Interview Questions for May’n for AFA 2011

[We’re eighteen days away from May’n’s Key Club appearance, I myself cannot wait. I thought it’d be a good time to continue the hype. Everyone planning on going should get their tickets soon and make sure that we show our Macross singers some love for the rare times they actually come to the U.S.

Some time last year Vanpang collected some questions from MW members to ask during his interview with May’n. Together with other MW members (James Wong, Ikhii, Rei) he was lucky enough to have a sitdown with the Galactic Fairy herself]

Interview with May’n during AFA 09, Singapore

[Editor’s note: I’ve been meaning to post our very own member Vanpang and Ikhii’s interviews on the front page since day one. In celebration of May’n’s World Tour and it’s US leg, I guess there’s no better time than now to get to it. Next week will be his 2011 follow up. Better late than never...]

The Anime Festival Asia 2009 (AFA 2009) was held at Suntec Convention & Exhibition Centre, Singapore on the 21st and 22nd November 2009.  AFA09 spanned over 5,000 square metres of floorspace at the convention hall and is the biggest anime convention in South East Asia.  The AFA09 organizers managed to get an impressive list of famous artistes and personalities in the anime industry to participate in AFA09. Those personalities included Nakabayashi Mei (aka “May’n”), Yoshiki Fukuyama, Ichirou Mizuki, Shoko Nakagawa (aka “Shoko-Tan”), Kaname, Danny Choo and Director Mamoru Hosoda (The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars)

Macrossworld members ikhii and vanpang had an opportunity to interview May’n. However we regret to inform that we did not manage to interview Yoshiki Fukuyama due to uninformed changes of his schedule at the very last minute.
