インタビュー

インタビュー – intabyūInterviews are press activities carried out to coincide with a release, an event, or an occasion. They are usually published in magazines or online, and the length can range from a few questions to a multi-page full feature. Interviews may involve shoots as well, which could be simple shots of them talking to glamour (or gravure) photos. If it’s a post-event interview, they may feature exclusive photos.

Interviews are usually taken in batches for different press outlets and are transcribed and edited for clarity, readability, and to fit the format. This is more apparent in interviews that come in two versions (print and online) where entire segments could be shortened and/or edited out for space.

Interviews are an excellent source of information because they usually occur during milestones of a seiyuu or an artist’s career. Depending on the interviewer and the interviewee, you can learn a lot pertaining to the topic discussed and just about anything surrounding it. This may include behind-the-scenes anecdotes, candid impressions, or industry insight. Interviewers also tend to be assigned to the same people/group or they work on an interview series so you get instances of them referring to past interviews that further enrich the content. Some interviewees are better at conveying their thoughts in this format so they are more comfortable going in-depth into certain topics. The only downside is that they’re written and suffer the same disadvantages when compared to video content.
