Why were they interviewing Anno about Rahxephon? I don't see what relationship there is between him and this anime. Except in the minds of certain rabid fanboys.

Anno and Izubuchi are old friends and this series being Izubuchi's first time to direct(despite being in the industry for nearly 20 years) they probably thought the interview would be cool.

Oh right. Izubuchi is the director's name. The rest of this thread makes sense now. Sorry about that, I just didn't manage to figure that out on my own.

Thanks for the info kamidake90. I guess that means Anno and Izubuchi did indeed work together on Char's Counterattack (as opposed to just have their previously designed mecha appear in it). The Nu Gundam, at the very least, first appeared in that movie.

Many of the current crop of people in the industry are in it because of Tomino. Either due to inspiration from him or direct tutelage(I think he was the first to use Yoko Kanno's music in a series). Of course Tomino himself along with Matsumoto, Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, Kunio Ookwara and generally the rest of the founding members of Sunrise were all students of Osamu Tezuka dating back to the old Mushi productions days(Astro Boy FTW)

Shouji Kawamori put Kanno on the map in Macross Plus (1994) and Vision Of Escaflowne (1996). Kanno worked with Tomino on Brain Powered (1998) and Turn A Gundam (1999).

I'd always thought Izubuchi had influenced the mecha (for lack of a better term) designs in Eva; there's a good deal of resemblance between the Eva-01 and Izubuchi's Kaempfer design from Gundam 0080, particularly around the head. Nice to see that there is actually some proof to back me up on this.

I do believe that although Kanno wasn't the main composer, some of her work was used in Victory Gundam back in 1993(checking the interview with Tomino and Kanno on the Brain Powered dvd's....Yup! She was an understudy to the series composer and composed three songs herself.)

That would be like if Tupac Shakur was still alive and him saying he used Timbaland first because Timbaland was an understudy (ghost producer) of Devante. You can't give Tomino/Tupac credit for a composer/producer using their understudy. You give the credit to the composer/producer since Tomino/Tupac wanted Akira Senju/Devante and not Yoko Kanno/Timbaland.

You almost lost me, but I think I know what you mean.

the translation

I pinged Vir everywhere I could find him online (he seems to be essentially inactive under that name), but I'm doubtful it'll do any good.

Does anyone else have a translation of the interview, or maybe scans of it which could be re-translated?
