Sherlock Hound

I just wanted to take a memo of the staff on the early Miyazaki episodes of Sherlock Hound. Apologies if this is already listed somewhere in English, because I haven't checked. This is one of those tapes I pull off the shelf and rewatch every once in a while when I'm feeling in need of a booster shot of exhiliration. This may very well be my favorite Miyazaki anime (well, after Conan) because of the dream team that made the episodes. (list is in production order)

Never realized until now that Katabuchi was the screenwriter for all the Miyazaki episodes (but one), nor that one was in fact a Tomizawa episode. (Or have I even seen that one?) For those who don't know who Tomizawa is, he's one of the major Telecom animators of the period alongside Kazuhide Tomonaga (he is still an important figure there), and the team of Kondo/Tomonaga/Tomizawa are responsible for what I personally think is the best Telecom anime ever, the first Nemo pilot. We really see how, from top to bottom, this is the same team that made the late Lupin III Part 2 episodes and then Cagliostro. We also see many of the female animators who went on to continue working at Ghibli. Interesting to find Masaaki Endo here, an animator with whose work I'm familiar from the building destruction animation he drew in Akira. Another Akira animator is there, I just noticed: Hitoshi Ueda, in episode 21. (he did the part where Kaneda and the clown boss play chicken)

Very interesting. So in truth, Miyazaki directed only FIVE of those six early episodes. But all six were still produced before the disagreement with the Doyle estate that put the series on hold, right?
