What was the one major thing you learned about creating a show for the fujoshi market?

Not to go too far. So one of the most important things I found in our research was, you have to leave them room for their imagination to swell out and imagine it without depicting it.


I'm so glad they realized this, and executed it flawlessly as far as I'm concerned. Fangirls need room to sail their ships, and the anime was perfect for fueling multiple ships but not declaring much one way or the other.

+1. They definitely did their homework here.

Looks like the interviewer was only allowed to ask about Cutie High Defense Club and not his other works. Apparently it was the same issue with the fans.
