Robot Carnival showed what he can do, and clearly he's one who's not afraid to experiment.

I'd say he's mostly misunderstood due to his bodies of work which were mostly outlandish and unprofitable to begin with. He's got the style and the knack for visual storytelling but never had the chance to work with a good material (or could be due to his unusual fixation towards anime originals).

I have the same sentiment, Kiavala. Although his work on the Presence segment of Robot Carnival is really good. I was surprised he was involved with the story and directing of that.
