Who is Masafumi Nishida?

I’ve seen more than a few comments about Masafumi Nishida, the screenwriter and co-creator of Tiger & Bunny in the lines of “no one knows who this guy is”. True enough, if you just look at anime sites you won’t find anything on him. Tiger & Bunny is the first anime he’s worked on but he’s far from rookie.
