    1) How does it feel to be apart of a huge franchise in Yu-Gi-Oh! that is still going strong today since you first joined the franchise in Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL?

    2) Being a comedian, was it easy for you to portray Vetrix as his personality is childlike, with his silly outbursts and view of his opponents?

    3) Quattro was my favourite member of the Achlight Family, I enjoyed his character development and Gimmick Puppet Deck. One of my favourite duels in Zexal was Quattro vs Shark during the World Duel Carnival. I was wondering as Quattro was full of emotion and very intense during that particular duel, how did you prepare to deliver such a grand performance? After all this is it the first time we see Quattro vulnerable as he admits he misses his father and dislikes what he has become, Vetrix.

    4) (If there is time) Did you rewatch any of the episodes featuring Quattro is preparation for reprising the role in Duel Links? Or did you remember Quattro’s voice and tone naturally off the top when reading the Duel Links script?
