Last week, we had the amazing opportunity to meet and conduct a Reddit AMA on /r/anime with Academy Award nominee and Tokyo Ghoul director Shuhei Morita. Meeting such an interesting and accomplished industry figure was a valuable experience for both us at OTAQUEST as well as for Western anime fans, a number of which shared a lot of thoughtful and insightful questions to ask. Below are some of our favorites from the thread:
Finally, we have a special set of questions that were asked especially by the community from the Tokyo Ghoul subreddit:
By bringing the creative to Reddit, we hope that we have been able to help western fans better understand the story of Shuhei Morita’s career, as well as the anime industry as a whole. From the questions in the thread, it certainly seems that was the case - everyone was very thoughtful and appreciative, even when Morita’s answers perhaps weren’t what users were looking for.
We will continue to bring creatives to the western audience in more AMAs, so keep an eye out for more news regarding that. In the meantime, you can check out the full AMA here.
