Yui Makino Interview – NYAF 2009
Yui Makino…singer…seiyuu…and all-around down-to-earth woman. I really had a great time sitting down talking to her. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean. By the end, you’ll be doing this :bloody:
I want to mention a big thanks to the folks at Sony Music Japan for allowing me to talk and video record our interview. And also for allowing me to use clips from her latest single “Tanpopo Suisha”.
Note: She held my iPod nano! YAY!!!!! (it’s what I used to cover the convention).
For people who are not aware, Yui (or Yuuchi as she would like to be called during her concerts) is the Japanese voice behind Princess Sakura of CLAMP’s TSUBASA RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE. And as it turns out, FUNimation is releasing Season One on Blu-Ray November 17. You can pre-order it now so you can hear either Yui or Monica Rial’s voice in high-definition. OMG! 😛
And Season 2 box set will street on Dec 29.
And now, on to the video…
So far, my favorite question to Yui was about her “masochist” way of overcoming stage fright. And her answer was pretty funny. And I just loved her tiny voice. At the start of the interview, I made a mistake by not pressing the “record” button on my iPod. It was sooo embarrasing. So Yui, Sony reps and I laughed it off and I profusely apologized and she was cool about it. Awwwwe! :sorry:
