Osamu Kobayashi, an industry veteran who most will recognise as the man behind Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad‘s anime adaptation, held a talk event at the end of December alongside fellow veterans and industry legends. As is typical for these events, recording them isn’t an option, but certain people who attended were kind enough to take notes during it and post them up on Twitter for those who couldn’t. Some extracts that came from it have been mentioned in passing during previous posts, but it only seems right to just translate and compile the whole lot here for everyone. The lack of a specific topic for the event means there’s a wide spread of info that’s popped up from it, from news regarding certain guests’ new projects right down to simple trivia, so I’ve split it all up into news, highlights, and trivia just to make sure it doesn’t turn into one big mess of information.
Host: Osamu Kobayashi
Guests: Mitsuo Iso, Masaaki Yuasa, Takashi Mukouda, Kiyotaka Oshiyama and C-san (webgen animator currently working with a 3DCG company who doesn’t want to be named. Hint: K-san would be more appropriate, known for a specific style of FX animation.)
