Propably if someone ask me, is there a man i want to thank for his existence, I would say Chester Bennington. However at the 2nd place would be this guy. What he made is masterpiece of anime comedy and if Steins;Gate wouldn't exist, his output would be my top anime ever. Thank you Hiroyuki Imaishi :)
