13:21:19 <bay|AX|Sunrise> i was really surprised by the cheering when the screen came up

13:24:37 <bay|AX|Sunrise> This is based on a manga
13:25:01 <bay|AX|Sunrise> Actually when they first sent it to sunrise asking for it to be made, i said no
13:25:09 <bay|AX|Sunrise> why do you ask, because it was so stupid
13:25:48 <bay|AX|Sunrise> when they first came to us, it was like "come on, sunrise makes gundam", but i thought that if the gintama director, mr takamatsu does it, he would do a good job'
13:26:07 <bay|AX|Sunrise> so when i went to takamatsu and asked him if he would be interested, he said "wow, it's so stupid, let's do it"
13:26:21 <bay|AX|Sunrise> and since you guys cheered for it so much, i guess it was a good decision
