I've never liked any of his work... what he does that's good is almost
always derivative of something else, and the rest of his work seems
conspicuously 'stuck in the 1950s, with a 1990's flair'.
In that sense, he's a great match for Okawara! It would be great to see
a parody series set in the 1970's anime universe with goony ships by Syd
and goony robots by Okawara, I'd get a kick out of it, and we could call
it: "That 70's Robot Show" and it would air on Fox!
