Personal Quote:

I hate the idea of 'background' music - the idea that animation is supposedly the main focus of the show and music should only play a supporting role. In my opinion, the music should stand out just as much as the animation. They should always be pushing each other to new heights.

Known for his use of Anamorphic Wide Screen, in his Anime. Also well known for his style of directing, often doing tight close up shots of characters. Same style was used in .hack//SIGN. He's also known for brining a dark tone to his Anime See more »
