it actually pains me to see how underrated and forgotten most of his works actually are :(

Basic recommendation post here:

Tomoyasu Murata's "Michi (Road)" series are a particularly lovely example of modern day bunraku (puppetry) animation. I highly recommend them, especially Sora Iro Hana Iro (Sky Colour Flower Colour) and Indigo Road. Lovers of Kihachiro Kawamoto and/or Tadanari Okamoto will not want to miss out!
