Noburo Ishiguro at Otakon 2011

Last year, Noburo Ishiguro attended Otakon 2011, so I decided to report on some of his activities at the convention.  One of the events that he was participating in was a Q & A session, so Mechamaniac and I decided to solicit Macross World members  for questions to ask him.  We only got one question, and that was from Xard.  As it would turn out, there was only enough time to ask Ishiguro one question, so it worked out perfectly.  Xard wanted to know if Ishiguro stood back and let Shoji Kawamori have full reign over Macross: Do You Remember Love?, or if the movie was a collaborative effort between the two.   A good question since both men are credited as the directors of the movie, but fans don’t know who exactly did what.

Also included in my report is the complete transcript of Ishiguro’s speech and Q & A session, as well as my account of his autograph session, and the items that he donated to Otakon’s charity auction for the 2011 Japan Relief.  One of which was a Macross watercolor sketch by Haruhiko Mikimoto.  I do not believe that this particular watercolor sketch has ever been published in any art book or magazine.
