I might be wrong, but didn't he write just one episode of Gargantia though?

From what I've been told he wrote the first and last episodes and that was basically his only involvement.

For those who are coming, can someone ask why Micchy's character development in Kamen Rider Gaim went from that guy with low self esteem into a total asshole?

This is super exciting news!

I wonder if it would be a decent idea to bring my "Dokes: Beginnings and Eternal Story" movie poster for him to sign. Decisions decisions...

Nope, he was responsible for the series composition as well.

Oh Mittchi, you started out so cool... Why couldn't SC've gotten him now? I even wore the spoiler[Priestess of Fate]'s costume this year!

He wrote the general story of the series, including the episode composition and manuscript, but the show was more of a way to give new episode writers in the field experience, so he wrote the first and last episodes (in a short series, the first and last episodes are usually the first ones written) and the other amateur writers were meant to take his composition and write each episode in between. That was his direct involvement, but even when writing the story, he was only a co-writer, since the director and producer both helped create the world and many of the characters.

I'd think a question like that would be quite unnecessary. Micchi has plenty of development explained in the series itself. I definitely don't like where he's developing, but at least it was a smooth development that could be seen coming from long ago.

Well damn, that sucks. I wish Anime Expo wasn't such a chore for me to get to though.

Thanks, that clears things up. I guess the encyclopedia does have that listed pretty well.

This is really cool. I gotta a question because I was watching someone give their review on Fate/Zero. If Type-Moon's Takeuchi and Nasu are responsible for creating the FSN series as well as Tsukihime and Garden of Sinners, why is Urobuchi sometimes credited as the creator of F/0? What was his connection with Type-Moon?

First and foremost, the Fate/ property is Nasu's/Type-Moon's, and Urobuchi was never involved in any of the previous works. However, Fate/Zero was written by Urobuchi. The Fate/Zero anime was based on the novels that Urobuchi wrote for Type-Moon, and Urobuchi supervised the anime on the side. Nasu's involvement extended as far as creating many of the characters and clarifying several of the plot points, but Urobuchi was the one who created the story as it is, so Nasu had little part in that.
