A Gundam Snob No Longer

I’m pretty sure that I watched some Gundam Wing and Gundam Seed when I was a kid, but I was never really big on Gundam so they didn’t have that much of an impression on me.  However, since becoming a fan translator of the Japanese radio show Dear Girl ~Stories~ , I often hear one of its hosts, seiyuu Kamiya Hiroshi, talk about […]
