For everyone that missed it I tried to type it up as the interview went. However this is not exact, or word for word. So I apologize for any mix ups.
And at times because I was typing, I missed who was speaking...But this is at least something until someone (hopefully) uploads the interview =3
It's really cute, I enjoyed it.
Again sorry for mistakes, but I just wanted to at least type something up for everyone. Enjoy~!
Exclusive Tainted Reality Interview Exclusive Interview with Phantasmagoria on Tainted Reality on June 24, 2010. Broken into two parts during the radio cast thing.
Interview done, while tainted reality was on Hiatus. It was prerecorded so there is a lot of past information in here.
Thanks to matt and kendra (Matt asked the questions in English, Kendra translated).
