  1. Watched it but had to go out in a bit more than an hour, so I am not sure how the event was to the end.

    Nevertheless, I was disappointed by the journalists’ questions in the beginning but Miyazaki-sama got more comfortable with the atmosphere and gradually things got better; he even made a few really good jokes.

    Thank you, Miyazaki-sensei and good luck in whatever you decide to do :)
