What You Need to Know:
- In case you missed it, Kemono Friends shook the anime world to it's core. It was incredibly popular in Japan among otaku when it aired, and then Kadokawa re-shot the opening for children, airing the show in a morning slot ensuring that the show exploded in popularity due to all of the children watching. The director, Tatsuki, was gaining fame over it until one day, when Kadokawa decided to remove him from the show he created much to the shock of the director who did not know until he was fired, along with many other staff members. The whole sordid affair was covered by ANN and you can read more about their detailed reporting about it here.
- In the meantime, Tatsuki has not been slowing down and in fact, he created a new anime called Keifuku-san. Now, the anime is only 5 minutes long. However, he tweeted out last night that he was shocked at the amazon sales ranking for Japan. Why? Because in the Anime DVD/Blu-ray category, Keifuku-san is currently #1. Not only is it #1, it's beating both editions of Fate/Stay Night [Heaven's Feel] 1. Pressage Flower.
- He tweeted out, "Huh? What is this Amazon? A bug? It is because it's a passing moment late at night...? My anime is here...? To all of you who clicked the button, thank you so much..." Check out the tweet below.
Yay! I am so glad that he is still getting the recognition that he deserves!
He deserves it after what Kadokawa did to him. Way to go Tatsuki!
