Last year, Princess Principal was one of my surprise favorites. In fact, I think it took a lot of people by surprise – it seemingly came out of nowhere and blew everyone away with its adorable yet bad-ass characters, interesting and dynamic story, and its awesome steam punk setting.
Then, I received another welcomed surprise at AnimeNYC 2017, where I was freelancing as a news correspondent for Anime News Network. I was able to interview Princess Principal’s director, Misaki Tachibana! What stuck out to me about Tachibana-sensei is how much thought went into all of his answers. It’s obvious that he also put a lot of thought and care into the series itself – which is why it was such a success.
Please read my interview with Misaki Tachibana, where we discuss the anime’s premise, the feelings between Ange and Princess, the Black Lizard Planet, and more. I also did a panel report on Tachibana’s other events, such as Q & A session. Be sure to check that out as well!
I will be attending AnimeNYC as a new correspondent for ANN again this year. I already had the honor of doing a pre-convention interview with singer/songwriter TRUE and the adorable singer Luna Haruna!
A huge thank you goes out to Anime News Network and the staff at AnimeNYC. I am looking forward to this year’s convention! ^.^
