Sakuga and Crackers

“I can’t stand modern movies. The images are too weird and eccentric for me. “

~ Hayao Miyazaki

Chances are you’ve seen the above cut from Naruto. In fact, I’d be more surprised if you hadn’t. But do you know the name of the animator behind that cut? Do you know what other shows that animator may have worked on? Of course you don’t have to know the who in order to enjoy what the animator intended you as the viewer to enjoy…

– but in my mind, it’s the best kind of ‘thank you’.

Pronounced member of the sakuga community (and I say that as if it stands apart from anime fandom) writer for the Sakuga Blog, Kraker is a walking wealth of knowledge in terms of who drew what. Soft yet well spoken (as many a Brit tends to be), I learned a whole lot in the short time I had talking with him.

Oh, and as promised here’s the opening theme of Might Gaine.
