A few days ago Kojima put up a poll on Twitter asking what the next episode should be about, an a large majority voted for the option to talk about this past E3. So we can expect to hear more about that.

Also, they will feature fan creations in this episode:


Kojima also posted a poll on Twitter, asking which HideoTube episode we liked the most (or expect to like the most, in the case of the E3 episode).

    Ohhh sweet, this episode will be awesome :).

    • Oh my effin goodnes <3

      I loved the original Berserk anime, I hope this one is as good, thanks Gatsu :D. I know what I'll do after work, ha

      • Gatsu

        Np <3. I think it was awesome first episode and I did enjoy it a lot, hope you enjoy it too :D. But some long time fans didn't like it at all and already seem to hate the new anime lol, because they don't like the mix of 2nd and 3d animation. I do myself always prefer the original anime drawing style instead of 3d, but if it's done well I'm okey with it :).

        The 3 movies are awesomely done too imo.

        The new anime also apparently skipped the Lost Children arc that happened in manga. Which is a shame because it is a great arc imo. But who knows maybe they show it as some flashback later :).

        I think many fans judge the new anime too soon when there has been only one episode. I am just happy that Berserk continues after years and I hope they will keep it bloody in the upcoming parts, because that's what Berserk must be :).

        • I admit I was strongly turned off by the amount of 3D in the movies from the clips I saw, and I haven’t yet watched it partially because that (and because of lack of time).

          But I agree people are always very eager to judge everything. I am pretty sure I’ve already said it during the Microtransactions outrage, that majority of people has an intrinsic need to hold an opinion, the stronger the better. Oh well :).

    Nice! Kenji Yano (aka Hitori Nojima) the co-writer for Death Stranding will be in another episode of Hideotube! 🙂
    Hopefully in future episodes we will see other members of Kojima Productions like Yoji Shinkawa, Mark Cerny, etc.

    On another note, Kris Zimmerman (English Voice Director of all MGS games) posted this a few days ago 😉 :


    I don’t know if this image is related to motion capture for Death Stranding or is for a completely different game, but I hope she gets to work with Kojima again. 🙂

    Although it’s interesting that she seems to be working with motion capture because she mainly works with voice acting.

    • Well the industry is moving towards performance capture rather than just voice acting, so it could be. Would be nice if KojiPro works with her, she has done great work for Metal Gear in the past.

    • Mark Cerny is not really a member of Kojima Productions. His current position for DS is still unknown, although so far he is a technical producer, not a director for a game. Maybe he will be involved in the project till the end. I don’t know, but we will see.

      • Lamp123

        Mark Cerny’s position sounds like a 3rd party consultant.

        Could act more as a kind of primary interface between Hideo and PlayStation tools + R&D Dept. whether HW or PS-SDK… Indeed blurry..

    Boss also posted another poll on his JP account 3hrs ago. Since it does not show up on the EN yet, here is the raw google translation (guess where my vote goes) :

    We are currently preparing the 4th of ” Hideo Tube ( Hidechu ) ” . Delivery is promoting in the next week to target . By the way , is this up to times , which times ( theme ) was interesting ? Or do you expect ?

    1 – 2015 Best Movie (23% right now)
    2 – movie introduction (13%)
    3 – Game On Introduction (23%)
    4 – E3 feedback report ( undelivered ) (41%)


    • The Game On episode was the best so far. Hopefully the new one will be even better.

          Why in silence ?? HueHueHue ??

  • So the Hideotube eps are in Japanese, right? Do they add the English subtitles themselves or do the fans make another video with the subtitles or how does it work?
