We’re back with another lengthy Sarazanmai piece that focuses on Kunihiko Ikuhara’s unique storytelling, including shortcomings that the team is aware of and is attempting to address in an interesting, thematically-appropriate way. As usual, plenty of production & staff details and all sorts of fun speculation too!

Sarazanmai‘s wild ride continues, which means it’s time to learn more about Kunihiko Ikuhara‘s creative mindset and the perfectly fitting team he assembled for the second episode’s needs.
Sarazanmai marks the return of Kunihiko Ikuhara, one of anime’s most brilliant and socially conscious directors.

One of the keys to Kunihiko Ikuhara’s success is his ability to surround himself by creators who fit his aesthetic but also thematic needs, no matter the artistic field those people belong to. So while his upcoming TV series Sarazanmai is still a ways to go, there’s a lot we can infer already, and much to analyze about the way he operates.
