This season, Atsuko Ishizuka is working on her first anime-original series with A Place Further than the Universe. Both Free!‘s Hiroko Utsumi and Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun‘s Mitsue Yamazaki have projects within the next two seasons. And the AniFem team just relived their love for Sayo Yamamoto in podcast form. Now we want to know: who’s your fave?

  • Is there a female director whose work you’ll watch just because their name is on it?
  • Which director’s work do you wish more people had heard of?
  • Are there any writers or other anime production staff members you’d like to see in the director’s chair? (E.g., Mari Okada has announced that she’ll be directing at some point in future.)
  • What series, if any, would you like to see remade with a female director?
