Hello Reddit! I am Sunao Katabuchi, director & writer of Black Lagoon & Mai Mai Miracle! AMA!
EDIT: Thank you Reddit for all your questions! It's been great but I have to get to work now - it's after 9am here in Tokyo. Thanks for coming along.
Hello everyone! This is Sunao Katabuchi, assistant director on Kiki's Delivery Service, writer and director of Black Lagoon and Mai Mai Miracle.
This is my first AMA and I'll be here answering your questions for an hour (it's 8am in Tokyo!). The answers will be posted by an interpreter but all answers will come from me. It may take a bit longer than you're used to so bear with us!
My film Mai Mai Miracle is currently crowdfunding an English language version for release in the UK, US, ROI and Canada. Please check out the link below.
