Now, Anime News Network, the New York Anime Festival, Sunrise, and Bandai Entertainment are giving his followers across the globe the change to ask Tomino-san their deepest questions.

Yoshiyuki Tomino is attending the New York Anime Festival, Sept. 25-27 in New York City, and as part of his appearance at NYAF, he'll be doing a Q&A Panel with Anime News Network. Taking place Sept. 26, this panel will be a chance for fans in the room to ask Tomino-san questions, and - more than that - it will be an opportunity for fans anywhere on the planet to ask something to the Director of Mobile Suit Gundam.. That's right, you get to be the interviewer!

From August 26 to September 6, you can submit your questions to Tomino-san right here at Then, at NYAF, in front of a live audience, ANN will ask as many of your questions as we can.

We'll be taking question submissions in the forum, here.
