Do you think Koito from Phantom World is similar to Ogiue to some extent (for one, they both initially seems to shun social relationships out of fear of harming others with what they can do)?

Halimun Muhammad

One thing they have in common is that I think both characters are fantastic.

I think it's not entirely clear if Koito avoids social contact out of fear of hurting others (unless I missed something while watching!), but her general reticence and the degree to which the show breaks down their facades is fairly Ogiue-esque.

What do you think about Robot Girls Z?

Halimun Muhammad

The show can be very hit or miss from episode to episode, but I appreciate the really obscure robot jokes.

Would you rather speak to Tim Burton or eat at a Tim Horton?

Because it's far more likely for me to find a Tim Horton's than speak with Tim Burton, I think Burton would take priority. If I got to speak with Tim Burton every day for some reason, things might change.

Um any thoughts about the overall presentation/direction of the new Gatcha ? I feel that its ideas are right on but its delivery feels hazy.??

I think it suffers a bit from embodying philosophical concepts into characters (as most often people want a kind of realism to characters and representing a certain idea goes somewhat opposite that), but that it still does a good job of rendering them as "characters" nevertheless.

What current anime are you watching?

A lot of shows! I'm really enjoying My Love Story, Snow White with the Red Hair, Gatchaman Crowds Insight, and Aquarion Logos. Of these, Gatchaman Crowds Insight is probably my favorite. It's a super clever show and I'm impressed with how they've moved forward from Season 1.

How long do you think Nidaime is going to go now that it's run longer than the original Genshiken?

I feel like it has so much more steam with so many little storylines to finish. I hope it runs for at least another 9 or 10 volumes, but I predict it'll be a little more like 4 or 5.

What is your favourite colour (Ogiue does not count as a colour)?

I've always been fond of the color purple, doubly so because of its association with the old Sega Saturn game NiGHTS into dreams (my favorite game ever).
