So first you see this scene and might think, “Aww they’re sleeping together <3 fajlsdfjk So cute. My OTP canon. Yes.” Then you see this:image

You would probably think, “ARGH WHY WOULD YOU GUYS TEASE US LIKE THIS. THEY DON’T NEED TO BE SEPERATED.” Then you notice that the pillow is taken byimage

Here you would think either

or b. VIVIO YOU LITTLE SHIT. WHY YOU GOTTA BE SUCH A COCKBLOCK.

Putting a book together is interesting and exhilarating. It is sufficiently difficult and complex that it engages all your intelligence. It is life at its most free. Your freedom as a writer is not freedom of expression in the sense of wild blurting; you may not let rip. It is life at its most free, if you are fortunate enough to be able to try it, because you select your materials, invent your task, and pace yourself… .

The obverse of this freedom, of course, is that your work is so meaningless, so fully for yourself alone, and so worthless to the world, that no one except you cares whether you do it well, or ever. You are free to make several thousand close judgment calls a day. Your freedom is a by-product of your days’ triviality.

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”

I forgot to mention that The Woman Called Fujiko Mine is one of the most visually striking anime of the past ten years.

Anonymous asked: Because girls never exclude other girls or never exclude guys by claiming "safe space," right? Jesus christ, I get that you have a daughter and you're looking out for her, but that doesn't mean that women have it any worse than guys now that you're focusing on one. Wake the fuck up. What sex drops out of school at great rates? What sex has the highest poverty and suicide rate? What sex is less likely to get into college? Men. So stop being a mouthbreathing white knight.

I love when righteous indignation hides behind anonymity. You poor, poor boy. You are beyond wrong, and that you cannot see why, that you cannot see how the made-up data you cite itself is part of the problem, is part of the bias, only makes me pity you.

You’re a coward.

You’re exactly the problem I’m describing.

And you have no leg to stand on. I am tired of you, I am tired of your type.

Good luck with what I am sure will be a long and miserable life.

Is claiming safe spaces are exclusionary to white guys the new MRA go to or something?

I get it. By blog bringing up the likelihood of self-destructiveness of men, I think what OP is trying to say is that not only do women need a safe space from men, but men also need a safe space from themselves.

4: If you could make a spin-off of any anime, what would it be?

That’s a great question! I have so many ideas. A Mary-Tyler Moore-esque working comedy starring Ukyou from Ranma 1/2. A josei drama series starring a grown up Mako-chan from Hourou Musuko. Hell, the 4-koma sketch comedy adventures of Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Mercury as wife and wife.

38: Name a popular anime you hate

Several here, though probably the one that sticks out most is Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii wake ja nai. Just grossed out by it on soooo many levels.

39: Is there an anime you wish was more popular?

I wish yuri dramas like Aoi Hana and Sasameki Koto got a second season. On a related note, I wish more Josei and Seinen series got adaptations. A anime series of Sekine-kun no Koi or Bonnouji would be great.
