Azuma Hiroki, the original story writer of Fractale, praised the other noitamina anime Hourou Musuko in his twitter and complained to the producer Yamamoto Koji that Fractale turned out to be an underdog of Hourou Musuko.

Azuma Hiroki said:
We cannot beat the perfect combination of the original manga and Okada Mari as the series composer, not to mention the water colored arts. You bullshit producer! This makes our anime an underdog. I think it's all over.

Yamamoto Yutaka, the director of Fractale, declared at the press conference that he is ready to retire when Fractale fails.

Sounds like someone has an inferiority complex. What a whinny bitch, he should focus on doing a good job, and not on what else might be better. Faggot should retire if he whines everytime he thinks other people are better then him.

I hate people that get all melodramatic over trivial stuff.

Well, I didn't watch Hourou Musuko yet, but Fractale great both in story and art. In fact, i think it's better than Hourou Musuko. Some people don't know what art is,and unfortunately he is one of them.

Lawl.

"Here, someone is saying and I translated that message across in a radically different style of writing that you remove the joke, and happy posting Can you take. "
Looks like either we done goofed or the author needs humor lessons.

Japanese narrow-minded OTAKU who were abandoned by director Yamamoto are in anti-Fractale action.

Azuma himself isn't pleased with the mistranslation from the original post. Here:

He said it in a joking tone, but people assumed it was serious and made a huge fuss about it.

Yamamoto Yutaka, the director of Fractale, declared at the press conference that he is ready to retire when Fractale fails.

WHEN here sounds more like an IF. That would mean he is actually quite hopeful about Fractale.

I really just don't understand this. I like HM better, but Fractale's art and music are its strongest points, and the best of the season IMO.

While yes Hourou Musukos art is some what better. The actual story and the way it is presented is not. I actually enjoy Fractale much better because the speed of it, keeps it interesting. HM is boring and confusing. I knew at the beginning they were going to have trouble conveying a story like HM, and it seems they proved me right. Skipping 6 chapters may not have been their best idea.

Fractale has a movie like feeling to it, which I like.


I'm pretty sure you can't say anything about the pacing of the show after one episode. Also, the first episode seems to be deliberately confusing as a way of picking up interest and introducing characters.

I don't see what is hard about conveying a story like HM. It is a pretty linear story of romance and maturation.

I like both. However, they are two different shows with different genres and directions. You can't really compare them just because they are both anime and on the Noitamina timeslot.

I guess Yamamoto has already lost half the battle. Sheesh, a director even.

…The hell? I don’t know if the guy is being sarcastic and just trolling around or he’s really that overly dramatic to make such drastic assumptions not even a week after the first episodes of both series aired.

Oh well, it’s not like I truly care.

The fuck? Both Fractale and Hourou Musuko are quality shows. I (judging by the first episode) prefer Fractale. Hourou Musuko may be way better animated and the atmosphere is better than Fractale, but the story is confusing as hell.

But really, they're both good shows. Why pin them against each other? Also "it's all over", what the fuck does that mean?


Hourou Musuko is little confusing but story is good slice of life.

The Japanese do everything in "High-Intensity", uh?

Kudos to those that got the Angel Beats! reference xD

Why do the overwhelming majority of people who posted so far think this guy is serious? Unless I am missing a critical piece of this guy's story, he's clearly being sarcastic.

i hope so, because otherwise with that attitude fractale is going down the shitter.

Both shows are among the weakest series ever broadcasted on the Noitamina slot, that's all.

Although it's too early to jump to conclusions, I agree with the post quoted. Still hope it will get better.
