Looks like somebody on their social media team messed up as I don't see the post anymore. Guess it was deleted?

I'm curious how the crowd who complained about that other Crunchy original will respond to this. Collaborating with a prominent Japanese artist is pretty significant.

What a waste of my money. Should have used it to invest in a Haikyuu!! season 4 instead.

I don't think this is anything major - something involving Crunchyroll-hime that could range from a music video to a series of three-minute shorts.

Well the designs don't make me want to stab my eyes out, so it's off to a better start.. but we don't know what it is yet.

(Personally I always thought the Crunchyroll girl looked like a rip off of Cure Sunny Laughing )

Thanks to all who pointed out the Twitter post is no longer available. I took a screenshot of the video before it was taken down, so I've added that image to the article and removed the now-deleted Twitter post.

A vague tweet with a single animator doesn't provide much information and it might just turn out to be a short video. There is a small chance that it could be about one of the original shows that they are working on though I would be somewhat surprised if they announced it this way.

Is this Kou Yoshinari related to Yoh Yoshinari, the director of the Little Witch Academia films?

He's his older brother. He got Yoh Yoshinari his first job in the industry back in the 90s at Madhouse before he promptly quit to go work at Gainax on Evangelion. Laughing
As such, Kou is often called Aninari(big bro nari) and Yoh is called Otounari(little bro nari) within the sakuga/animation production community.

Kou Yoshinari is also probably one of the most talented animators in the industry right now, as far as I know. His involvement in anything, even a short, is cause for great interest.

It doesn't matter. The anti-industry haters and saboteurs will never run out of excuses to insult or "boycott" CR.
