An interesting video because of the camera angle. You can see the driver's movements and the signal's clearly and what he doesn't  do. He never calls and points.

What's the fun in driving a train if you can't point and call out "Densha vor!"

He does right at the start. But the Keikyu style seems to involve much less of that and more two-hands-on-the-throttle-pushing-the-train-to-the-max fun stuff.

Keikyu drivers also seem to release the brake down to B1 at same time as the conductor closes the doors so that the brake takes less time to release when they want to leave.

Does anyone know whether a train has rolled away because of this method??

Puting any train back to intital brakes or lowest level is quite normal before moving. Pretty common practice on modern emus.
