Tomino Yoshiyuki Q&A at Japan Expo 2019, July 6

if you haven’t read it yet, here’s the article with my impressions on the first G-Reco compilation movie and the July 5 Q&A.

You can find other Tomino related events or interviews I translated in the past on this page.

Director Tomino held an around 30 minutes long Q&A on July 6, the third day of Japan Expo 2019. When he stepped on stage along with the MC and the translator, they explained how this was supposed to be a panel. What happened is, Tomino told Japan Expo’s staff beforehand how it’s his first time visiting France, so he doesn’t feel like talking about himself or his career, etc. Instead, he wanted to hear the audience speak. He wanted to hear our opinions on his works, answer our questions and chat with us. So they decided on holding a Q&A instead.

There were so many questions, I wouldn’t have been able to listen to all the answers if I concentrated on taking notes. So I just wrote down everything in my head. As such it’s possible I forgot certain parts or merged certain answers together. And I’ll update the post if I remember more.

Tomino Yoshiyuki interview on CCA&F91 4K Remaster Boxes

Interview was published by Comic Natalie at the end of June 2018. The boxes released on June 22nd 2018. I don’t really have anything to say besides that as always Tomino is too harsh on his own works. G Reco is one of my favorite show of the decade, and my favorite recent Gundam show with GBF, so looking forward to the movies. The part at the end about SHOWROOM & ZOZOTOWN got RT a lot by Japanese people I follow, which is how I first saw this interview. I only ended up reading it now though, and I thought I might as well translate it and share it. It’s my Eid present to everyone I guess.

Tomino said G Reco takes place 500 years AFTER Turn A

g reco gundam café august 27 2015 event

The G Reco cap that Tomino worn during the event won’t be commercialized.

I edited the post as I added more tweets and found a partial transcription hereIt’s by Inuyou, a nice person who often drew Mouretsu Pirates pics when the show was airing.I think I covered everything I could find now.

Tomino was invited the 27th of August 2015 at the Gundam Café for an event. The  Sunrise producer of G Reco, Ogata Naohiro(nicknamed Ogata P) was present along with Bell’s seiyuu Ishii Mark. Yoshida Kenichi was supposed to attend too but he had last minute circumstances. They talked about Gundam in general. It was streamed online but it was blocked outside Japan so I didn’t watch it. On twitter there’s some impressions and quotes by Tomino picked by people who watched the event. I mainly picked stuff from this account. Instead of going through the twitter tag, you can also find all the related tweets on matome sites like here. I’m too lazy to link every single tweet I translated.
