A TikTok content creator known as “theabsurdistotaku” recently gained a lot of attention on Twitter due to a viral video. However, the reason behind its popularity is rather worrying. It appears that in the video, She presented incorrect information regarding the animation of Jujutsu Kaisen season 2 By Studio MAPPA.

On Her TikTok, She conducted a comparison between the manga scene and the anime adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2. In this comparison, She questioned the changes made by the animation studio, MAPPA, where they apparently changed some “iconic panels” from the manga to the anime version.

According to Her account, the TikToker claimed that She engaged in discussions with the animators and meticulously examined the anime episode frame by frame. She asserted that the reasons behind the change in anime adaptation were threefold: AI implementation, budget constraints, and time constraints.

To support her claim about AI involvement, She cites a specific scene familiar to those familiar with anime. In this particular scene, a certain character’s “2 faces” were noticeable, and She attributed it to the use of AI. According to her explanation, the AI technology attempted to bridge the transition between the two scenes, resulting in the presence of both faces in that sequence.

However, the information she provided was incorrect. The phenomenon she refers to as the “ghosting” effect is actually an intentional blurring or double imaging effect used on Japanese television to prevent epileptic seizures, particularly in response to certain flashing lights or patterns.

This safety measure is implemented to protect viewers who are sensitive to light and may have seizures caused by certain visual stimuli. The “ghosting” effect is part of Japan’s broadcasting regulations and is in no way related to the use of artificial intelligence to create images.

Additionally, she made other false claims, including asserting that most of MAPPA’s animations are driven by AI. However, this claim is baseless and lacks evidence. It is important to note that while animation studios like MAPPA rely on skilled human animators and artists to create their content, and while AI may be used for certain tasks, it does not replace the essential role of human creativity and expertise in the animation process.

In response to the backlash she received about her video, she posted a follow-up video but chose to block comments and maintained her opinion about MAPPA’s animation despite the lack of evidence to support her claims.
