I can see the reason for why people dislike her. She's really prolific somehow and yet imagine if you took all the shortcomings and non-subtleties of someone like Gen Urobuchi and just multiplied them several times while having none of his strengths in terms of conceptual writing and serviceable world building.

She can barely write characters interacting naturally and just seems to have them acting over the top and all crazy and hyper emotional about everything. She's absolutely horrible at writing male characters period, always having them portrayed as failures or the antagonist in situations even when it makes no sense for them to be seen as such. She has some weird obsession with having characters cross dress and screwing up other characters relationships for what seems like no good reason and seems to have this contempt for the characters in her show and anything that might result in them feeling happiness. There's just something really unpleasant and unnatural about a lot of her scripts though occasional she does deliver a solid one.

It should be said too that she now currently has four legendary tier bombs in AKB0048, M3, Black Rock Shooter and Fractale under her belt though and given how she's only really ever had one major hit in Ano Hana it makes one wonder why she keeps getting so many contracts to writer for shows. Like it doesn't really seem like she's adding anything to production teams so unless the situation with writers in Japan is just so dire that she's considered one of the better choices I just don't get her presence in the industry at all.

She's pretty much up there with Gen Urobuchi in terms of "how much does MAL hate this production team member."



krothu | 06-30-14, 7:42 AM
I fucking hate you


Tengai | 06-26-14, 9:50 AM
So, that is how you roll, huh.


ChrisDaPatriot | 05-05-14, 5:23 AM
Fuck you, I love your shit.

@ArcanaTrace

You make me LOL so hard. Wow, just wow.


MrNTR | 04-29-14, 2:49 AM
You guys seem to be confusing what a scriptwriter is. The only series that I know of where she is the complete and original author is AnoHana and Nagi no Asukara. Most of the other works that she is listed as scriptwriter have ORIGINAL sources. Hanasaku Iroha, True Tears, Fate/Stay Night, all of those were adapted from mangas, visual novels, etc.

Also, even if the series isn't adapted from something else, scriptwriters often don't have complete control over all what they write, they are often given outlines and have to work within those outlines, sometimes, very restrictively.


delulytric | 04-09-14, 4:16 AM
Well her recent scripts are of satisfactory quality... only complaint is stop making every girls who got confessed to run away like cowards!


ArcanaTrace | 04-08-14, 7:21 AM
Almost of her works gives me the feeling of ntr even though it isnt true ntr and that sucks. I feel like shit everytime i finish those animes


Black2knight | 04-04-14, 2:53 PM
Its kind of ironic that one of the worst script writers (according to public opinion) is also in charge of hits such as Ano Hana, Iroha, Toradora, Lupin the third etc. Are people over-exaggerating here?
