[VRAINS] Director Change

The chief Director for VRAINS has apparently changed from Episode 14 onwards.

As of Episode 14: Hosoda, Masahiro has apparently stepped down from the role of Director. Taking over is:

浅野 勝也 Asano Katsuya

Notably he hasn’t takeen up the Director’s chair before, but has been animation director for select episodes of shows such as:

  • Binchou-tan
  • Potemayo
  • Kimikiss Pure Rouge
  • Kemeko Deluxe!
  • Squid Girl
  • Ro-Kyu-Bu!
  • Medaka Box
No reason for the Director change has been provided, whether Hosoda simply left or was removed for unsatisfactory work, but with the change, it is noted Episode 14 had much more diverse backgrounds as well as more flexible Link Summoning animation, so it could be speculated this could be related to the change of who’s filling the Director’s seat.
