Well, the man did create the Gundam franchise, so any byproduct can be pointed back to him. As for his directorial credits, he directed Zambot 3, the first Mobile Suit Gundam, Space Runaway Ideon and it's subsequent movie Be Invoked, the three Gundam movies between 1981-1982, Aura Battler Dunbine, Heavy Metal L-Gaim, every Gundam series between 1958-1993, perhaps the most incredible distinction Garzey's Wing (considered one of the worst anime of all time), and the Gundam series between 1999-2002 and 2005-2006. These, along with a handful of others should be satisfactory

Not familiar with any works by Tomino; any recommendations?

I find it belligerently hilarious that prior to being called a Wolf's Rain, it was called a Tomino, as Yoshiyuki Tomino tends to kills EVERYONE in the projects he is associated with. The fact that Isayama is being crticized by Tomino just before thinking about pulling a Tomino just blows my mind.

So Hajime Isayama has considered pulling a Wolf's Rain. Some day maybe I'll really have to watch or read this series, but sometimes the more popular a series is suddenly the less I feel I can get into it. I mean, I'll watch Naruto and SAO, but I can go without.

I agree with Yoshiyuki Tomino that Attack on Titan is pretty grotesque. I wouldn't watch it either unless it was literally put in front of me. I've seen pictures and gifs of it on tumblr, and I honestly can't see what the big deal is. The artwork isn't that great and I don't understand the concept of skinned giants walking around destroying things. I've watched weird anime but this one is just past me...

For those wondering about the broken One Piece Symphony link, here's a new address. Link
On the subject of Crunchyroll, majority ownership doesn't mean total control. From what I'm aware, Chernin is merely an investment group. Crunchyroll receives Chernin money, upgrades streaming services, builds on new options, advertises more, makes good on their investment, and pays back Chernin's percentage with interest. Thus, the cycle continues.

Rest in peace to those deceased. Oh and in regards to Crunchyroll, now I'm worried.
