  1. Man, what happened to turn us all against Yuri Kuma Arashi? That was a perfectly fine show with a compelling narrative, interesting themes and more creativity in its proverbial pinky finger than most anime have in their entire bodies.

    Sure, it had its issues, but to speak of it like it’s some kind of embarrassing blemish on Ikuhara’s otherwise spotless record seems like far too harsh a judgement.

    Also, can you really say the guy fails more often than he succeeds when two out of the three shows he’s directed so far have been bona fide classics?

    • Yurikuma was fine, and I kind of have mixed feelings about Utena, We’ll have to get you on for the first look episode

  2. I saw some of the Japanese PROMARE marketing material today; it had プロメア written on top of the romanised title, so I suspect that the “mare” is pronounced as the word for female horse rather than the Latin for sea.
