Fans received the quote from the CEO with sarcastic comments, in light of the recent tweet made by the animation director of Attack On Titan: The Final Season, Teruyuki Oomine.

Oomine had revealed that he “had finally been able to go home after three days .”

Fans looked at the past records of the company environment and the feedbacks from the employees and retorted with their opinions on them to Manabu’s statement.

In fact, some netizens went up against the original uploader @kylescouter for advocating Otsuka’s views.

MAPPA Co., Ltd. is a Japanese animation studio. “MAPPA” is an acronym for Maruyama Animation Produce Project Association.

The studio was founded on June 14, 2011, by Masao Maruyama, a co-founder and former producer of Madhouse, at the age of 70.

The studio has produced numerous popular anime works including Kids on the Slope, Terror in Resonance, Yuri!!! on Ice, In This Corner of the World, Zombieland Saga, Dororo, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Attack on Titan The Final Season.
