He also worked on The Magic Of Oz, Manga Nihon Mukashi Banashi (1976) and Vic The Viking among others. He also did the Kid Icarus: Uprising segment Medusa's Counterattack in 2012. He has 72 credits to his resume (how I came up with just 35 credits is beyond me). I discovered that he did animation for both volumes of Kill Bill. He has been working on Bahamut: Rage Of Genesis and the recent Samurai Warriors SP OAV in 2014. He also worked on several animated shorts for the government of Tokyo and Toyota in 2010 and 2012.
