Those of us in animation always gripe that the rest of Hollywood doesn’t care or know the first thing about animated films. There are tons of anecdotal stories to support this position, but finally, we’ve got some definitive proof. And if you think Hollywood doesn’t understand animation, it’s even worse than you could imagine.
TL note: I found Araki’s talks in JoJonium to be particularly fascinating and shed new light on the characters so I decided to translate them. Every effort was made to capture the meaning, tone and diction of the original text. Enjoy!
TL note: part two of my series of translations of Araki’s musings on character creation. Part one (Jonathan Joestar) can be found here. I was blown away by the interest in the first part so I’ll keep on going! I also love reading everyone’s comments/tags.
