Discussion: Shinichiro Watanabe

TL;DW – Shinirchiro Watanabe is a brilliant anime series’ director for his ability to populate his stories with a diverse crowd of antiheroic characters and complexify (yes, I made this word up — roll with it) them beyond their simplistic archetypes. Whether he’s got his characters in space, in an anachronistic Edo-era of Japan, or even the modern day, he’s never going to give obviously good/bad guys; they’re always gonna live in that moral grey area.

Series’ discussed:
Cowboy Bebop
Samurai Champloo
Kids on the Slope
Space Dandy
Terror in Resonance
