This guy is confusing...

One of the best writers I've seen so far, tough I think sometimes depending on the team he writes something which is not his usual, and it turns out so so, I think he should respect himself more and only work with people that give him the freedom that he needs to create masterpieces like Code Geass Again.

Please fire this guy.

Shigofumi. Thank you bro.

Nah, only Guilty Crown was a real trainwreck.

Kabaneri was more mediocre than anything else.

Some people will never understand that making anime is a collective process with a lot of people making creative decisions, not just one person working all by himself.

The writer works with the director, the producers and many others in order to determine what happens in the script. If you hire a guy like this and ask him to write dumb schlock (steampunk samurai and half-zombies fighting other zombies is such an inherently silly idea), then that's exactly what he is going to make.

When they actually hire him to do something better, such as the fifth episode of Space Dandy, then the results will be different. Even Code Geass turned out pretty well, all things considered, because of the specific team involved and other factors.

Either way, I'd say he still did some pretty good work with the early parts of Kabaneri. But it would be silly to blame him for decisions which were made as part of an entire team that wanted to make a very over-the-top and dumb action series, period, rather than something less wacky and more realistic. Tetsuro Araki, the director, likes all this schlock. Why would you expect the writing to not support that goal? Perhaps we'll never know exactly who came up with the idea of Biba, to name the single most controversial part of Kabaneri, but I am sure many will pretend it was all this guy's fault.

Please never write anything again.

Turned Code Geass into a trainwreck, then made Guilty Crown and now Kabaneri, which makes AoT look like a masterpiece. This guy is one of a kind.
