With the addition of the Tatami Galaxy to crunchyroll, I thought I'd translate an interview with Masaaki Yuasa. This interview was released on マイナビ in April 2010, so just before the release of the anime adaptation.
- Did you have a target audience? Like people of the same generation as the characters, or maybe adults who would feel nostalgic watching them? Minami: Both. I want the children of today to enjoy it, and I also want the adults with money to enjoy it as well so that they would feel it was… Continue reading Seiji Kishi Interview on Tsuki ga Kirei – Part 3/3
