Who is Kenji Itoso?

Kenji Itoso : 糸曽賢志(いとそけんじ)
Animation Director, Dean and Professor at Osaka Seikei University, Faculty of Arts.

After mentoring under director Hayao Miyazaki as a teenager, I worked on 'Dreaming Machine' by the late Satoshi Kon. I have contributed to numerous projects including 'Yu-Gi-Oh!', 'Attack on Titan', 'Fire Force', 'Fruits Basket', 'Macross Δ', and music videos for YOASOBI. While actively planning original works, I also focus on providing practical experiences to students, particularly at arts universities and vocational schools. My directorial work in the 'Santa Company' series utilizes production materials for educational purposes, creating a unique approach. Additionally, I have a deep expertise in crowdfunding, having raised a total of 850 million yen. Currently, I am directing multiple TV series anime titles while engaged in educational endeavors.

Let's take a look at some actual samples from the anime!

I believe Sozoroo is an amazing site for anime and manga artists Site, system, teachers, teaching method, active and supportive team, everything is amazing and perfect so that you will never get tired of learning. I am very much looking forward to Sozoroo's future plans.
Before taking the Sozoroo's CAC course, I had no clear direction in the anime industry. The course systematically covered the A to Z of anime production, sparking a strong interest in animation for me. Through practical exercises, I discovered my strengths and passion lie in animation. Now, I am working towards my dream as an animator with determination. Without the CAC course, I might have never found my true calling.
YUKO Yamada (Aspiring Animator)
For someone uncertain about their future career like me, the Sozoroo's CAC course was a beacon of guidance. It allowed me to explore various aspects of the anime industry, captivating me with the section on scenario writing. The course enabled me to acquire essential skills for a scenario writer, from basic story structure to character development, clarifying my vision for the future. I am now embarking on my path as a scenario writer, grateful for the course laying the groundwork.
Junko Ito (Aspiring Scenario Writer)
Facing uncertainty about my path in the anime industry, the Sozoroo's CAC course broadened my perspective. Experiencing the multifaceted process of anime production, I was particularly drawn to the importance and allure of production. The course extensively covered knowledge vital for producers, from project management to fundraising and team building. Had it not been for this course, I might have never discovered my potential as a producer. I am now actively pursuing this dream, inspired and motivated by what I've learned.
