Interview with Norihiro Yagi and Akihisa Ikeda (from 2008)

Once upon a time I said that we'll never get three releases in three days ever again. If there is one thing life has taught me it's that one should never use words like 'never'. Here, gentle readers, is the interview with Norihiro Yagi and Akihisa Ikeda from the R+V databooks. It's old, from 2008, but has some fun stuff about the atmosphere of Yagi's studio and his thoughts on the Claymore anime.

Eternal gratitude to our wonderful translators, Utsune and Rigarudo, and to Indigo for helping with the cleaning. In particular, I'd like to thank Utsune for helping me track this down from the references on Yagi's Japanese wikipedia page and confirming from the Amazon reviews that it existed. See how far we go to bring you quality content?

Enjoy!

PS. My Japanese has progressed the the point where I can do tiny spot translations of things I can guess the meaning of! See the little works bio of Yagi on page 3? That was me ^^ Took me, like, an hour and I got stuck on the Ikeda one. Next up: databooks!
