Hey everyone,

We had the chance to interview some extremely talented and special guests from Japan at Sakura-Con 2013! Check out our transcripts with the Co-Founder of famed animation studio BONES, Toshihiro Kawamoto, and the creator and author of the hit light-novel turned anime series, Sword Art Online, Reki Kawahara! We've also got an exclusive video interview with anime otaku and singers for Fate/Zero and Sword Art Online, Eir Aoi and Luna Haruna!


*Note* Kawahara-san and Kawamoto-san's interviews were a round table interview that was transcribed, and Eir Aoi and Luna Haruna were able to provide us with a one-on-one interview slot. No photos were allowed at Kawahara-san's interview. Bolded text refers to the interviewer/translator, and unbolded text is the guest's answer.

Toshihiro Kawamoto Interview




Reki Kawahara Interview



Eir Aoi and Luna Haruna Interview


A HUGE thank you to Sakura-Con and their staff and translators for helping and arranging these interviews!

Thanks so much for these! I especially enjoyed the Toshihiro Kawamoto interview, by coincidence he answered some questions I recently had about the industry with regards to doing sequels and original vs. adapted work.

Eir Aoi says she looks like a tomboy - not in this interview but in another one - I don't think so. She is so beautiful, in my submission.

It was a shame that the Reki interview was done as a round table. There were so many questions generated from the fans that I really wanted answered so it was a shame that very little was allowed to be done with that thread in the end. Shame that opportunity for a one on one never came to fruition.

Funny his comment just wishing he'd made Haruyuki a bit cooler. Wonder how much his character design affected sales? I thought maybe some people cold relate to him better because he isn't cool.

Too bad Viz got the license so no Canada as it is on Hulu Be nice if it was a catalog title here someday.

Glad you did, thanks! I had been wondering who in the industry would know and actually give us answers to those sorts of questions.
