  4. No worries. Only too happy to provide clarification and yes, the interview was indeed properly applied for in advance. And again, the two reporters credited with the interview were not involved with the panels. Nor did they have a photographer. So rest assured that no rules were stepped upon, nor even bent in conducting the interview. Thanks again for the feedback! EDIT: I’ve contacted those involved and been told that while they did have a photographer, they did not take any panel slide pictures. (Nor are they in any pics in the piece since they were the ones taking them). Added for clarification.
  5. Some points of clarification may be in order here. -The interview was properly applied for and approved in advance. The “guerilla” aspect is somewhat of an inside joke since, due to a con scheduling mishap, there was nowhere to actually conduct the interview, despite it being approved. Hence it was done on-the-go. -The interview was not conducted in an elevator. None of the audio file I was given to transcribe was recorded anywhere other than in the hallway. Were there some setup questions asked elsewhere? Obviously, not being there, I can’t say. But nothing was recorded for the interview in an elevator. -Nothing in the audio file suggests that he felt in anyway uncomfortable. In fact, I was actually surprised at how relaxed and forthcoming his answers were. He certainly sounded quite happy imo. And there’s no awkward body language reflected in the multitude of photographs he took with the interviewers, most of which did not end up being included in the article. -I can’t speak to the actions of any photographers, since I didn’t have anyone approach me and ask to cover the panels, however I am aware photographs were explicitly allowed in one panel and not the other. I’ve received photographs from the panel in which they were permitted, from several people at the time, in fact, however none of them were of the slides. TL;DR - The interview was authorized, conducted with the permission of the interviewee, and done with his kind blessing “on-the-go” because despite being approved in advance there was nowhere proper to do it. Again, since I wasn’t there in person, there’s a limit to any insight I can provide, however the above may be useful in clarifying the actual conditions the interview was conducted under. Thanks for the feedback though. It’s much appreciated and I’ll be sure to pass it along. Thanks for reading!
  6. While not overly Macross-related, this may prove interesting for anyone that is looking for a little background noise while recovering from the Xmas/New Years food coma. http://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-120-what-is-anime/

  9. Ah, I recall the one. Don’t remember the name off the top of my head sorry. Try Esper Taro tho. It’s good until the Southern Cross mecha come in and wreck it for everyone ;-)
  10. The manga you are thinking of is Plamo Tensai Esper Taro.
  11. This episode we grab a table at SDCon, set up a mic, and see who wants to talk to us. Yes, it's open mic at the SpeakerPODcast and it's all about YOU - the fans. (PS. It's also kinda noisy ^^; ) http://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-117-super-dimensional-chaos-2018/
