- Some of the highlights of the interview are beow:
- What was it like working as an animator on the Demon Slayer’s movie, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
- Difference between working on a movie and an anime TV. For example, the movie pays more than double per cut than a TV anime.
- Even though he was one of the animators for Dragon Ball Super: Broly he didn’t know that the villain was Broly and details about the plot. He knew once the trailer was published, so he knew at the same time as everyone else.
- It’s possible to work in a Japanese animation studio without an animation degree but learning animation outside Japan might be a waste of time since you need to learn everything from scratch if you want to be an animator in Japan. Overseas and Japanese animation styles are completely different and you learn almost everything from scratch.
- How UFOTABLE, MAPPA, and Toei Animation contact him to work as an animator on their projects.
