OMG WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT HTIS
YES YESYES YOU SEE THE THING
Forget that Japanifornia comic and look at this; the artist clearly knows what’s up.
SAYO YAMAMOTO (山本 沙代 Yamamoto Sayo; born April 13, 1977/ age 36) is a Japanese anime director. She is known for directing the critically acclaimed anime series Michiko to Hatchin and Lupin III: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine. After graduating from the College of Art and Design in Tokyo, she began work at Studio Madhouse at age 25.
During her time at the College of Art and Design, Yamamoto focused her attention on animation, as she felt less interested in the other things she was being taught. Her student project was an animation about samurai using actor, and frequent Akira Kurosawa collaborator, Toshiro Mifune as an inspiration. While in the process of looking for a job after graduation, she showed this work to director Satoshi Kon (R.I.P).
Enthusiastic about her potential, Kon intended to hire her to work on his second feature Millennium Actress, but studio politics eventually caused her to leave the project.
She had her debut at Studio Madhouse working on the X television series headed by Madhouse director Yoshiaki Kawajiri. Soon after, she would have her first collaboration with directors Takeshi Koike and Katsuhito Ishii on the original video animation Trava: Fist Planet. It was during her time at Madhouse that she began her work on anime opening and ending animations, which she would go on to direct for many other projects.
Yamamoto has stated that it was during her work on Samurai Champloo where she felt she was first able to truly express herself. Samurai Champloo also marks the first time she worked with frequent collaborators, director Shinichirō Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop) and writer Dai Satō (Cowboy bebop, eureka Seven, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex).
During her time working on Samurai Champloo at Studio Manglobe, she was offered the chance to direct a project with full creative control. At the time, she was busy with work on Champloo, so she thought about what kind of project she wanted to direct for about a year. During that time, she took a trip to Brazil where she found the inspiration for her first series Michiko to Hatchin. The series, about an ex-convict and a young girl in search of the girl’s father, was released in 2008.
At the press conference where Yamamoto unveiled the series, she said she wanted women especially to watch the series.
"Our time slot was late at night, so office ladies would be returning home, and worn out from the day, they could have a beer and watch it."
After a few years of working on storyboards and art for other projects, including movies Redline and Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance, she was approached by a producer to create a new Lupin III series, with full creative control. It was Yamamoto’s own idea to have the series take place before the start of the 1971 Lupin series, directed by Masaaki Ōsumi, and to have character Fujiko Mine in the starring role.
Her most recent works was director of episode 2 of the wildly popular Space Dandy : “The Search For The Phantom Space Ramen, Baby”
Part II of my other “if Holly was the main character of Stardust Crusaders” comic. I think she would have been really strong if it was to protect Jotaro!!
Desde criança eu sempre quis ter um Game Boy Color e depois um Game Boy Advance para jogar Pokémon que sempre foi meu sonho de consumo, mas videogame sempre foi algo bem caro e eu já tinha o PS1 na época, meus pais nunca compraram para mim até que me desinteressei por comprar portáteis, mas a chama reacendeu com Pokémon X e Y e finalmente pude comprar meu primeiro portátil (Brick Game não conta), o lindo 3DS.
"OK, Mas o que isso tem a ver com Bravely Default?" Nada.
Enfim, não sou o tipo de pessoa que gastaria mais de R$100 em um jogo qualquer. Bravely Default foi um jogo que quando anunciaram, passou despercebido por mim, só fui conhecer ele melhor a partir da demo na E-Shop. Bom, Final Fantasy V é um dos meus JRPGs favoritos, quando joguei a demo de Bravely Default eu pirei na hora, todos os elementos de um dos meus jogos favoritos estava lá, e ainda o sistema de Jobs, maior e melhor trabalhado. Eu joguei muito aquela demo, após completá-la em umas 7 horas, estava querendo mais, não tinha como dar errado, eu comprei o 3DS exatamente por causa desse estilo de jogo. Antes de jogar a demo, estava pensando em comprar Yoshi’s New Island, mas depois de uma dúvida
não tão cruel entre Yoshi e Bravely Default acabei optando por comprar Bravely Default.
É isso aí, molecada, hora de falar do jogo.
I cant believe Otacon is real
thispleasestormod linked me to this and it’s clearly the most important video I’ll watch all day.
We’re getting a localization!
Shu Takumi’s new Ace Attorney for the 3DS has been revealed, and it’s a doozy: Dai Gyakuten Saiban - Naruhodou Ryuunosuke no Bouken (Grand Ace Attorney - The Adventures of Naruhodou Ryuunosuke).
Set in the Meiji period of Japan, it follows Naruhodou Ryuunosuke, who is described as Phoenix’s ‘forefather’. Ryuunosuke is described as having a burning sense of justice and being danger-prone - just like Nick. Things don’t change after a century!
