i love his direction, especially the atmosphere of his shows, and the unique and surreal imagery he comes up with. his story telling is dreamlike and indirect, even if it doesn't all come together in the end i love it. i wish people appreciated him more as a director.

I wish Angel's Blade was a 12 episode long hentai series. With both focus on sex and story.

The king of big dick energy. Great storyboarder, designer, and animator, but the writing in almost all the shows he's directed sucks balls.

This man is a fucking legend. A real chad and I bet he has a big dick due to all the big dick anime he's worked on.

All of his character designs have that very extreme 90s-esque sharpness/sexiness to them with excessive shading, even for shows he's designed for in the 2000s and 2010s. A pretty rad lad.

His character designs are actually horrible. Bootleg Satoshi Urushihara.
