He's overrated. But I have to admit that his work in Fate/Zero, Psycho-pass 1 and Saya no Uta is truly something to be admired.


Zack312 | Jun 29, 7:19 AM
I respect him for doing Fate Zero, but Aldnoah.Zero..... What the hell happen?


Kaioshin_Sama | Jun 20, 1:22 PM
In charge of planning for the Gunslinger Stratos anime apparently. Hmmm....


zurgboy00 | Jun 20, 9:16 AM

@KeyboardKafe: It's not that I dislike his works, some are better than others, a few not so great. What I dislike is how everything about him and his contributions to the anime scene are blown way out of proportion, that he's given sole credit somehow when things go well with a project, is way overpraised in comparison to other people involved in related projects and treated like some sort of infallible genius who can do no wrong and not even properly critiqued like a lot of his peers.

Plus when I hear things like Psycho Pass, Gargantia, Rakuen Tsuihou and others being referred to as his creations it just annoys me that it's not even close to being the truth. He wrote scripts for these shows, he didn't create them. He's the actual original creator for Aldnoah/Zero and some of the Nitroplus visual novels, that's about it really.

The guys essentially been mythologized and idolized at this point making the majority of the commentary on him kind of meaningless and full of disinformation. He's on the fast track to becoming a victim of his own successes if he hasn't become one already with how he just gets used by production committees as a label to slap on a box to appeal to fanboys nowadays as opposed to an actual writer that's part of a team.

Ahh I haven't finished BR.


KyuremX | May 22, 6:31 AM
I wonder what kind of person he is? I love his works, I think every one noted that most of them are really dark. I just can't figure out his personality xD
