  • Taguchi's directing style and his preference of special effect is an inspiration from various Kaiju movies, including those of Godzilla franchise. This is a contrast to Koichi Sakamoto, who focuses on the actors' action and coordination, while citing action films as a source of inspiration. Nonetheless, both are also friends in real life and are known for taking inspirations on each other's works.
  • His favorite Ultraman series is the original Ultraman, and his favorite Kaiju is Jamila.
