Nagahama started his career at Madhouse as a mechanical designer, then as a freelancer he worked on series such as Revolutionary Girl Utena as the animation director and on Fruits Basket as an assistant director and episode director. He has since directed the Mushishi television anime series and the Detroit Metal City OAV, and he served as an episode director for Guilty Crown.
Nagahama is also attending the Animazement convention in North Carolina on May 25-27.
