Reception[edit]

The anime adaptation of My Sister, My Writer is universally panned by anime fans and anime critics alike for its subpar animation quality. Brian Ashcraft of Kotaku described the show as one of the most notable production disasters of 2018.[17] According to the credits of episode 2, the most likely reason for the series's deteriorating animation quality is due to Buyu being in charge of key animation as opposed to the main NAZ studio. Buyu is a production company that was only in charge of in-between animation and finish animation in episode 1. Additionally, multiple individual staffers were credited with key animation rather than single companies.[18]
