Isaac is a fun guy, really. Love talking to him, really energetic, and the most flame-boyant hair in the biz... (the fact that it looks like its on fire, not the other way)... after my own, of course. *fluffs afro*

Why is yaoi so crazy popular?
Well, in short some guys like to see girl on girl action.

Anime hyper Was this a typo? Because that's the exact opposite of what the answer should be. Or maybe he's just being sarcastic and I don't realize it?

...that's what he said, but, uh, yeah, I think he meant the other way around.

I understood it... or at least that's a good way of explaining why the same would be true for girls, but inverted, of course XD

It's a comparison...it's common knowledge that guys like girl-on-girl action, so he's saying that it makes perfect sense that girls would, in turn, like boy-boy love.

Nice interview. I wonder, with their relationship with Gonzo and Range Murata, if they'll pick up the Last Exile Aerial Log. Its popularity is on a downcurve, so it's probably not all that likely, but having the encyclopedia and world guide in English could settle a few debates.

Maybe it's a little harder to grasp in text, but I understood it as a sort of sarcastic "Well SOME guys like girl on girl action, I don't know if you've heard about this? It's sorta rare, y'know." So, yeah, it's logical that it works the other way too.

What I wonder is if they are doing any tours around Nippon 2007. (I hope to be there.)

http://www.nippon2007.org/​

The vision I have is their taking over a ryokan near the con so that participants can get rooms at a cheaper rate than Western style hotels.

This would be a great opportunity for them. Heck they could even do a "meet us there" package for those flying in from other parts of the world.

Wasn't that an exclusive item for a convention, or am I thinking of something else? At any rate, yeah ...it might not make here like Robot did.

Isaac said in another interview (I'll have to look for source again since he has about 5 interviews about the same thing. Must really love to talk, ha) that they are talking about bringing Murata's re: futurythem if Robot sells well. I understand it's a hard market for an very high quality art book laid out as manga to find a stable base, but here's hoping.

Mr. Lew is great, though. I didn't know he knew Range Murata on a personal level. I lack the flamboyant doo, but we both loved Ebony and Ivory by Suzuhito Yasuda. I really can't wait till Vol. 2 comes out.

Yes. I like Pepsi... I like Pepsi a lot. (I'm also hoping for a WWE and Pepsi deal for doing completely nothing at all...)

Yeah, sorry about that everyone...

It didn't come out to well on paper, er internet... ahh text!

I should have added... "Well SOME guys like girl on girl action, so now girls just wanna have fun..."

(ok I will stop playing my old records now...)
