Depends of Tomino's already questionable mental state.

Still, I really do think Tomino has more respect for his characters than
most writers of anime do--Anno seemed to treat his like guinea pigs in
Evangelion--it makes a big difference.

Opinion question: Has Tomino's directing style changed? It seems that
between ZZ (or Victory) and Brain Powered, his style has become more
erratic. Or maybe it's just me and he's always been like that.
