When you talk about anime, the term “animation” comes up a lot.
There’s always a certain element of romance to anime, and a lot of people just don’t see anime as being that much of a romance.
So I’m always curious how you guys think of the anime industry.
How would you describe anime in your own words?
I would describe it as the art form that really captures my imagination, that really gets me into a story and into a place.
The anime industry is all about the art.
It’s all about animation.
So that’s the art we see in anime, right?
So, I think we can talk about it as a very specific genre of animation, but we don’t talk about the anime as an art form.
I think that’s what makes it so special to us.
How do you feel about the state of the industry?
Well, we’ve always loved the art and the way it works, so we’ve kind of always been interested in it.
But it’s not something that’s going to get lost in the shuffle.
It seems like everybody wants to be the next Avatar, and that’s just not true.
So, the art isn’t going anywhere.
We’re not going to go away.
But I think it’s going on in a different way, because it’s different than the other animation that we’ve seen.
I don’t think it will get forgotten, so that’s good.
So how does it feel to have the first anime of the year be a romance?
It’s been such a long time since we’ve had romance in the anime world.
Do you feel like the industry has progressed in a positive way?
I don, but I think there are still a lot that we don.
So we don’ want to get too caught up in that right now.
We’ve seen a lot in terms of the quality of the animation, the quality that the staff have brought to the series, and also the quality on the fans.
So it’s kind of good to have that, but you can always go back and look at the last couple of years.
We really haven’t seen a bad season.
The fans have been fantastic.
You can go back in time to see the fandom that went to see these two years.
You’ll be surprised how good it is.
Are you worried about the next generation of anime fans?
I’m a little worried.
There are a lot people that are fans of a certain generation that’s coming in now, and they may not be able to get into anime, but they’re coming into it because they love it.
They’re coming in because they know it’s good, and it’s got a strong sense of romance.
There’ll always be a niche for those people.
So what we can do is just be more aware of what we’re watching, but also be aware of where they’re getting their information from.
I feel like we have a really good grasp on where they come from.
Are they getting information from the anime companies themselves?
I would say, yes.
There were a lot more voices in the last few years.
I wouldn’t say they’re necessarily the most important voice, but there are a number of voices that are coming into the anime and the fans are hearing.
So those are the voices that we have to be aware about.
We have to give them a little bit more of a voice.
And it’s been a very good thing for the industry, because we’ve gotten a lot better at creating the kinds of characters and the kinds the stories are telling.
I can’t speak for all the companies, but for me, I don’ think the industry is getting a bad deal, so far.
Do any of the characters you’re working on right now have any connection to your favorite anime characters?
There is a character that I know that I really like and that I’d love to see on the show.
I’ve always wanted to work with a character who I’m obsessed with, so it was really a surprise for me.
So if I had to pick one, it would be that one.
You know, if there’s one thing I’m going to be watching on the air right now, it’s the new show I’ve got in development called The Girl Who Lived.
It has this really strong sense, really good quality, and there’s this very interesting connection to The Boy Who Loved Me.
Are there any characters that you guys would love to work on?
[laughs]Yeah, I’d definitely love to be a part of that, yeah.
I love that show, too.
I’d like to work more with that character.
I’m not really into that kind of work, but if you could pick one character that you’d like me to work in a certain way, that would be it.
And I think I’d be good at that.
Do they have any special powers or abilities?
We know they have them. I know
