That op

After taking a closer look at that op, I'm starting to think it wasn't Matsumoto who did that shot. I was already thinking it was unusual-looking for him. It looks like he did some of the other ones. Which makes me want to know who did it. I can't tell from the credits. There's only a bit of overlap with the first ep (Akira Takada, Takahiro Kishida and Hiroshi Okubo). It's probably not Kishida. Takashi Mukaida supposedly animated the section immediately preceding Nobutake Ito's in Hosoda's Secret Island film. (I'm curious who did those neat missiles early on in the boat chase) Akira Takada was heavily involved in Haibane Renmei, including AD of the last ep. Masahiro Sato seems to be a new face. I don't think Kazuyoshi Yaginuma does that sort of thing, though I could be wrong. Hiroshi Okubo has been involved with the whole Kishida group often in the past. But I can't tell stylistically. I really have no idea. I'll just have to wait and see if he shows up in the series. There's already been a lot of interesting work so far here.

I must say that as a Tsutsui fan I'm rather excited about this new film. I don't know if I'm going to be able to restrain myself from reading the novel beforehand. I'm most curious how the animation is going to look, who he's going to pick for the AD and such. We've gone from Hamasu to Honda to Konishi. Who next?
