“I wanted to have a house for our office.”
We visited yururito inc. and wrote an article a while ago. We heard they moved their office, so we visited them again. Surprisingly, it was a house!
What’s yururito inc.?
“WEB × ANIMATION × MOVIE × APPLICATION.”
The customers usually need to look several companies to cover these services. However, yururito does all of these services as one company. Furthermore, there are talented members with different skills and the synergies between members create something unique and special. Not surprisingly, they are getting busier and busier these days.
Now, let me introduce their brand-new cool office.
Visiting new office!
This is the meeting room. Nicely bright.
Mr. Kaneda (the CEO) and Mr. Chihara (the producer) kindly welcomed us again. The panel of Mr. Kaneda (the picture above) was smiling just as we visited last time. Mr. Kaneda himself doesn’t have this much craggy face. He is a nice and kind man. I realized that I forgot to take photos of them a few days after this visit.
Mr. Chihara is also a custodian of this house.
It seems like he can do everything in this office.
This is their main working place!
First of all, this is one of their shelves. I felt their philosophy from these cats. I wonder what the fish behind the cats means.
Makoto Kaneko was placed very front. (even in front of LiSA) He was my No.2 batter in the video game I used to play.
The animator, the web engineer, the application engineer, and the movie editor are all in the same space in which they can easily communicate. This borderless environment is one of the special features of yururito.
The animator and the engineer can easily talk and exchange their ideas.
I am personally making animation and running the web media. When I face some technical issues, my only choice is to ask Google. I am so jealous of their working environment.
I wonder how the web engineers think about anime and live-action productions and how animators and movie editors think about the website production. “What if we do this?” “This way could be more interesting.” Since they don’t know each other’s area, they can discuss freely and combine their ideas to approach something they can’t reach alone.
I wonder how unique the contents produced by this synergy will be.
The man in the right corner is the CEO, Mr. Kaneda. He is getting busy. I hope he won’t lose his time to “yururito.”
There is a garden outside the working place. It is a nice warm place in the sun.
Naoya (our overseas public relations) is sitting comfortably. It’s quiet enough to relax.
Shizuku’s LINE stickers are on sale!
These are LINE stickers created by the producer of yururito, Mr. Chihara. So high quality! I personally like the one with the cat dancing. (I don’t know when to use it, but I like this kind of stickers.)
You can get them here.
I would like to thank everyone from yururito for welcoming us. It was a wonderful visit. Thank you so much!
