“When making an original work, what challenges do you have pitching it to a studio or production team? Why is Pipe the best Gadoll ever?”

“Were you nervous to see how the audience would react to the twist in Episode 2, or were you confident that they would like the direction you took DECA-DENCE in?”

“How has COVID-19 impacted your team’s work? How has it impacted the anime industry in general?”

“How did you come up with the idea for the premise of DECA-DENCE? It’s super-original and the twist in Episode 2 blew my mind. What was your thought process when coming up with it?”

“I wanted to know what your creation process was like? You come up with very abstract and brilliant original works, and I wanted to know how such pieces came to fruition. Also, what is a good way to deal with writers block?”

“…can you give your thoughts on what went behind Kaburagi’s design and characterization? Because he’s honestly one of the most attractive men in anime I’ve seen in years.”

“Have you ever given any insight into how you’ve wanted the shows you’ve worked on to be dubbed? Have you watched the English versions of the Death Parade or Mob Psycho 100? And if so, what were your thoughts?”
