New Sailor Moon Interviews on ANIMAX!

Dear Moonies: We know you are all anxious! Yes, we read this story tonight about new DVDs in Mexico and Latin America, but we are waiting for official confirmation. There is an image of Sailor Moon on Capital 8's site (which is a very good sign) but there is no press release listed anywhere, and we just want to be sure. We're a little surprised that we don't see the correct copyright credentials on that image, since they are all over the images (or in proximity of them) in Italy. We have contacted relevant official sources for confirmation and we will comment on this as soon as possible!


Now, back to what this post is really about:


Hours ago, reader Jim! sent us these links to some new interviews on YouTube which came from a series of specials on ANIMAX. Creators, is a talk show on ANIMAX that is hosted by Kyan Chiaki (the cosplayer at the Sailor Moon DVD Launch & Reunion Event) and actor Kendo Kobayashi. On the shows which aired on the Saturdays, February 6th and 13th, three very special guests were featured! Directors Junichi Sato and Kunihiko Ikuhara, as well as Sailor Moon herself, Kotono Mitsuishi were interviewed on the talk show. The three of them shared the untold story of how the show was born, and how it changed the industry. Kotono also shared some special memories of her time on the show, and even moves a giant Sailor Moon plush around while performing her infamous monologue right after her transformation! Unfortunately, we are really busy behind the scenes of Moon Chase with our big endeavour coming this Friday, and trying to get this rumor confirmed. We don't have a lot of time to watch this interview - but know that we are working on getting something related to this interview to you fans through other, more exciting avenues. In the meantime, please watch it here:

Junichi continued (and still is) on the show yesterday and next week, for his work on Keroro Gunso (better known in English as Sgt. Frog).

I didn't get a chance to watch the interviews. We are working to get these to you all though - we found someone to put the subtitles on the video itself, now all we need is a translator. I think this is going to be too much to ask of the three we use to help translate little things on this site, but I will work on this more tonight!

can't wait until these get translated! I just kept watching it even though I had no idea what they were saying. This is awesome!

Holy [cuss word], now THIS is the type of stuff I like to know about!

Come on sailordees, I'm dieing to know on what they said (well, not really, I'm exaggerating, but that's not the point)!

Here's the thing - they are speaking very fast and I am still learning Japanese so I have to watch something over and over again a few times before I actually understand it. I need a lot of time to watch this and if I could have a clone to take care of my RL stuff for the next 3 weeks so I could actually relax, then I'd have time to at least tell you what's in this interview!

Rest assured, I am working on this as fast as I can to uhh "outsource"? Just missing one piece of the puzzle. If I don't hear back from the people I contacted by tomorrow I'll try someone else.

Very nice links! Too bad I hardly know any japanese.

I want to learn soon and I know you are busy to watch them. Thankyou for the links though! ^^
