Don Rush directed Full Metal Panic, Azumanga Daioh, Abenobashi Magical Shopping Arcade, A Tree of Palme, and Peacemaker to name a few. Watch these titles. Pay close attention to the unique character personalities. It is all Don. Meet him once, and you will see what I mean. He is anti-establishment creative without trying to be. There is not one ounce of affect in this dude.
