Not enough evidence. I'm not going to make up my mind whether he's guilty or innocent without more info.

I know I should make a joke in this situation

But when I saw the quote " did not hit her" I thought of The Room

Whether he's innocent or not, his career is probably over. The story's out there now, and Japan loves a good scandal

You and me both.

I'm not really sure what to make of the situation since all we know is she said he hit her and he says he didn't. Although if there's enough evidence to charge him then there's got to be something going on between them. And whatever that something is, it probably won't be good for his career.

I know this is going to sound insensitive and I hope his wife is alright, but I hope this leads to Kenji Kamiyama receiving the director and scriptwriter role in GitS again. The series has become completely watered down without the sense of technical depth that Kamiyama flawlessly captured.

Either that or have a full anime/OVA adaptation of the manga, panel-by-panel.

If he is innocent I don't think it will be the end for him. While his other shows have been of moderate success only 2 real of note series he's been apart of were the GitS OVA and PP2. I don't think it will be nearly as big as say if the Urobuchi did this. Might be harder for him to find a studio to do his work at first but there's always GONZO or DEEN.

Even if he did hit her, he's doing good work atm so I hope he can get through this with minimal fuss.

Doing "good work" shouldn't justify violence. If he really hit her then I hope he gets punished appropriately.
