How can one go from directing Sword of the Stranger and then go to Shirayuki-him. Simply amazing. Both are great series btw. :)

used to hate on his sailor moon animation style, but some of his other work is really good

His targeting for Sirius was a total damage.

Shirayuki-hime and Hanasaku Iroha were simply great, I'm quite curious about his next Sol-Drama this summer.

Henderland's poker scene was astonishing

Hanasaku Iroha was the definition of cliche events, reactions. All the characters were easily the most obnoxious and hateable cast. There really wasn't anything to like about the series, with only nano.RIPE's insert songs being my only source of enjoyment of the series.
