There are few animators with the ability to animate like Yoshitaka Yashima. Across series like Digimon Adventure, Digimon Adventure Zero Two, Digimon Tamers, Digimon Frontier, Saint Seiya Omega, Digimon Xros Wars II, and Disk Wars: Avengers, Yashima has soloed a number of episodes. That means he served as the storyboard artist, animation supervisor, and often the sole key animator on an episode. He is the animator that frees up the schedules of other animators, allowing them to work on future episodes with more time. On a series like Super, he is a godsend.
This does mean that Yashima’s work often lacks the same level of polish found in fully-staffed episodes. His work is easily identifiable thanks to the unique way he draws noses – from the side and three-quarter views, they’re extremely pointy, and from the front, they’re thin and round.
