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?

You were right about Utsunomiya doing the Eureka 7 OP. What caught my eye was the much darker palette used (and only later did I notice Utsunomiya’s drawing style around the characters). They had to throw in an Itano circus, didn’t they (but this time the lines are much clearer)… The flying just before and after the Itano Circus are probably my favourite.

And Norimitsu Suzuki didn’t do the ED this time, it was Shinichiro Watanabe.

By the way, would you happen to know who’s this “Eddy Chun” in the genga credits for the OP? A nickname for someone?

I think Norimitsu Suzuki was busy doing the Rozen Maiden ed, of all things.

I very much look forward to seeing this op. I was shocked to hear Bones had let him do the AD as well.

Eddy Chun’s a mystery to me too. I’m very curious to see what a Muraki Circus corrected by Utsunomiya will look like…

Since you said Norimitsu Suzuki was doing the Rozen Maiden ED I checked it (just the OP and ED) out. Thank goodness for people who rip just the OP and ED footage! I s’pose the stuff breaking up and turning into petals was a Daicon homage…

I was surprised to see that the OP of that was directed by Sayo Yamamoto. I guess this is what she was working on after that episode of Eureka Seven almost 10 eps ago.
