Guest: Ryuukishi07 (XXXHOLiC Drama CD co-writer)
– Nekoi is absent at the beginning of the show (again?). They said she’s busy working.
– Ryuukishi07 has such a cool voice! XD He sounds so young, well he’s 34, so he is young. He has such a gasped, fainted laughter though! xD I’m sure he can be quite scary if he wants to, he’s the creator of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni after all.
– Nekoi joins in XD Everyone greets her, “Otsukaresama!”
– For music, he likes movie soundtracks? Action movies specially. He mentions Independence Day.
– Lots of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni talk (which I couldn’t understand a thing XD).
– Talk about the XXXHOLiC Drama CD. I’m reaaaally not entirely sure about this, but I think Ohkawa explains how the idea to write a Drama CD with Ryuukishi07 came to happen (it was in CLAMP’s studio when they invited him to have dinner? Not sure AT ALL! xD).
– One of the e-mails that was sent by the listeners asked him the meaning of the “07” in his pen name. Turns out that CLAMP, too, were curious about it xD Quoting Wikipedia:
His pen name originated from Reina of Final Fantasy V — “07” in Japanese can be pronounced as “reinana”, and “Ryukishi” means “dragon knight”, referring to Reina’s wyvern.
Honestly, CLAMP, just read Wikipedia xD
– When he finishes explaining the origin of his pen name, Ohkawa mentions something about Mokona dropping “Apapa” from her name. clstmk-san, you think you can translate this one for me? ^^”
– Near the final 5 minutes I’m quite sure I heard Ohkawa joking about something with X and RG Veda… something about killing characters, hummm.
I really liked this episode. I never thought Ryuukishi07 would be a guest in this show, I wish they would bring more “staffers” (like anime directors and producers, editors etc) and less seiyuus.
