His films are likable for young people until they become family person. Also, half of his films are all remake.

If I have to make my Top 100 Japanese films, his won't be there.

Sounds exactly like the Puri Cure series or any of the Magical Girl genre. Yawn.

15 years ago, yeah. Now all he makes are absolutely terrible anime adaptations.

Good for him. His horror films are as weird as they are grotesque (in a good way). A good director never wants to be pigeon holed, so hats off to Miike-san for stepping out of his comfort zone.
