He has since gone on to direct numerous series from originals such as Guilty Crownhttps://anilist.co/anime/10793/ and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortresshttps://anilist.co/anime/21196/ to the massively successful adaptation of Attack on Titanhttps://anilist.co/anime/16498/ whichs production Araki left with the studio change.
