A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE

About The Episode
SciFi JAPAN TV is back, celebrating its first anniversary this month with episode thirteen! We’ve given the show a bit of a revamp too! As always, we want to keep pushing to make it bigger and better.
In this episode – which we actually shot way back in March (note the cheery blossoms) – our associate producer Hiro Sono met up with THE BIG O and KING OF THORN director Kazuyoshi Katayama in Ginza to talk about monsters, anime and all things otaku. This episode was great fun to shoot, and the energy of these two professional fanboys makes this episode a joy to watch.
We have another great episode coming up next month too, featuring Heisei Ultraman producer Yoshihiko Marutani and director Takeshi Yagi!
Oh – and Katayama expects your homework on Wednesday.
About SCIFI JAPAN TV
A regular video program focusing exclusively on Japanese scifi and monsters is something we’ve always wanted to see, but nothing like it has ever been available, neither in Japan nor overseas. So we decided to make it ourselves!
SciFi JAPAN TV is shot on location in Japan exclusively for SciFi Japan by the ACTV Japan production team. The show delves into the world of Japanese monsters and scifi, featuring the latest and hottest tokusatsu events in Japan, as well as simple yet in-depth discussions with the people who bring all of our favorite films and shows to life!
