For those who don't know who he is, he was the animator for Macross and the masterpiece original Gundam.
>Interviewer: So we're planning a page for fans who don't know you (Itano) or the original Macross.
>Itano: Macross Ace (the magazine this is in) is a damned bishoujo character magazine isn't it? I call it retard, though. Retard character moe magazine. I think Macross (the original) was popular because of its balance, 1/3 each of cute girls, robots, and songs. But now they say mecha won't sell, robots won't sell, so they turn it into a character-based anime AND they want the fujoshi. I hate the stench of that sort of thing and so actually don't want to be in any magazine articles related to that bullshit, but I said I'd cooperate if they let me badmouth shit and here I am.
>Interviewer: I... see... (tears)
>Itano: I DID watch all of Macross F. It's not fair to badmouth something without seeing it (chuckle).
So, like, there's one bit where a sniper in space mounts himself on an asteroid, right? But by doing so half his field of vision is gone. And asteroids aren't stationary so his aim is going to be really unstable. And then they use sniper rifles at point blank range? I notice this sort of stuff, you know.
It's well-drawn for a TV show and they were trying, but the relationships were half-assed and the heart of the drama is way too messy. Last time we had Minmei become a human failure, but this time it was the main character (laugh). People who like this rubbish have a totally different sense from me, so I'd really be happier if they didn't know who I was at all (laugh).

Well /a/, it's finally happened.
I went into this series with low expectations and an open mind. I had a good time with it, I like the characters and art, and think it can be sweet, funny, and enjoyable.
However, the latest episode. I...don't think I can continue. I'm normally a very accepting person, I can enjoy straight relationships, yaoi, yuri, traps, age gaps, all of that. But my mind is just making me reject this incest. I can't accept it. It feels wrong.
I don't really understand why I can't accept sibling love, but there you go.
I think I'll just drop it.
Anybody else who feels uncomfortable with this? Like, up to this point the show actually kind of felt wholesome but now, well.
