In the mid 70's Mashimo joined up at Creator/TatsunokoProduction as a director and assistant director on the TV series TimeBokan and would go on and direct many more projects for the studio. In the mid 80's Mashimo was reported to have suffered an extreme alpine skiing accident which left him hospitalized for a lengthy duration. It is said during his stay in the hospital he got the idea for a small studio that would act as a "Hospital for Animators", a studio that would nurture the creative spirit of it's staff rather than focus on financial or commercial success. Sometime later he formed a group of freelance animators and worked on more projects through the 80s and 90s. Mashimo stated later at Anime Expo that he was also approached to direct for'' Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' with Creator/ProductionIG but he turned the offer down.
