Jujutsu Kaisen 0 director breaks silence on latest MAPPA criticism

Following the most recent MAPPA critique by a well-known animator, a number of Jujutsu Kaisen employees—including the director of the prequel movie—are speaking out.

The anime industry knows MAPPA, the studio behind Jujutsu Kaisen and many other amazing shows, for overworking its staff. Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 garnered media attention due to its excellent anime adaptation as well as reports of unfavorable working conditions at the studio.

The JJK animators began complaining about the studio overworking them with many last-minute edits while the season was still in progress. Vincent Chansard, an animator from One Piece, also contributed to one episode before he announced he would never again work for MAPPA.

In his latest podcast, he reveals why he wouldn’t work for MAPPA. His comment quickly gathered attention, encouraging other JJK animators to express their opinions on the studio’s insane work schedules. Delve deeper to find out what Jujutsu Kaisen 0 director has to say bout the latest MAPPA criticism.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 director supports latest MAPPA criticism

Animators Dourian Coulon and Vincent Chansard recently attended a podcast where the latter commented: “I don’t want to support a company that ideologically doesn’t care about working conditions. Go asked me, and I like working with him. He also doesn’t want to work anymore for MAPPA.”

Terumi Niishi, the main animator of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, posted: “Ideologically, it is very refreshing.” I believe that the working atmosphere in the anime business would be a little cozier if there were more individuals like him.

The four months it took to create the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is insufficient to complete a full-length film. A movie typically takes two to three years to complete. Niishi continues the conversation by explaining the animation industry’s predicament and claiming that it is related to Japanese politics.

“Halfway through, I realized there was nothing I could say to convince these guys,” he said. Ultimately, though, I was attempting to do the best I could for my future offspring, and that is how things have turned out.
