imagine shitposting on an anime director's mal page because you're pissed that your anime didn't go how you wanted it to, lmaoooo

His work on Majimoji Rurumo was fantastic. The OVA had me in the feels through and through.

This guy shouldn't be blamed for the production issues of OPM2, i'm sure he tried his best to live up to the expectations despite his lack of experience so if anything we should thank him for at least trying.


todd2580 | Jul 4, 4:24 PM
@honey--mint @H-X-H wait for the BD and you don't know what he was facing because you didn't get his position and stop being toxic and ignorant for the guy he tried his best though


H-X-H | Jul 4, 7:23 AM
Fu** this no name director he single handily destroyed OPM S2


kuraharah | Jul 3, 3:03 PM
Amazing how some people are actually trying to excuse opm2. "Tight schedule", "tried his hardest", "yall are just obsessed with s1", okay, it still does not change the fact that the final product is bad

*Claps*


todd2580 | Jun 16, 2:22 PM

@Zaugr

he's doing decent in a tight schedule though you can't really blame him he doesn't have the time to do anything rather adapting the manga unlike Natsume so don't be Harsh on him


RED_COMET_ | Jun 11, 4:23 PM
Thanks for ruining OPM you talentless hack


Zaugr | Jun 11, 2:15 PM
Please never direct another anime ever again. The directing for OPM S2 is even more disappointing and worse than the animation and art quality. This guy doesn't know how to use the medium at all, he just carbon copies the manga's pace and transitions, adding nothing--and it feels so jarring and awfully paced. And he doesn't even copy it well, he can even take ONE's amazing material and make it feel weak. He doesn't know how to give any special weight to important scenes, and the way the BGM is utilized non-stop... Practically every creative decision taken this season stinks, and this guy's the head of it.

The people vehemently defending this guy and this season are 100% the same crowd who fought against any and all of the recent game of thrones criticism. A certain crowd would be happy gargling liquid shit from their beloved creator's hairy asshole so long as they continue to get more content to mindlessly watch and escape into. They don't really appreciate or care for the art or the effort put into it, they just care about getting the most basic, laziest level of entertainment out of it. And that's not really a big problem... It's only when they treat it as the only possible valid view to justify it--and make up all manner of excuses to both blindly defend the creator and to disregard those with actual criticism. Like someone has done here.
