Hajime Yatate

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Hajime Yatate" (矢立 肇, Yatate Hajime) is a pseudonym for the collective contributions of the Sunrise animation staff.[1]


"Hajime Yatate" is considered to be named after a quote of Matsuo Bashō's Oku no Hosomichi:

是を矢立の初めとして、行く道なほ進まず (Kore o yatate no hajime toshite, Ikumichi naho susumazu)
This was the first time I used my travel writing implements, and I was still reluctant to venture farther.[2]
