It is often said that women are better to talk about emotions, to write dialogues that hit the nail on the head, and men know how to create stories with twists and turns.

It doesn’t matter if they’re a man or a woman.

I’ll never get tired of Naoko’s enthusiasm over more women being involved in the industry and in her stuff in general. She manages to work it into every single interview she does, it’s kind of impressive.
