Top notch designs! Iconic even! Looking forward to his work on Perfect Bones, hopefully he designs the characters as well!

I love his designs.

Just finished 'Moondrive' from Genius Party, incredible.

Also, this is the man responsible for the amazing sakuga animation for Kuroko no Basket and Samurai Champloo.

Thanks for a lot of the cool animation in Kuroko basket!

Moondrive was pretty incredible.
It's my second favorite short out of all the Genius Party shorts, right next to Watanabe's "Baby Blue"

He did the animation for Linkin Park's "Breaking the Habit" music video.

Its pretty sad when your a big enough fan of a director that you'll watch stuff you'd never watch anyways just to check out the talent involved *cough *cough vassalord *cough *cough.

This guy rocks though, met him at Otakon back in '06, asked him about comedy and the audience was like "Woah he did comedy" and he was like "Woah, you guys saw comedy!" it was a fun experience to say the least.

Now lets hope the next thing he does is something that doesn't make me feel weird for watching it (even if it was really well produced).
