You've wrote plenty of scripts for original animes. What would you advise or recommend to a freshly entering scriptwriter?

"You always write such brilliant scripts, can you tell us about any new projects you're working on?"

"Did you always want to pursue the career you have now and what inspires you?"

"What's your favorite anime?"

"Out of all the projects you have worked on, which one do you hold closest to your heart?"

I guess I'd like to ask her to what extent she did her research for the anime. Did she work at an onsen ryokan herself to gain the experiences needed to make the characters feel more alive or did she and her team gather information from the locations instead?

Your characters tend to have very distinct, well-defined personalities. How do you find a balance between staying true to those personalities and letting the characters grow and change over the course of a series?

If Crunchyroll ever produces an anime will you do the writing for that anime?

When you are writing the heart tugging moments are you inspired by anything in real life (news articles, stories you've heard, non-fiction books) or are they inspired by fantasy (books, other anime, made up by you)?

After watching the anime, why did you make Hanasaku Iroha have no main real antagonist (like in a human physical form)? Although i never seen a main person who was bad all the time some characters were bad for a certain situation. Was it for realism or was it too much to put all the hate into on human form? The story was pretty amazing and i enjoyed ths whole anime! It was the first anime I seen with no human antagonist with the drama and the motivation as the energy to run the show. It was also a slice of life that actually had a plot other than shows like Nichijou.

Hanasaku Iroha presents us with some very strong female characters. In contrast some of the male characters can seem incompetent, perverted or oblivious. Would you consider Hanasaku Iroha a "feminist" anime? And how much did gender roles or stereotypes factor into portraying different characters and shaping the story?

In Hanasaku Iroha, I felt like all the characters could have been real people. How difficult was it to write such a sweet, heart warming story, but keep it so grounded in reality?
