■ The first three-way talk is realized!

To commemorate the launch of the Blu-ray BOX, a three-way talk was realized for the first time by Hiroyuki Morioka, the original author, Yasushi Nagaoka, who directed the animation, and Koichiro Yonemura, the comic creator. It is a content of novels, animations, comics, and drooling fans who talk about "star world" from each viewpoint.

The following is a partial excerpt from the original text.

Morioka: As a novelist, manga and anime are the same, but if you have a picture, you can easily tell at a glance, "This is the world!" I think it is strong to be able to see it. It is quite difficult to write it in writing. It is hard to understand even if you write it very much, and if you write such a thing, the story will not progress.
The point I manga and anime I thought envy Do, That's right, the picture is all set to do and I think I do not draw as far as can be seen at a glance (laughs)
if novel, separately or say that I may not write the You can't draw until you set the parts that don't even come up with.

Yonemura: It's not just the detailed explanations and designs that show the spread of the world view, but what is this world like! There is an expression that impresses in the novel, and there is a consciousness that gives priority to drawing the scene accurately.

Nagaoka: The hurdles are not so high now that photography technology has developed, but 20 years ago, everything was hand-painted, so even for people and battleships, the mob scene stands as a terrible wall. When you place an order, you will be asked, "I draw, but what kind of clothes are you wearing?"
So what are the clothes of everyone in the spaceport? You have to make a setting called. What kind of race is there before dressing? And. I would like to have 30 passers-by in one frame in the first place, but how much effort would you put into that background cut? It is a world where it is necessary to judge that.

Yonemura: That's right. For me, this time, 7 volumes of comics are the anti-empire class bulle front, um, min, marka, daswani, building, funeral shop ... 5 people? Wonder. These five people come out somewhere on the screen and draw it because it's bad to just raise the rafil and gin in the continuing conversation.

Nagaoka: I understand. If you don't pay attention to the outside of the frame, it will be a "narrow picture". I think that there is a big difference in the impressions that customers receive depending on how much consciousness they decide on the “picture” in the invisible places.
