The director of Vinland Saga launches harsh criticism of the entire anime industry


Shuhei Yabuta who is in charge as director of the anime adaptation of the manga Vinland Saga 2 I was shocked by an animated sequence made by a fan of One Punch Man. Where I take the opportunity to give some critical words in Twitter towards the entire anime industry after seeing magnificent quality work, and according to him “Japanese animation is not creative at all at this time.” Here his words:

The standard of “satisfaction” that fans want. (This is not about drawing skills.) Our job is to create new experiences and experiences on the final screen to increase satisfaction. We’ve been doing the same thing for 30 or 40 years, not because it’s the right thing to do, but as a result of misguided craftsmanship and individualism.

I’m afraid I should add, just to be clear, that I’m not talking about One Punch Man, but the Japanese animation industry as a whole. It is that the Japanese animation industry is not creative at all at present, and that it is necessary to realize and strive to create an environment in which new challenges can be taken on in order to develop the ability to win in the market in general.

Animation production is a circus, not a contest of individual artists. If you can’t share a vision and aim for high quality, you should go it alone, without using titles. I’m sick of old people who just complain and don’t move forward, and kids who are blinded by the need to collect hearts, so when my current job settles down, I want to try a few things.

harsh words made by Shuhei Yabuta director of viland saga, who wants the industry to renew itself by giving better quality and creativity in its animated products. Now the sequence that impressed him was made by the user serc who is a big fan of One Punch Man and who had the inspiration to animate the scene where Saitama Y Garou In his God form he begins a combat, but before colliding his fists Blast He teleports them into space to save the planet due to the magnitude of power they both have.

In conclusion, the director only wants the good for the anime industry in Japan, which hopefully what plans he will have after he finishes his work with vinland saga, as he wants to try some new things to improve the industry.

It should be noted that the second season of Vinland Saga is scheduled to air on January 9, 2023 in Japan. Remembering that the animation studioMAPwill replace “Wit Studio” and will handle the production of the second season.

synopsis of Vinland Saga:

Defying the rigid Viking laws and despite being a great warrior, Thors decides to flee from the bloody life he led with his family. Upon being discovered, he will be pursued during his sea voyage by a mercenary named Askeladd, eventually falling into an ambush along with his expedition. He will win the battle against his attackers, albeit at a high price: Thors will give his life so that the rest of the crew, including his son Thorfinn, may live.

From that moment Ahorfinn swears revenge. However, he will be caught by Askeladd and forced to be a crew member on his ship. But he will still have hope.
