Sword Art Online! It is my favorite anime!
Well, you're here to promote Tokyo Senhi. What can you tell us about it?
It's a fighting girls anime and I made this anime with three main characters. I am also doing the voice acting for the three characters and I am singing the theme song.
What are some of the challenges doing so many different things at once? Being a character designer, voice actress, singer, etc.
It's actually my dream to be able to do everyhing. I want to be able to do all of it. I want to make anime, do voice acting, sing; everything.
You've been in the US before. What are some of your favorite places?
I love New York very much. I went to New York before and I want to go to New York Comic Con very much! I plan to go to Comic Con next year with this anime!

What were some of your inspirations behind the character designs?
I really like Absolute Duo and Sword Art Online. The character designs from there are really cute. So are my characters.

I have a website where you can find out more about the anime, listen to my music and hear my voice acting. It's on PC only though.
