aki the geek is translating another interview with Hiramatsu on twitter. Predictably there are butts. She’s still translating right now!
Q: Skaters’ butts appear to be positioned higher compared to other people.
Hiramatsu: I was like “Really?” when Yamamoto told me about that. But when I actually watched some skaters, I noticed that the upper part of their buttocks is raised pretty high up there. Seriously, you could put things on their butts.
Most of the cast is male, so I thought there’d be viewers who will interpret things in a certain way and get excited over them. But I certainly did not expect so many unexpected developments to happen in the actual series.
“I expected people to think it’s gay, but I didn’t expect it to ACTUALLY BE GAY.”
Also much, much praise for Yamamoto-san.
