Nothing is obvious but I'll make an exception here, of course it's Sensei Kurosawa.

@Jeorj, your choice is great since Takashi's in this list...
But I'm amazed how a list of any size, devoted to best Japanese directors, may not include Takeshi Kitano. Really.

Akira Kurosawa obviously for me. You can consider adding Hideaki Anno who has been doing excellent works in Japanese animation and that carry out Neon Genesis Evangelion

I update the title of this thread to better match the title of your list.

Please consider changing your question from:

To:

  3. Finally, delete the string "Discuss the Poll Here" containing the previous link and input this: [link=//getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/best-japanese-director-according-to-you]Discuss the Poll Here[/link]
Please don't forget to OK this edit.

Hi ilyas,

To be considered for the homepage, a poll's title must be in AP style, which just means that the capitalization should be as follows:

Best Japanese Director According to You?

We also try to keep the titles consistent to go live but it's especially important if you'd like this to be considered for the homepage. : )

By the way, I think I'm going to have to flip a coin to decide, lol. Kurosawa and Miyazaki both have too many masterpieces. Of course, I could vote for Koreeda: I love his films and Kurosawa and Miyazaki will both get so many votes so, even though he hasn't been around long enough to have the iconic stature of his elders, I'd like to see him get some nods.
