Noted founder and C.E.O. of BEE TRAIN animation studios.
In the mid 1970's he began his animation carrer as a director with Tatsunoko Productions, debuting as an Assistant Director on Time Bokan (1975).

After surviving a severe skiing accident in the mid 80's Mashimo was hospitalized for a lengthy duration, where he conceived his idea as a "hospital studio" to nurture the creative spirit of animators over a commercial focus. In June of 1997 he set up BEE TRAIN under Production I.G. In 2006 his studio became independent.

Koichi Mashimo was also apart of Project .hack and the .hack Conglomerate, which included some notable names in the industry such as Yoshiyuki Sadamoto of GAINAX, Diasuke Uchiyama of Bandai, Kouji Morimoto of Bandai, Shinichirou Inoue of Kadokawa Shoten, Fukashi Azuma of TV Tokyo, and Kazunori Ito of Catfish.

Other non-anime staff include a novelized version of Eat-Man and Production for Xenogears animation cut scene footage as well as Wild Arms 3 for the PS2.

he one of my favorite peoples


kachuusha | Jul 28, 2012 10:59 PM
what have you done to Tsubasa Chronicle? =_=


koreye | Apr 5, 2011 2:50 AM
he completely messed up on Blade of the immortal...such amateurish direction. I really hope he doesnt do the same with hyuogomone...I have high expectations for that anime.


Lamfreyde | Jan 1, 2011 4:53 AM
I still don't understand why did Miloš not know if he was Czech or Slovakian...


Orangevision | Oct 21, 2010 3:12 AM
This guy broke the Blade of the Immortal, there's no excuse for what he has done.


Prede | Sep 29, 2010 4:13 PM
He's great at creating an atmosphere! Definitely a unique, and underated director. Weathering Continent, Madlax, Noir, El Cazador, Dominion Tank Police...the list goes on and on. If there's one thing he does right every time, it's the amazing atmosphere he can create with ease.

Also after watching all of Madlax...I have no doubts that he was serious when he said he was drunk when he wrote the screenplay for it...Because you gata be drunk to come up with some of that lol.

Bee Train Quality.

Yey.


Okoa | Jun 27, 2010 7:57 PM
Love .hack//SIGN to death. Madlax, Noir, and Phantom were also fantastic.


Sheldor | Jun 20, 2010 2:17 PM
He does amazing characterisation.

TheRick: You're an idiot bro, there was no fleshing out in any series he ever directed.
