Favourite anime director: Shinichiro Watanabe
"It actually kind of sucks having to be a director. Once you do it, you discover how hard it really is. This is no kind of a job for a human being, let me tell you. I think I ought to quit, but I can’t really do anything else!"
If I was burdened with the task to constantly be a genius creator/director of animated TV series, I might feel this way, too.
