Photo taken with Kenji Uchida - the chairman of Sunrise and one of the planners who worked on Code Geass. We were supposed to meet up first at Dubai Comicon but didn't get round to it so we got together just after we both came back to Japan. He came to our office (my house at the time) to see how we were in the midst of preparing
to launch a product called Smart Doll.
This year I spoke to Uchida-san about working with Sunrise on a Smart Doll collaboration - and the rest is history. Apart from Cowboy Bebop and Code Geass, we are also working on a few other another Sunrise titles.
