Some years ago I bought a dojinshi called “Orange” by Tatsuyuki Tanaka (Cannabis Works). He self published it in 1983. He was 18 years old.
One of my favorite animators! I prefer his lively early work over his more realistic and detailed stuff like Canabis Works and Toujin Kit (although they’re great too). His way of animating the characters in things like “Green Legend Ran” or “Download” is just amazing. So thrilling and stylized, full of unexpected timing and exaggerated angles… Which are two of my favorite traits in animators.
