For over a decade I’ve wondered what it’d be like to see director Yoshiyuki Tomino in person. In November of 2019 I was finally able to make this dream a reality. Tomino attended Anime NYC as a Guest of Honor to celebrate the Gundam franchise’s 40th anniversary and to promote the first Reconguista in G film. I made the trip from California to New York for this rare occasion. In this post I’ll briefly reflect on my experience and provide commentary on the Turn A Gundam related question-answers.
