I need your comments: General opinions on SHAFTXSHINBO works

Alright guys, here’s the story: I got wrapped up in a thing that I want to leave as a surprise for now, but for it to go anywhere I need to conduct some quick and dirty research. Since I have a readership and a comments field at my disposal, I figure I may as well use them.

So basically, I’m asking you guys for opinions. Specifically–as mentioned in the title of this post–your opinions on works by anime director extraordinaire Shinbo Akiyuki. I don’t need much. Just one or two paragraphs if you can.

Also, if some of you can drop a few names of any other communities where you feel I’ll get good responses, that would be great.
