Amazing guy! I watched many of his works & all of them were very good to great, especially Psycho Pass & Fate Zero. Hopefully PP season 2 won't disappoint ^^

@Kaioshin_Sama Nice summation. I agree with his execution needing more attention but I disagree that "his best work might already be behind him" - let's wait to cast such judgement, he hasn't "Urobutcher" much yet...only the potential that we as fans can observe and examine. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt, he still has much to offer.

Fate/Zero and Psycho Pass, 'Nuff' said.


Kaioshin_Sama | 04-04-14, 10:52 AM
I'm starting to think his best work might already be behind him and that he's kind of sold out in trying to write in line with the image his fans have of him rather than what is best for the stories he's telling.

In particular the final arcs of pretty much all his series in the last couple of years have kind of tripped themselves up by trying to be too "Urobuchi" and end up just being kind of poor on proper exposition/execution/pacing and end up being needlessly convoluted such that in the end they just feel more simplistic and unsatisfying rather than thought provoking. I still think the best written conclusion to any series he's written recently is Psycho Pass cause while it still has it's share of problems albeit minor in comparison to the likes of Rebellion and Gargantia it also has the most clarity involved and resolves the character dilemmas in a way that makes sense while still being morally dubious which is probably the framing device he works best with and ought to be known for more than as "Urobutcher".

I don't know, this guy just has some problems he needs to work out with where he wants his place to be in the industry and how to pace a story at times and I feel his writing style is a bit of a double edged sword as well since it often sacrifices suspension of disbelief in order to achieve a specific goal and audience reaction. Still one of the more interesting writers in the anime scene though.
