12:32:51 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> for now, we are going to ask him some blue exoricst question.. like
12:32:54 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> how was the tv series born
12:33:30 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> it started it with one imgae board, a sketch, i was also the president of a-1 pictures, one of the few animators, wrote a drawing sketch of blue exorcist, and it was beautiful, and many animators were desiring to adapt the comic book to the tv animation series
12:33:42 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> like kazue katou's illustration were so beautiful and the design was wonderful
12:34:04 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> even thought it was one sketch, it was as if it was moving, so we started the project, so the animators had a very high motivation for making the series
12:34:15 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> are there any behind the scenes some secret stories you can share...
12:34:23 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> not a secret, but you can see a piece of durarara at the end....
12:34:35 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> at the very end, there is the kubinashi rider who is actually celty from durara
12:34:49 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> one of the writers, mr yamaguchi loves to throw the kubinashi rider in all his titles
12:34:59 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> previously was in gakkou no kaidan
12:35:03 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> so you can see a piece of it in the last episode
12:35:07 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> how many of you have seen the last episode
12:35:20 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> how popular is it in japan?
12:35:26 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> the tv series was very popular
12:35:41 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> and in japan, the social game... which start, this summer, and it has about 450k registered
12:35:46 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> and not only the tv show, but the psp game
12:35:59 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> and there is many kinds of blue exorcist coming

12:37:02 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> but the major factors like their brotherhood and parenthood and friendship, these factors will be the same
12:37:22 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> do you have a favorite character or thing in the tv series
12:37:55 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> my favorite is yuikio and lin, i like both characters, i like the relationship, i like how yukio acts as an elder... and sometimes in a particular situation it chagnes, as yukio hesistates or looses his way, then he acts like the elder brother
12:38:01 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> before the tv series, i was worried about the popularity of the theme
12:38:14 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> but the tv series and he jumped into the ranking...and then yukio...i worried about him
12:38:29 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> but i'm sure he's popular here in the states, but in japan, in the end of te series, he jumped into the popularity
12:38:51 <bay|NYCC|Aniplex> are there any characters you are like (missed)
