Here’s our first junket interview to be released—our talk with Fred Gallagher, the artist behind the Megatokyo comic! Megatokyo was, as readers might know, a formative influence in my early fandom years at the turn of the last decade. I was able to talk to Fred about his influences from the visual novel/dating sim scene, his thoughts about current anime, his artistic habits, and even something about Ping vs Hatsune Miku. Check it out!
Michael lives in the Los Angeles area, and has been into anime since he saw Neon Genesis Evangelion in 1999. Some of his favorite shows include Full Metal Alchemist, Honey and Clover, and Welcome to the NHK!. Since 2003 he has gone to at least one anime convention every year. A public radio junkie, which naturally led to podcasting, he now holds a seminary degree and is looking to become Dr. Rev. Otaku Bible Man any day now.
