Bahi JD is one of the better known foreigners working in the anime industry, and for good reason; he’s one of the stars of the webgen phenomenon, as an animator who gained notoriety through work posted online and was able to kick-start his professional career based off that momentum. Rather recently he had his debut of sorts as director, as he handled the spectacular opening sequence of ATOM: The Beginning and its more laid-back ending. We reached out to him and he kindly accepted to answer our questions. Since his career as a whole is very well documented, we focused on his work on this opening in particular: how it came to be, its unusual production process that united some of the most brilliant talent in the anime industry, and Bahi’s personal approach towards it all.
We’re back yet again to highlight the most promising episodes of ongoing TV series based off their staff, including the lineups published on official magazines as well as a bit of insider info. Some action series like HeroAca and Rage of Bahamut keep on benefitting from solid schedules, and there’s also a couple of very surprising creators showing up in other series within the next weeks.
Back in December, we wrote a post detailing HeroAca‘s production, the issues the staff suffered throughout the animation process but also the highlights of their work. Wouldn’t it be a shame if we didn’t follow that up with weekly posts for the sequel? Fret not, it’s time to start covering the return of BONES’ Hero Academia.
We welcome every anime season by highlighting all the upcoming projects that don’t simply have an appealing premise, but also the talented staff and positive surrounding circumstances to bring it all to fruition. Spring is going to be quite the heavy season, so let’s waste no time!
