|Unedited Feed from the Nabeshin panel at Anime-Expo 2010. Transcription: bayoab
Note: ( ) is usually commenting on the panel and was not said.
13:17:20 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Introducing
13:17:29 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> If you have any gifts or if you want to give him money, go ahead.
13:17:32 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Especially cute girls.
13:18:28 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Can we start?
13:18:43 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Introducing himself
13:18:54 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> everyone, what the hell are you doing here today?
13:19:00 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (This interpreter is awesome)
13:19:06 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Thank you for coming to see Nabeshin today.
13:19:24 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Honestly, I didn't even imagine this many people waiting to see me.
13:19:32 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Especially the cute girls.
13:19:52 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Okay, we're going to lock the doors so the cute girls can't get out, but the boys can get right out.
13:20:06 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But really, thank you boys and girls both for coming to see me.
13:20:09 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I really appreciate it.
13:20:20 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But Nabeshin came here with absolutely nothing to talk about.
13:20:36 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> If you have any questions, I'm prepared to answer anything you want to ask.
13:20:45 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Everything is OK.
13:21:09 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (Comparing afros with the crowd)
13:21:31 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Since you are here, I'm no longer #1 afro, so you gotta get out.
13:21:47 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Any one you know around you with afro hair?
13:22:02 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Can they pull something out of their afro hair?
13:22:16 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> If you can do that, please introduce me to them. We'll probably be friends.
13:23:13 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (Nabeshin is awesome....)
13:23:25 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (the moderator said no marriage questions)
13:23:32 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (Nabeshin asks back at the crowd, who wants to marry me?)
13:23:40 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> You men, why do you want to marry me?
13:24:04 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Who wants to get married to Nabeshin?
13:24:07 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Girls, raise your hand....
13:24:10 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Camera...camera...camera...
13:24:21 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> About 30... good number.
13:24:30 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Do you think 30 girls in my hotel room today?
13:24:44 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> If you don't fit all at once, then just come one at a time.
13:24:50 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I will show you the power of Afro.
13:25:16 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I'm very nervous right now because I didn't expect this many people to welcome me
13:25:38 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I hope my wife in Japan is not watching this right now.
13:26:02 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: Who came up with the idea of you playing NB in Tenchi Muyo GXP and do explosions really solve everything?
13:26:21 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: The story writer came up with it. He's a huge fan of Nabeshin.
13:26:41 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But for Tenchi Muyo, the afro hair is not acceptable.
13:26:54 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> That's why he became a little robot NB. So he was talking, but no afro.
13:27:52 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: When did you decide that you want to become an afro?
13:28:10 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: Okay, every show he goes to, he gets asked that question. And I'm saying the sme thing
13:28:15 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> one thing, god told me, I will give you afro.
13:28:40 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> god has given me the power and strength to become the greatest animator at the same time as i inherited this afro
13:29:06 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> however, god can be very mean some times, I can't keep the afro forever, i gotta (perm?) my hair every 3 months
13:29:35 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q; Are you going to come back next year?
13:29:45 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A; Okay, but you have to pay for the flight tickets.
13:30:31 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I've never been to a convention on this scale before. But I would love to come next year if you call AX and request to get Nabeshin again.
13:30:41 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> If we can put $20 each, I think that would cover it.
13:30:54 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> There will be a huge cup waiting at the exit door. Donations are welcome.
13:31:14 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q; What are your influences for things like Excel Saga?
13:31:55 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A; Excel saga already had a manga.
13:32:26 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> However, the tv company, the studio, actually rejected the original anime, of the manga transferred straight to the TV.
13:32:43 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Okay, there are some regulations that are not permitted for underage children ...
13:32:57 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> And there is censorship in Japan's TV that they have to follow, so they had to alter a loot of things
13:33:12 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> On top of that I had to create the TV version from the original manga. So I went through a lot of consideration.
13:33:30 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> As a result, the parts that had to be deleted or omitted, I just put nabeshin in that scene and it went perfectly.
13:33:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> So without Nabeshin, there is no Excel Saga.
13:33:58 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> On the other hand, Nerima Daikon brothers is a pure original from Nabeshin.
13:34:22 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Okay, there is no writer or animator or anything that influenced him. He came up with everything and he put everything from his thoughts into this tv series.
13:34:46 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I think that Nabeshin's most desirable tv that he's ever produced is Nerima Daikon becausethat came from his heart.
13:34:58 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> However, Nabeshin is actually on Excel way more often, so I do like it.
13:35:10 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Please buy the DVDs of both series.
13:35:25 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (Guy has them and nabeshin wants applause)
13:35:35 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Buy buy buy buy
13:35:36 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> go go go
13:36:09 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: So you have to make an anime about an afro? What's the story?
13:36:17 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A; are you talking about like from the birth of afro to the death?
13:36:40 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> One day, nabeshin is sitting here, and the afro comes and attacks on Nabeshin
13:36:45 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> and attaches itself....
13:36:54 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> and then it gives him the power to make animation.
13:37:12 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> and as result, I became a successful animator, I came here and met you guys. The end.
13:37:21 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> This is a good story, maybe I can think about this. Coming soon.
13:37:25 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Questions from girls please
13:37:59 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: (Girl asks a fail question)
13:38:01 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A; do you know DVD?
13:38:07 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> That shiny thing.. that spins...
13:38:16 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> It's on sale... please everyone go get to buying.
13:38:34 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Please tell her where to buy it
13:38:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Do you have money?
13:38:49 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Okay, you have to go and get it, ask him where the store is immediately after.
13:39:01 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> That is also one of my favorites, so seriously.
13:39:22 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> You can watch it online... but if you buy it, Nabeshin would be very happy.
13:39:32 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: What your inspiration was for Pan Daikon?
13:40:13 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: First I came up with Nerima daiko, and the first 3 characters were hideki, mako(?) and (missed)
13:40:22 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I thought the boys would go crazy with mako, she's cute...
13:40:30 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> and the girls would go crazy with ichiro, i was hoping
13:40:38 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> And I felt the old man, would probably like hideki
13:41:00 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> And other than those groups, everyone would like a animal, so I came up with Pan Daikon.
13:41:24 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> That encourages him to make Nerima for everyone from small children to an old audience... everyone
13:41:37 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But since it was beautiful, great work, Nabeshin shouldn't be there.
13:42:20 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: Did you have trouble getting through customs at LAX with all the guns in your hair?
13:42:41 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: I always get caught on the metal detector.
13:42:49 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But even though I get caught there, there are too many of them, they can't kill it.
13:42:58 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> To be honest, I can't even count how many guns I have in my head.
13:43:12 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But if you want to know the secret of my afro, please come to my room.
13:43:38 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: What inspired you to make Puni Puni Poemi?
13:43:52 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: well, that was while i was making excel saga, I just went all the way and between time i just made that
13:44:15 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> There was a poster in an excel saga ep with a PPP poster in it, he forgets which ep
13:45:15 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (The audience is clarifying which ep)
13:45:27 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Yes, you are right, there was a poster on Sandra's wall, but he was already make it..
13:45:36 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But Sandra actually made PPP. He did a great job.,
13:45:37 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> That's a lie
13:45:41 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I did it.
13:45:52 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But that is true that while I was making excel saga, that idea came and i just made it right away.
13:46:22 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: What inspires your comedic take on anime?
13:46:28 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: God.
13:46:32 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> has come up on me...
13:46:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> that answer your question....
13:46:40 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> do you believe me?
13:46:46 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> it's a huge lie though...
13:47:10 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Well, my outlook on life is everyday. I love fun and enjoyment. So that's my daily life and i'm continuing that.
13:47:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Well, I hope that will translate to my work, that everyone enjoys the comedy part and everything about my work.
13:47:40 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> So you can enjoy it.
13:48:05 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: The last episode of excel saga, what was going through your head when you were making it.
13:48:25 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: The missing episode you mean? the last ep?
13:48:34 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> For TV, i made 25 episodes
13:48:59 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> There were so many cuts and tv production of "you can't show this" " you can't do this" etc
13:49:22 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> And that accumulation of agony and the staff were so eager to put those scenes so we exploited it and put everything in 26
13:49:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> So that lost episode is everything that is not supposed to be featured on TV
13:49:52 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But after completion, I could see why they didn't want to air this one.
13:50:00 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But everyone who sees it enjoys it, I'm glad.
13:50:13 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I will make the animation that will not be featured on TV again.
13:50:19 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> You guys really like those...
13:50:22 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Okay next...
13:50:43 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: If the nabeshin from excel and nerima got into a fight, who would win and why?
13:50:50 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: Karaoke battle, nerima one....
13:51:02 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Battle with weapons and guns, definitely excel
13:51:17 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Well, either way, the winner is Nabeshin, so remember that.
13:51:33 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: What do you do with the pictures you take with a con?
13:51:57 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Do you delete them or do you keep them?
13:52:35 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (They are clarifying)
13:53:18 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> He took a picture at a previous convention with a girls ass near his face
13:53:37 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A; just bring her over again and I'll do it again.
13:53:55 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Any other girls who want to volunteer, you are welcome to stick your beautiful rears to my face
13:53:58 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I'm serious, dead serious
13:54:15 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: What inspired you with Wallflower?
13:54:36 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: Unfortunately, there was a manga comic there. Everything was not a nabeshin original idea.
13:55:21 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I was hoping that all the girls around the world would be inspired by the story and the character, that's why i got a lot of naked boys in the picture
13:55:27 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Anyone had a bloody nose after seeing Wallflower?
13:55:33 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> That girl is lying....
13:55:47 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I think you can enjoy many different ways to see that animation?
13:56:05 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: For the wallflower, did the mangaka ask you to stick to the story?
13:56:27 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Did they say where to end it? And did you base the guys on yourself?
13:57:27 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: I followed the direction of the story of the manga as much as I could.
13:57:47 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> The story board itself, is a little switch of a few episodes, but the story is almost the same as the original manga.
13:58:12 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> There is one section called Ladies' Way that is an original that I came up with so I could be in it.
13:58:30 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> For the male parts of the body structures, that is based on the manga. I translated it very well.
13:58:45 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> But my concern, the biggest concern to the end was how do I describe men's nipple.
13:59:06 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Who thinks I should draw the nipples of guys?
13:59:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> In japan... you are considered a pervert if you say that in Japan (just taught the audience how to say nipple in Japanese)
13:59:56 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: The episode of Hayate you were in, was that your wife and kids doing their own voices?
14:00:12 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: The voice of Nabeshin is always Nabeshin.
14:00:25 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Since they are not entertainers, his wife and child could not be the voice.
14:00:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> So the voice actresses actually covered it.
14:00:51 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Well, but her voice was so beautiful, I actually considered, I could replace it as my wife.
14:01:00 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> You know the best wife, listen to me, voice is number one.
14:01:30 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: Sing the nabeshin theme song for us?
14:01:53 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A: I can't remember it well but are you ready with your cameras
14:02:43 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Tomorrow will be another panel or an autograph section. come back again and I will rememebr the entire song and I will sing it for you.
14:03:10 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Well, just to warn you, the other side of is the AKB thingy... but this is more important.
14:03:31 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> You all better come tomorrow.
14:03:39 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I want to sneak out and go to AKB tomorrow?
14:03:45 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Can I? No?
14:04:26 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Q: Who else outside of Nabeshin can you recommend?
14:04:31 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (for entertainment that is)
14:04:54 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> A; There's a talk about this... that all animation starts with nabeshin and ends with nabeshin.
14:05:15 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (Censored)
14:05:20 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> One more...
14:05:23 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Some big question...
14:05:48 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (She googled the Naebshin lyrics)
14:05:56 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I'll do it tomorrow
14:06:05 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> or wait....I'll do it
14:06:25 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Right now? Sorry, we don't have time.
14:06:34 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Tomorrow? Or do you want to come to my room tonight?
14:06:50 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> I will do it tomorrow. There will be an autograph session and we'll also do Q&A.
14:07:04 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> (Applause for Nabeshin)
14:07:21 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> End
14:08:34 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> One more thing
14:08:38 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> Big huge announcement for you guys.
14:09:09 <bay|AX|Nabeshin> He has a brand new book available. They will be selling it tomorrow.
