If this is the right guy, then he's got his hands on the Shenmue anime.

dude singlehandedly destroyed a whole season of opm.

@VejituhBigGreen They replaced Natsume with Sakurai since Natsume was busy with Boggiebob and Others so Bandai and TV Tokyo couldn’t wait his return since they were afraid the series lose its popularity too.


VejituhBigGreen | Nov 30, 2019 4:08 PM
Chikara Sakurai is a terrible and awful director. It's just unforgivable that they replaced someone good as Shingo Natsume is, with a so awful director like Sakurai. One Punch Man is just ruined in the hands of this guy.

1. lack of talent animator and just only one guy doing the best part is
@jumpaoiki
2. lack conection with talent animator, cause rarely doing the action
anime
3. the studio doesnt have the passion, cannot compare to action

Lmao todd - you've been angrily replying here to every single person with criticism since way back when OPM S2 started airing, desperately trying to defend this guy. I remember you were here even back then.
Take his dick out your mouth and breathe a bit, yeah?

Chikara Sakurai is an awful director, which is pretty clearly illustrated by just how awfully handled everything was in the season. He was in charge, it was his vision, and just about every single creative decision taken ended up being widely-disliked and idiotic. He should be criticized. Stop diminishing and insulting the role of the director by desperately making up all these wacky excuses for why nothing was his fault, and how he had "no actual role" in the matter.

That would definitely offend this man whose arse you love licking so much. Instead of the excuses, if you want to defend this man try actually arguing the points people are making here. No "he tried his best you dumb haterz", no unspecific remarks about "the working conditions", no "you should thank him for even trying you ungrateful hater" (...who at least respects this man and his art enough to hold it to a standard. Any standard...)
I'm going to take a guess and say you haven't done this once since you started spamming this comment section because you can't... You're just one of those sad franchise fanboys who can't tolerate people talking badly about the thing you love so much, not anywhere or about any part.

Deep down you probably do realize that all these "haters"--who for some odd reason criticize the same things over and over--may just have a point with their criticism--but you just can't accept it because, for whatever sad reason, you've made this franchise (and probably others in the medium as well) such an integral part of your identity that you can't help but take the criticism personally. You feel like it's an insult directed specifically towards you.


todd2580 | Jul 31, 2019 7:55 AM
@Fax001s yeah i agree here he did his best people are just harsh at this point


N0pe- | Jul 30, 2019 9:24 AM
