Yes, in the Yuru Yuri followup "Nisekoi" why did Toshino Kyoko change her name and start fake-dating a mafia boss's son when she started going to high school?


High School Age Toshino Kyoko:



And yes, I'm joking. When I saw the promo pictures for Nisekoi, I really did think it was Kyoko at first though.

What was your reaction to the reception of YuruYuri (and Kotoura-San) by fans overseas/in the west? Did you anticipate the popularity and success that these shows would receive or did they come as a surprise to you?

Will you be adding a Jury character in the Yuru Yuri series? You know someone who Judge others constantly and acts, or even truly is, full of theirself. A small hammer to match wouldbe convincing.

If you were given the choice to direct any anime you wanted (e.g. original, light novel adaptation, things that already exist like SAO), what would you do and why?

I LOVED Yuru Yuri by the way, I hope you direct more great anime like that in the future! ^_^

Did you have a background in stand-up or improvisational comedy to draw upon in order to establish the comedic timing that was done so well in the YuruYuri adaptation?

To Masahiko Ohta - You have been the director for many popular series such as Yuruyuri and Kotoura-san just to name two of your more recent works. You certainly have quite the resume under your belt and I enjoy many of your works (I'm personally looking forward to Love Lab! in the 2013 Summer Season). The one thing that I have noticed about the works you have directed is that they all mostly fall into the slice of life or comedy categories. The question I'd like to ask you is why these particular genres of anime? Are they your favorite? To further expand the question, is it coincidence or do you feel that your talents are better suited for these particular genres?

At the end of the first season on episode 12 Akari was mad because she did not get to do her opening for the last episode. I was sad to hear this and very surprised to learn of a 2nd season. So how did the second season come to be?

Yuru Yuri is one of my all-time favourite anime series, so firstly, thank you for making it!
My question is, in creating the show, how closely do you work with the manga artist, Namori? Are manga artists included in the process? And assuming you had read some of it prior to making the show, what is it about a manga that makes you see potential for a successful anime?
