It’s finally out!
As I mentioned in a blog post last month, I translated Mari Okada’s biography! The English book, which is published by J-Novel Club, is now out on ebook stores. As I mentioned before, please do support this release if you’re interested in seeing more books written by anime creators get an English translation.
If you’re still undecided about whether to pick up the ebook, there’s an exclusive excerpt on Anime News Network, which covers how Okada got her start in the anime industry.
As part of the promotion for the book, I also did an interview with Okada herself. I was very lucky to get this opportunity! This is the most in-depth interview with Okada that you’ll find in English (barring translations from Japanese magazines), so I hope you find it interesting!
Between the book and the interview, there should be more documentation about Okada than ever. If this gets at least one person to learn something new about Okada’s life and how anime screenwriting works, I’d be happy.
That’s all for now! Until next time!
