni, it's a really irregular source of income.

All the more reason for me to buy ToLoveRu Darkness BDs.

Thank you, Kamitsubo-sensei !!
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Well, you can say the job of animators itself does not pay much, but the really miserable pay goes to those who do in-between animation job which is massive but also tedious. Much of the work now goes overseas to Korea, China, Vietnam even the Philippines but there are still this kind of work being done inside Japan.

What his Twitter said was "Working on an anime as a job ToLoveRu Darkness is the last" and "I will look for some other work".

Then why does the topic title say he retired?

Perhaps you should ask the initial poster?

What I understand is that he said he is retiring from anime production work, not general retirement.

Well, that's just... sadly worded. Makes me feel bad for the guy. According to that list, the only thing I've seen of his is TLR Darkness... which I like a lot, but mainly due to me loving the manga and its predecessor seasons. It ain't bad to me.

^ To be precise he said ToLoveRu Darkness is his last in anime production work. This seems to mean that he is not only retiring from directing anime, but any work related to making an anime.

Not everyone is willing to change even after realizing they can't do something well. Then again, I don't know how much pressure was on the guy. Good luck to him anyhow.

You're kidding me,right?
A person this talented who has directed 'motto to love ru' is going to retire because he doesn't have a very good hand in drawing?
He...he...he has no idea what he's doing...he can be a part of making an anime...it's my biggest wish to be a part of that...and he's just gonna let it go?

So how old is he now? He might not even need another job if he got the cash.
