Anime Classics - Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack

Yoshiyuki Tomino isn't for everyone. The anime director and creator of the Gundam franchise is a bit of an odd duck. It's hard to get a good snapshot of his personality, both in direction and in life. I'm guessing that a lot of this has to do with his long history in the business. After a while, a guy's got to get tired of answering the same five or six questions about the same thing, no matter how much they've prospered from it. Then there's his style of directing, wherein he refuses to hold the hand of the viewer. A plot may be pretty straight forward, but his approach to it in directing may leave some scratching their heads.
