awful take

Hey Adampk, I think your 'take' was very stupid and unnecessary. Based on how uninformative it was regarding any serious and indepth critique of Rintaro's work, I hope I'll never read your bullshit again on a MAL page.

He is definitely one of worst director, I have ever seen. I watched neo tokyo, final fantasy and now metroplolis. They were definitely some of my most painful experience in watching anime. Based on these 3 anime, I realized this director doesn't understand the meaning of "syncing" or "viewable experience". His anime has a lot of unneeded details in terms of art designs and animation which doesn't contribute to the anime itself but there presence make it all the more painful to watch those anime. Nothing is really in a sync where it is weird ecchi (in final fantasy) or gooey designs (in neo tokyo) or the far view points used during character speech (in metropolis), all of them makes the anime unpresentable and excruciatingly painful for audience to watch. Also his signature style of cartoonish transition and music also appears out of place which rest of the things. All in all he is basically the meaning "Hardwork is useless. if u are not putting it at right places."
I just watched 3 anime, So i actually doesn't know yet if he has made anything decent. But based on how these 3 went, I don't plan to find out

One of the most important people in the history of anime. Like his stuff or not, he is absolutely vital to the careers of many of the creators who made their start on Madhouse.
