I've already said that not every Kawamori show had a bittersweet ending so I don't know why you're listing all his shows that didn't. But when Escaflowne, Macross Zero, Aquarion, Macross Frontier Movie and more than likely Aquarion 2 (and maybe Arjuna) have bittersweet endings than...

Anyamaru Tantei Kiruminzuu only lists him as the original creator and it seems he had no input after coming up with the concept.
Arjuna's ending was kinda bittersweet in that the main character loses her ability to talk, and it seems that she becomes unable to walk as well, but by then her boyfriend can understand her without words anyway and just wants to be with her. But yeah its pretty much implied that they had a happy ending (at least in my opinion).
