Very interesting, because Dororo 15 was the best episode of the series, superbly directed (save the fight scene i guess). I thought i recognized his style and inmediatly looked it up and yup, it was him. I was never a fan of his TTGL episode, but i have newfond respect for his skills now.

i once really got interested in looking him up when i watched the first ending theme of dororo, the style kind-of reminded me of the one used in the 4th ttgl episode. and yeah, that episode was a weird one, i agree. a few days ago i got interested in reading beck and decided to check out a few episodes of the anime and there i too recognized his style.

i don't think he deserves such negative criticism since his style is a very unique one. i actually adore his art style in general but i as well just can't get to like his directing, the pacing often feels weird and somewhat uneasy. that is one of the reasons why i decided to not continue the beck adaptation, sadly.

but in the end, he should keep being weird. that comment on here made me smile.

I was not a huge fan of Dororo 2019 ep15 by him. The animation got a lot worse and so did the quality and enjoyement. Yikes.

SergioVSnake | Aug 17, 2019 9:12 PM
