Interview on ANNCast 04-15-2010

The topics were mostly about the state of the Anime industry and my research on said topic. I forgot how much fun it is to talk about the topic with English-speakers, and with people with similar (Western) aesthetic senses. I’ll be on high for the rest of the day, if not the week.
Three regrets though:
1. I forgot to ask if ANN would be willing to post some of my reports or papers on their site in the future. ANN has some really good columnists over there, and it looks like they are getting more every week. I just realized something the other day, but posting my theses on ANN would be a great way to get feedback from a Western perspective and to kind of get the word out on some of the trends I see coming out.
2. Just a little worried whether I said anything that would be covered by an NDA. I don’t think I did, but you always worry about those things after the fact – even if its irrational. (Weak Smile). We are such a small company that we can’t afford to alienate or piss of clients, let alone fend off lawsuits (even weaker smile.)
But then again, the more I think about it I’m pretty sure I didn’t say anything specific enough to alert anyone, and nothing even vaguely related to any projects covered in NDA’s at all.
3. Oh, but my biggest regret is that I forgot to mention the one project I WAS cleared to talk about: www.animaxis.com (!)
