In particular, a person in Hong Kong purchased at least one Kimagure Orange Road sketch off an auction originating in Italy. As such, Takada noted that the auctions constitute international fraud.
In addition to Kimagure Orange Road, Takada worked on Urusei Yatsura, Magical Angel Creamy Mami , Maison Ikkoku, Mobile Police Patlabor, Fancy Lala, and many other anime.
