Please, hire writers to work on Trigger, bc it seems there aren't any.


deathby1kslimes | Dec 12, 2020 6:45 PM
Absolute legend. Cannot wait to see what he'll work on next, i just saw black rock shooter the other day and had no idea he worked on it. One of the best animators and directors around, in both anime and all film.


Hitokiri655 | Dec 6, 2020 3:33 PM
Director of both Gurren Lagann and Kill la Kill?! What a living legend.
