Anime Diet Radio returns! Sorry for the slight lateness. In this very special episode of Anime Diet Radio, we have a special guest for an interview–Chuu Aino, aka “Director-chan,” of the SoCal Sera Myu Sailor Moon Movie Project! She’s here to talk about the fan-made musical film of Sailor Moon that is currently in production and due out in 2010. It was a great interview, and we decided to not only offer the edited version in this podcast, but also have the full unedited (and full of Sailor Moon otaku nerdfacts) interview available for download too. It was a privilege talking to her and we wish the project all the best!
Of course, we have our usual news items, this time about schoolgirl fashions being influenced by anime, a government romance anime about jury duty, and an otaku pretending to give up the faith. Plus, there’s always the mailbag section as well.
A few minor technical hiccups occurred along the way–a very small bit of Ray’s intro was missing, in which he accused me of not being as funny as I could be, hence the exchange later on. :) There was also very slight crackling during the interview as well, though some of it is more apparent in the uncut version than in the edited version. Apologies for all that!
