Following up on our recent posting of a short Masako Nozawa interview from earlier in the year, we have yet another piece of translation work from the never-ending pile of Battle of Gods promotional material. This time around, it is a joint interview between Shōko Nakagawa and original manga author Akira Toriyama!
Originally posted on the official website for the movie, the interview consists of Nakagawa tossing out brief thoughts and questions to Toriyama regarding his work on the film. Toriyama mentions that, despite being so heavily involved with the film and even designing characters, he apparently did not provide enough guidance on the design of the Oracle Fish – Nakagawa’s minor role in the movie – compared to what he originally had in mind:
Incidentally, I didn’t imagine the Oracle Fish as being this size; I pictured it as being bigger than human height. Although, since I didn’t draw a chart for scale, it ended up this size. (laughs)
