I really like how Ohana always tells herself to "Fess it up!" even though she's a crybaby, did you intend to make Ohana this type of character at first or did it just happen naturally with the flow of the story?

Ah, well that's an opportunity. Here's some serious and not so serious ones.

- Could you name some of your favorite anime and characters?
- Who would be your favorite characters from your own work?
- Crossdressing seems to appear quite a bit in the works you are involved in. Given your work in "Wandering Son", do you have a certain interest in gender identity issues?
- I've always wanted to ask an anime writer this, but what do you think of fanservice of the sexual kind in anime?
- What was the point of Aiko in True Tears?
- Who would win in a fight? Jibeta or Raigomaru?
- Which anime ending of yours have you enjoyed writing the most?
- Ohana seems to be a wonderful and incredibly realistic lead; how did you draw inspiration for her?

Okada-sensei,

Do you prefer to write situations you already know, and try to refine the story, or write knew scenarios that you are less experienced with?

Q: "What's the most challenging part about switching from writing something like Wandering Son to AnoHana to Toradora to Hanasaku Iroha? Do you find yourself sometimes switching or mistakingly writing a character the wrong way from writing on this many different shows?"

Of the characters in Hanasaku Iroha, who's story arc do you have the strongest emotions for, and did you know this would happen or was it just a coincidence?

Hi, I'm so excited and this is my question to Mari Okada ~
Most of your stories portray the values of friendship/love, finding/ defining self true identify, and self acceptance. Do you truly believe all this traits are really important for the viewers? And if so what other traits you think should be portrayed more in today’s anime?
