2013 Yoh Yoshinari Interview (also feat. Hiroyuki Imaishi)

In English at Wave Motion Cannon.

It's all about the animation side, so if you're interested in that this is a terrific read.

Toshio Okada Supports Donald Trump?

I just learned of Toshio Okada's YouTube channel and was surprised to find this video in which he wears a Make America Great Again hat and talks for over an hour (in Japanese). This video was made after Trump was elected, so I'm not clear on whether the video is an expression of Okada's support of T...

Re: New Gainax animation -- Desert Knight

Yesterday I saw this interview from 2014 (relevant bit at 10:30) in which the translator gives Hiroyuki Yamaga as saying: So they're really focusing on the Middle East right now, and the Middle Eastern fans. They are similar to anime fans in Japan in the past. And so, it kind of encourages us to bri...

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

The United States is definitely a threat in Shin Godzilla. They're not "villains" in any of Anno's work but they cause bad things to happen or will cause bad things to happen if Japan doesn't stop them. That makes the US a threat.

Yeah but then the US went to war with Japan to get Hawaii back (starting, of course, by attacking Pearl Harbor), ending with an an overwhelming Japanese victory.

Re: Shin Gojira (a.k.a. Godzilla Resurgence)

Today I rewatched Anno's episode of Re: Cutie Honey because my vaguer-than-I'd-realized memory of it indicated to me while I was watching Shin Godzilla that there were similarities between the two that weren't there in Anno's other works, and... mm, kind of, but less than I'd thought. The main thing...

I find this to be a stretch in one of two ways. It's either a stretch to think that Gainax is referencing 007 in this, or it's a stretch from Gainax themselves for trying to link the two in the first place. This is a neat find, but for these reasons I'm not dying on any hill for it. Wha...

But you see it counting down to zero from five minutes a couple of times before she plugs the plug in. When she sticks it into her back, you see the countdown at eight seconds and some fractional seconds counting down for a few frames before it stops at seven seconds. I think I remember now why I st...

007 Reference in "Asuka Strikes"

No, not "Decisive Battle". I can't imagine it's taken this long for anyone to find it, but I wasn't able to find a mention of this anywhere, sooo... When Unit 02 sorties against Gaghiel, she's apparently not using gain mode and launches with a total of one minute of power. ...
