Wait, what? After seven years he's retiring just like that? Why?

My guess is, the business aspect of anime production that comes with being the president of his own studio wore him out and he wants to retreat back to an animation focus.

Remember, this is him retiring from a specific position, not the industry outright.

Science Saru's output in the last five to ten years was insane. I hope Yuasa gets a well deserved rest and a much needed focus on animation again.

I imagine he's completely exhausted at this point with all the films and shows Science Saru has put out.
Hope he does well on his break.

He deserves a nice long break after putting out so much work in such a short period of time (under his own company's umbrella no less).

April 1st is a bad day to announce things like that.
