>As far as directors go, Yoshiyuki Tomino from Gundam is one who has his own unique philosophy. How was it working with him?
>I wondered how I was to bring music to a person like Tomino-san, who exudes this atmosphere of difficult vocabulary being shot up in the air like clouds of flak composed of logic. Music is a right brain creation, so when it’s overloaded with words coming from the left brain, it’s hard to stay creative in a sense. It was difficult to transmit my thoughts through language to him, so I felt that talking to him stifled my creativity. It took me about half a year until I understood this. But after that I just tried to blow up all the jargon that was crippling me creatively.
So Tomino's hilariously awful dialogue has nothing to do with it being Japanese.

I've seen over a hundred anime series, but realized there are two "genre" I have almost no experience with, Mecha and Magical Girl.
I've seen Code Geass, Eva and it's rebuilds, and a few things that maybe count as fringe cases like FLCL and Gurren Lagann. I don't know shit about gundam, or any of the series that actually focus on mecha. What stand-alone mecha series are worth watching, without having to watch a dozen other series to properly enjoy?
