I was just trying to figure out how to to do basic accompaniment in 8-bit style music, but then I slapped a melody over it for some reason.
- is a pacifist
- is a pacifist who has been openly critical of the actions of both his home country and the United States during war, to the point that he famously refused to go to the US to accept his Academy Award for Spirited Away because he disapproves of the actions the United States has taken during the War on Terror
- has been loudly and openly critical of the state of Japan’s animation industry, specifically about the fetishization of young female characters and the failings of made-by-otaku-for-otaku anime
- and despite all this the Zen Pencils guy decided that Miyazaki was the perfect person for the role needed to fill for a character who would design a giant robot with a Roosevelt quote emblazoned on it for the purpose of fighting a personified avatar for media criticism
- and i think that’s kind of beautiful
It pains me to openly disrespect or belittle the work of any artist, for any reason, but god damn if this comic making the rounds isn’t one fat, steaming globule of trite, patronizing horseshit and I really need to vent my resentment of it all at once.
Bringing this back because Zen Pencils is currently doing a story arc where the literal bile of all those mean old trolls who criticize art (i.e. his critics) merges into a giant monster that says “#HATE” on it and I’m just proud to have in any small way contributed to something really, really important like a giant monster that says “#HATE” on it, y’know?
GO GO GO
HE’S STILL DRAWING ZEN PENCILS THOUGH SO OBVIOUSLY YOU MISSED ONE HON TURN BACK AROUND
