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 He was harshly reprimanded by Noitamina producers Isoda and Shimizu and has withdrawn his retirement.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.

Provocation succeeded. It's really not rational to say something like that. *Think twice*

We can make it a moe show and have him SD and go "Mouu! Pun pun!"

Lol, weird.

Fractale isn't a failure so far, so that should boost the guy's inflated ego.

That idiot is such a drama queen. They should seriously let him retire. One less idiot in the industry.


I agree. His more of a troll than the anonymus troll. What's wrong with this dude?

With all the controversy surrounding Fractale, it's pretty much a guarantee that he'll retire.

oh god, this series of events makes me laugh so hard :D oh Yamamoto Yutaka, you so crazy xD

I don't know if this is for a PR, but he's making a lot of noise for an anime which is frankly unimpressive at best. This fracas he's creating overshadows even more the show he's making.

Is this going to turn into a weekly event between episodes?
What's next?
