[Iwao Junko sat one seat away from me. ^_^;]
demo film of the Shin Kaitei Gunkan gameAfter the break, they showed a video of the Shin Kaitei Gunkan game that will come out for the Playstation and Saturn. (I think it was Playstation and Saturn..) The video was only a few minutes long.
Talk showThe emcee talked with the director, Katayama Kazuyoshi, about Shin Kaitei Gunkan and Kaitei Gunkan (the original SFX movie that came out over 30 years ago). They showed some slides of the original design sketches of the Kaitei Gunkan movie. The Kaitei Gunkan LD will come out next year. Then they showed the original preview film of the Kaitei Gunkan movie.
They said that there will be a Shin Kaitei Gunkan radio drama next year (March 1996), and it will be aired on Hayashibara Megumi's Tokyo Boogie Night. It will be a different story from the anime version, and after that the drama CD will come out.
Then they called the guests onto the stage, and they all sat down behind tables, which had white table cloth on it, along with a microphone.
Katayama: With a movie, I can ask you to pay 1800 yen to watch it, but with anime the video costs almost 10000 yen. I can't ask you all to buy it, but if you do, it will make us happy.
Amano: The second episode is currently planned, but the rest is up to how well this one sells. So please buy it if possible.
Seki: Hello, I'm Seki Tomokazu, doing the role of Arisaka Gou. I moved recently, and my rent went up. So please buy this so there will be more Shin Kaitei Gunkan. I need it to pay my rent. It would make me very happy if you reserve this video on the way home. Also please cheer for me in my other roles.
Iwao: Hello, I'm Iwao Junko, doing the role of Annette. I plan on reserving two LDs, one for my family and one for me, so everyone please watch this.
Kobayashi: Hello, I'm Kobayashi Makoto.
Kishima: The story might be very hard to understand with just one episode. If there are more and more episodes, the many mysteries will be solved. There is a book on sale now that describes a little bit more of the story and background.
Yamaki: Everyone else is saying "buy it, buy it", so as the producer I'm very happy. But if the sales is good, we can make more and more episodes. We want to make this an anime that surpasses Giant Robo. Please reserve it today if you can.
Then they moved onto the question corner. Everyone was given a survey form with had space for a question that they can ask the guests. The people who had their questions read were given signed posters.

Q [to Kobayashi Makoto]: The weapons and features of the Ragou were
