She's excellent in directing stuff (Hibike!,K-On!);def. should work on more projects.
Koe no Katachi is a real cinematic masterpiece!

I used to not believe in gods, now I know they exist: Yamada is one of them.

Hands down one of the most promising young directors and one with a lot of room for improvement, but her work still has some arguably big flaws on important aspects (overblown way of handling some of the drama, overdone lighting and effects, irregular pacing, obsessive fixation with teenage girls, etc) that are often ignored because she makes a bunch of cool shot compositions and Kyoani's visuals always look nice. If I had to compare her with someone I'd say she's close to Mamoru Hosoda in terms of strengths/weaknesses.
I'd actually like to see her working on an original story and with weaker production values, just to see how she adapts (I think it'd fix at least half of my major problems with her style).
