The Rantings of a Production Manager Part 7 (A Mahouka Tale)


[From an anonymous production manager behind Mahouka, in May 2014, following an episode that was poorly received by anime fans on social media.]


Fuck those fuckin’ fans who come out on social media and say they’re anime fans that are supposed to be behind you, rippin’ every fuckin’ thing you do. I’ll tell you one fuckin’ thing, I hope this show gets fuckin’ hotter than shit, just to stuff it up them 3,000 fuckin’ people that watch anime every fuckin’ day, because if they’re the real anime fuckin’ fans, they can kiss my fuckin’ ass right downtown and PRINT IT.


They’re really, really behind you around online…my fuckin’ ass. What the fuck am I supposed to do, go out there and let my fuckin’ PAs get destroyed every day and be quiet about it? For the fuckin’ nickel-dime people who download the episodes from NyaaTorrents? The motherfuckers don’t even work. That’s why they’re on fuckin’ social media. They oughta go out and get a fuckin’ job and find out what it’s like to go out and earn a fuckin’ living. Eighty-five percent of the fuckin’ world is working. The other fifteen percent are watching anime. A fuckin’ playground for the cocksuckers. Rip them motherfuckers. Rip them fuckin’ cocksuckers like the fuckin’ PAs. We got guys bustin’ their fuckin’ ass, and them fuckin’ people boo. And that’s for watching Mahouka? My fuckin’ ass. They talk about the great fuckin’ support the anime gets around here. I haven’t see it this fuckin’ season. Everybody associated with this anime studio has been winners their whole fuckin’ life. Everybody. And the credit is not given in that respect.


Alright, they don’t show because we’re below an 8 on MAL…and unfortunately, that’s the criteria of them dumb fifteen motherfuckin’ percent that come out to watch anime. The other eighty-five percent are earning a living. I tell you, it’ll take more than a 7.3 or 7.8 to destroy the makeup of this studio. I guarantee you that. There’s some fuckin’ pros out there that wanna win. But you’re stuck in a fuckin’ stigma of the fuckin’ Shaft and the Kyoani and the Production I.G an all that cheap shit. It’s unbelievable. It really is. It’s a disheartening fuckin’ situation that we’re in right now. Anybody who was associated with the Aniplex organization four or five years ago that came back and sees the multitude of progress that’s been made will understand that if they’re anime people, that 7.9 doesn’t negate all that work. We got 19 fuckin’ episodes left.


What I’m tryin’ to say is don’t rip them fuckin’ shows out there. Rip the original writer. If you wanna rip somebody, rip their fuckin’ ass. But don’t rip them fuckin’ PAs ’cause they’re givin’ everything they can give. And right now they’re tryin’ to do more than their talent gave ’em, and that’s why we make the simple mistakes. That’s exactly why.
