This was a little experiment in live streaming, courtesy of my iPhone and Ustream! It was recorded today, on Jan 25th, starting around 5:15 PM. You can see a lot of the folks TV Tokyo interviewed, including myself–however, yes, the audio was knocked out during my interview for some reason. (It was restored later.) Fortunately, I should be able to recover the audio once I get a copy of the official DVD…basically, they interviewed me and Justin, the guy standing next to me, about why we liked Haruhi, when we heard about it, etc. I described its originality and the fearlessness of Haruhi’s character as being appealing points–and how I could relate to Kyon since I work with such crazy dreamers here on Anime Diet :)
Thanks for everyone who watched us live–and now you can see it for posterity!
