Itagaki Shin Fired From Basquash Director

The guy below me does not know what he is talking about. Itagaki is legit and he is a very fast storyboarder which is why he storyboards a lot, not because he's a hog.

Also Cop Craft had a problem with scheduling, not budget. People gotta stop with the budget meme. It's 2020.


Yugesai | Apr 21, 5:04 AM
This guy takes projects with HUGE potentials and squanders them. He removes all substance and makes the anime generic.

Sure sooner or later he does something remotely fine like Cop Craft but looking at his other works:
Wolverine, Sengoku Basara, Devil May Cry, the butchered Rosario to Vampire and the abhorent Berserk adaptation you can see that Shin Itagaki is a hack as director.

He should stop hogging all the positions and trying to push his incompetence on the viewers.
Just look at it, he is trying to do all these things alone: script, storyboard, episodes directing, animation directing as well as taking key animations.
So the still frames in Cop Craft are what he calls "key animations"? Where did the budget go?

He is a hack.

This guy is a lad with a lot of passion but it's a shame everyone will remember him as "The Berserk 2016 Director" when he has a lot of good stuff under his belt too.


Jack0101 | Feb 23, 7:50 PM
Nice work with Berserk! If possible avoid too much 3D next time :)


pilobacon | Dec 4, 2019 4:44 PM
Also give him better schedules, holy shit. I feel so bad for this guy because I know he can do great things if given the resources.


Goochi | Oct 30, 2019 7:15 AM
someone give this guy more animators jesus*


josueuler | Oct 13, 2019 12:28 PM
dude was just not the man for the job


todd2580 | Oct 5, 2019 10:08 AM
@Goochi you mean animators because he said that the industry is having a shortage of animators


AltoRoark | Sep 30, 2019 8:21 PM
Many thanks for Cop Craft, my man. You may be too ambitious for your own good at times, but the passion you show is a delight to see in this industry.


Goochi | Sep 6, 2019 8:16 PM
someone give this guy a budget jesus
