Iwane sure is the most influential Pokemon anime animator out of the, especially that he still keeps animating Pokemon despite getting older and older.

Iwane's a god tier animator in general. The final blast of the Father Son Kamehameha from DBZ was his doing.

Love his work since I saw the episodes he did towards the end of the Diamond and Pearl anime. There was lots of cool sakuga with fancy camera movement and his usual clean and fluid style.

I already noticed him in some of the action cuts in the game's trailer, but I didn't know he did the whole thing solo.

I have a lot of respect for him soloing his episodes while at the same time achieving such a high quality.

But he is not the only one who does this, there are a few other talented animators out there, who like to solo or duo their episodes, for example Masahiko Murata's episodes in Naruto Shippuuden or Takashi Kojima in various series come to mind.

But I know no one, who does it as regulary and frequent as Iwane, truly a talented and hard working man!
