The answer

Scratch what I said about Ohira in the last post. The answer has come, and it's one of those "Of course!" answers that I should have seen by myself.

森久司 Hisashi Mori = 中山久司 Hisashi Nakayama

And it makes perfect sense. In an old post I made a comment about Nakayama's work on Digimon: Children's War Game as seeming incredibly Ohira school, and that supposition seems fairly vindicated here. Nakayama is definitely a worthy successor to Ohira.

Hisashi Nakayama
1994 - Sailor Moon S #37 (KA) (Hiroyuki Okuno KA)
1995 - Jusenshi Galkiba #18 (KA)
1995 - Ogon Yusha Goldran #28 (KA) (Hiroyuki Okuno AD)
1996 - Sailor Moon: Sailor Stars #17, 21, 28, 32 (KA) (Hiroyuki Okuno KA 126)
1997 - Cutey Honey Flash #5, 23 (KA)
1997 - Voogie's Angel #2 (mecha AD)
1998 - Galaxy Express 999: Eternal Fantasy (KA) (Mamoru Hosoda, Hideki Hamasu KA)
1998 - Giant Robo #7 (KA)
1999 - Tenamonya Voyagers #2 (KA) (Masashi Ishihama CD/AD, H. Okuno, T. Yamashita KA)
1999 - Power Stone #20 (KA)
1999 - Digimon Adventure (KA) (Takaaki Yamashita AD, Hiroyuki Okuno, Masashi Ishihama KA)
2000 - Mushrambo #2, 9, 20 (Hiroyuki Okuno AD)
2000 - Digimon Adventure: Children's War Game (AD/CD) (Takaaki Yamashita AD)
2001 - Virgin Night (Scene Design, Layout, KA) (Hiroyuki Okuno D/KA)
2001 - Spirited Away (KA)
2002 - Digimon Adventure 02: Hurricane Touchdown (KA) (Takaaki Yamashita AD)
2002 - Palme no Ki (KA)
2002 - Square of the Moon #2 (KA) (Hiroyuki Okuno director)
2003 - Crash Gear Turbo #68 (final) (KA)
2003 - The Big O #15 (KA) #21 (mecha AD) (Hiroyuki Okuno KA 26)

Hisashi Mori
2003 - ROD TV #13 (KA)
2003 - Tokyo Godfathers (KA)
2004 - Samurai 7 #7 (All Part A KA) (Hiroyuki Okuno D/S/Part B KA), 17, 18, 23 (KA)
2005 - Omatsuri Danshaku to Himitsu no Shima (KA) (Takaaki Yamashita AD)
2005 - Speed Grapher (design works) (w/Hiroyuki Okuno, Masashi Ishihama CD)
2006 - Doraemon: Nobita no Kyoryu 2006 (KA)

Interesting is that he used a pen name here but neither he nor Okuno used a pen name in Virgin Night, which is what people generally do in adult anime; which belies their seriousness of intent with the film.
