Articles and Interviews

This section includes articles and interviews related to Unico and those that have worked on the series. Since many of these were in Japanese, we’ve taken the time to translate and compile everything in one place. Most of these are from out of print material that we wanted to share for informational purposes. Everything is in alphabetical and chronological order.

※ Please note: As we are not fluent in Japanese, there may be some translation errors.
