For anyone who thinks that this guy is a "good" but not "great" director, I suggest you all watch the Video Essays that the youtube channel "Replay Value" is making about Hyouka. The ridiculous amount of detail that that series has is unbelievable. And also how those details help understand the characters and themes even more. I've always thought that Hyouka was his best work, but those videos help me understand a little better why I thought that.

For anyone interested (and also because the channel's content is actually pretty great) here's the channel:

I wish this guy did FMP IV with Kyoani

@who_dat_ninja the shit that he makes at kyoto animations is proly better anyway lmfao

Amazing director, just from rewatching FMPTSR! He has an incredible eye for cinematic action scenes! Like holy crap, this guy should make making movies and stuff, WHY IS HE STUCK AT KYOANI MAKING MOE BLOB


DevilukeFan | Mar 21, 12:24 AM
Overreactions from the two comments before me. KyoAni will never go under and no one is wasting his potential as a director other than his own choice to keep working there. Anyway, his skill as a director is quite noteworthy and worthy of praise.


SMGJohn | Mar 15, 5:35 PM
It boggles my mind why this man was not in charge of directing Violet Evergarden and also in charge of the entire storyboard for it.
When he directed Hyoukai which is arguably one of the most interesting LN anime adaptations in history of anime.
The LN never explains much in how a camera is positioned the director and storyboard artist has to think up that themselves, but he did it, he made Hyouka what it is why he was thrown to the sideline in Violet Evergarden is beyond me, again KyoAni has pulled another Clannad After Story political nonsense crap in the production. If this continues KyoAni is gonna go under.


velego | Mar 12, 2:06 PM
Easily the best Kyoani director, he should have directed Violet. His episode (#09) is the only one that felt actually competently put together, but he had no real chance to save the show at that point.

Actually, I'd like to see him working in an original show outside of Kyoani, I think that their style is seriously killing his potential as a director (and the "great" FMP: Second Raid proves that).

Great guy.


bitchassdarius | Feb 23, 11:22 AM
hyouka alone makes him the best kyoani director
