Let's preface this article by stating that we know this video was recorded a year ago. In the transitioning between iMovie and Final Cut Pro, I thought I had lost this footage. But here we are, a year later and still releasing it because Mel Kishida is probably the most down-to-earth Japanese celebrity you could ever meet.
Kishida is a famous Japanese illustrator. His work has been used in light novels, anime and video games. He was in Melbourne, Victoria for Animaga in 2017 to promote his game Blue Reflection and during the interview, you might even hear him mention something about more video games coming in the future!
Blue Reflection was released late 2017 and according to Wikipedia:
"Blue Reflection is set in the Hoshinomiya Girls High School in modern-day Japan, in the middle of summer. The player takes the role of Hinako Shirai, a ballet dancer who injured her knee one year prior to the beginning of the game, and has been unable to dance since then. After meeting with sisters Yuzuki and Lime Shijou, she is given the power to fight as a magical girl referred to as a "Reflector", allowing her to move freely."
We hope you enjoy watching the interview and playing the game.
