The first part of the Harada bar series Crush brother Director Masahiro Sakurai has been uploaded. A lot of attention is focused on the person Sakurai, not his work.

In a part of his chat with Katsuhiro Harada (also known as the director of Tekken), Sakurai talked about the memes that featured him on the Internet and how he was not always a fan of them. He also surpassed the use of his “icons” to make jokes on social media. This is exactly what he wants to say:

“I feel… I want them to stop using my face or icons to express what they want to say. Even if it is a joke. You should not use the power of others for your own principles.”

An example that Harada showed (shown in the picture below) is an emoji package with Sakurai’s face written on it, and it says “Never ask me anything again”-Sakurai clarified that he had never really said this before. talk.

Harada also described that Sakurai fans often have a habit of grabbing every piece of information about Sakurai and not letting go. In response, Sakurai has a simple response:

“Give me a break.” [laughs]

Although Sakurai doesn’t like this behavior, he also understands that there is really no way he can appear in public:

“It’s about everyone’s role. Some people have to appear in the media because this is their role. If you do, it’s important to do your best. This is the same for me.”
