If you guys get the chance, I'd be interested in hearing about whether he was involved in Song of Saya getting made into an American comic and what he thinks about it. (It's a bad comic, but I can't imagine what was going on at Nitroplus when that was decided!)

I have no particular urge to find out the exact survey results myself, beyond whatever ANN chooses to disclose, but I do hope there will be future opportunities to interview some of the other individuals who might have done well on the interest poll yet ultimately didn't rank nearly as high as Mr. Urobuchi.

Other than that...yes, it would be nice if the next interview with the man tried to cover a slightly wider range of subjects this time around. You know, for the sake of variety. Of course, I realize that sometimes this also depends on factors that aren't all under the interviewer's control (time, handlers, etc.) and obviously the "hot" stuff needs to be brought up.

As long as Urobuchi keeps writing interesting stuff, we'll keep on having new questions for him. Razz So much ground has already been covered in regards to the original Madoka series, but less so comparatively in regard to the Rebellion film, so it'd be great to see him asked questions about that latest iteration. And of course some questions about anymore near-future work would be great (might have he had some involvement in ufotable's new Fate/Stay Night release, for example? It seems that he did do *something* in regards to the game if the VN's credits are to be believed...).

Ooh, I hope Ikuhara has made it near the top of the most-requested list. He was actually pretty prevalent on the American con scene in the years following Utena's release, right? I'd be great to get a more recent interview with him post-Penguindrum and pre-Penguinbear.

I'm happy to read this.

I'd also be very interested to know if he will be involved in the new Fate anime in any way whatsoever. As the new one seems to be closely connected to Fate/Zero, I wonder if he will be (or was) asked to contribute in any way. Also, will he be involved in the sequels to his other recent shows, and if so, to what extent?

I envy the person who gets to sit down and talk to the man, I'd have tons of questions and topics I'd want to talk to him about...

Any way to see the results of the survey? I'm curious about what they were.

Nothing against Mr. Urobochi, but if he's already been interviewed twice, is there no way he can be skipped this time around for the next most popular person on the list of results?

Well it's not like ANN can only interview one person this year. They can interview Urobochi and the second-place-getter and the third-place-getter, and so on and so forth.

I say the more interviews the merrier.

I'd personally be incredibly interested in an interview with fellow writer Kazuma Kamachi (author of Toaru Majustsu no Index and Heavy Object), mainly because he hasn't ever done an interview with an English-speaking news source before. Apparently he's also fairly elusive, so he doesn't do many interviews to begin with. I didn't see him on the list though, and it would have to be one of those interviews with questions asked by fans as well.

If he wasn't on the list then you should have added him.

What about Kinoko Nasu then and ask him about Tsukihime Remake, Fate/Stay Night Remake, and other new project of type-moon or UFO-Table x Type-moon project in the future.

Apparently he was asked about this in some con soon after ufotable announced a new project and he answered that he is not involved. No safe source for that though. I also don't see a point since Nasu himself is supervising/consulting (like he did with Fate/Zero novel btw).

As far as I know Urobuchi's wasn't officially involved with the vn. If he's in the credits, it probably means that he gave Nasu some advice (since they're friends) and there's no reason why he can't do that again.

I'm pretty sure he can't/doesn't want to give more information about future projects than is already given. Look for Typemoon Ace vol. 9. I'd like an interview with him though.

I would like him to talk about Psycho Pass. The site has had interviews about the show but with the directors and producer.
