on one hand 2 awful seasons of berserk. on the other hand 9 god tier seasons of teekyuu.


code403 | May 21, 10:11 AM
this guy should be banned from directing anime


El_Vader | May 18, 4:40 AM
I wonder how did you become a director? Like.. fr


Rekuiemu | May 16, 1:26 AM
Back then when I was a kid, even when I hadn't acquired a taste for anime I quit Devil May Cry because it was so boring. Of course he's gonna fail doing Berserk.


AsherGZ | Apr 16, 5:06 PM
What the hell was that direction in Kumo desu ga Episode 14? Literally Berserk 2016 tier animation and camerawork, which is a feat considering it wasn't even 3d! Keep this guy away from anime at all costs.


zero-r | Mar 26, 8:42 AM
↓ This got nothing to do with budget.... but the lack of talent (episode directors, key animators, etc) coming to work on his projects (for some reason or another).

Yes, budget is import too, but you can have all the budget you want and still produce something average because of the lack of talent you (and your animation producer) couldn't bring on board.



mrmuk | Mar 15, 5:29 PM
Great animator and great director who is only limited by the budget he gets. Cop Craft had super low budget, yet mostly, it was enjoyable due to general good use of camera perspectives and direction. Kumo Desu ga is super fun to watch and the anime compliments the light novel wonderfully, showing enough to get you interested, but leaving out certain details so that reading the light novel additionally is still worth it.

Other than that, let's see... Teekyuu? Amazing work there. Bakemonogatari OP2 (Hachikuji OP)? That's a masterpiece. Overall, a huge list of projects where he worked. So yeah, amazing guy. Let Milpensee grow and have a higher budget, and it will produce some amazing shows for sure. When you have learned to work well with a small budget, then the results with a big budget will be amazing.


HoloKill | Mar 14, 9:49 PM
People either love or hate this guys directing style, I honestly think it's pretty good and really unique but I can understand how some people don't like it


Xenocrisi | Mar 8, 3:14 AM
Awful awful director. Every camera shot is a mess and the action is somehow worse


Zaugr | Mar 5, 2:11 PM
This guy really can't and shouldn't be directing, and if his wife wasn't the studio president... I really don't think he would be. It's not that the shows he's worked on are necessarily all "bad", there's a lot more that can hold a show up other than the directing--source material quality, voice acting, art and writing namely for anime adapations--but it's that the directing for all of them is absolutely, consistently terrible. With so much just weird and inefficient shot composition, with always those awful, jarring and unnatural shot angles and wasted space... Not to mention all the freaky closeups to random things in shots that communicates nothing--or severly limits what otherwise could be. His decisions are so often baffling in the worst ways like this, and just go to hurt the experience and immersion of a scene. Things that could or should be emphasised for the viewer, rarely are, and if they are, it's in very weak and cheap ways, with always various cut corners. Where these things could otherwise be so exciting or interesting for the viewer, they just aren't with his direction.
