They believe that Jujutsu Kaisen was once again left without a director

In many previous articles we have already talked about the reputation of MAPPA studios within the anime industry. While praised for its blockbusters like "Jujutsu Kaisen" and "Shingeki no Kyojin," the studio has gone through a considerable amount of controversy related to the exploitation of its animators, which in turn stem from the studio exceeding its production capacity by taking on more projects than it is capable of doing.

This is precisely why every time someone connected to the studio posts something it goes viral, especially when it has something to do with their work, and that is precisely what happened recently with Shota "Gosso" Goshozono, who was in charge of directing the second season of "Jujutsu Kaisen" on MAPPA.

The director took to Twitter to report that he was looking for work, and considering that MAPPA has lost important directing and producing members such as Seeong-Hu Park, Ryu Nakayama, Makoto Kimura, and Fuko Noda in recent years, it didn't take long for fans to think that Goshozono had also left the company:

  • "I've created an account on Twitter. They will be able to send me anime-related job applications or contact me through this account. Sorry for this sudden announcement. If they're not interested, they can ignore it. However, if you have any job offers for Shota Goshozono, please send them to the email listed in this profile," the director wrote.

Words are enough to believe that the director has lost his job after leaving MAPPA studios and that he is now looking for an opportunity. This was immediately shared on social media to inform that "Jujutsu Kaisen had been left without a director again", and considering that the third season is already announced, this did nothing but worry fans of the franchise.

However, nothing could be further from the truth. It turns out that Goshozono is looking for some work outside of the anime industry, since he currently has his hands full in that business. All of this turned out to be a confusion stemming from the fact that the director did not know how to explain himself in his initial post, and also that it took him eight hours to publish a clarification:

  • "Disclaimer: Shota Goshozon's employment status is basically full. If there are any interesting outside jobs, such as magazines, that you can do in your spare time for a change of scenery, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are currently unable to accept anime-related works. If you have any work related to TWICE, please contact us," he clarified.

While the community is always on call to crucify MAPPA studios for the slightest reason, this was not the case. Still, directors really need to improve their writing skills to avoid these kinds of misunderstandings that get them in trouble as well.
