NDF Exchange: Yasutaka Shimomukai – July 14, 2015


We catch Yasutaka in the middle of his trip to America to ask him a few questions about his life.  Translated by Yuta, Yasu and I discuss the similarities and differences between life in Osaka and California, his future after departing Tactical Art, as well as how we still don’t fully understand the full spectrum of what ‘Kanjo’ really is.  Come along with us on the first Japanese interview on the cast.

    Again, great stuff. You apologized in the beginning, but I think it came out just fine. Sad to hear he is leaving TA, but exciting to see what he is going to be up to. It sounds crazy, but between Joey’s blog/video coverage and your site, I feel like I know you people. Haha. Keep it up. Aloha!

  2. Awesome interview!
