Tim Eldred Interviews Leiji Matsumoto (and We have Questions!)
I’m not sure exactly when but I know it’s happening very, very soon. starblazers.com‘s Tim Eldred will interview Leiji Matsumoto and fans have been submitting questions in the hope that they will be picked up and….OMG….answered.
So a group of us, (iskra, yamiangie, myself) dubbed ourselves the Uchu Hotaru no Kai (宇宙ホタルの会 = Space Firefly Society) and sent in 5 questions.
Our questions are:
1). What led you to develop the ring of time concept for your works instead of just having a star system?
2). What Western “wild west” works inspired Gun Frontier?
3). Which of the original Space Pirate Captain Harlock crew members will we see in the CG film?
4). What is the fate of the online vols. 9 and 10 of the Ring of the Nibelungs manga?
[The website hosting these two volumes isn’t functioning, and the volumes don’t exist in print, so there seems to be no way to read, let alone acquire, these crucial books!]
5). What foreign languages did you study?
Anyway, happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it and a thank you to Mr. Matsumoto for enriching our worlds.
