Update: The director of the opening sequence is Akira Amemiya (Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, The Idolm@ster). Trigger co-founder Hiroyuki Imaishi (Dead Leaves, Gurren Lagann, Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt), then working at Gainax, directed the Namco × Capcom opening at Production I.G. Thanks braves.
