Okay, I did not actually have breakfast with Makoto Shinkai nor am I auctioning off a meal with this anime director. But I did attend a press conference with Makoto Shinkai on the last morning of Otakon 2011 and recorded all the questions that various members of the press asked. Erin and Noah from the Ninja Consultant podcast edited my audio if you wanted to listen to the questions we asked and more importantly hear the answers we got. If you can’t attend NYAF this year than this worth a listen because Makoto Shinkai is definitely a director to keep your eye on. Anime Diet and ANN also wrote up transcripts of the event if you want to read those as well.
