Big Wow '15: Toshio Maeda Tentacle Talk Panel

Artist Toshio Maeda had his first panel ever at Big Wow 2015. Appropriately titled Tentacle Talk, Maeda-san talked about the experiences in his life that molded him into the Tentacle Master renowned across the world. His works include Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend, La Blue Girl, Demon Beast Invasion, and Adventure Kid, among others. His first convention in the U.S. was Big Wow 2012, but did not hold a panel until now. I recorded the panel for your viewing pleasure, but be warned; there is strong and inappropriate language and is only for mature audiences. It's also hilarious. Well, Maeda-san didn't think some of the tings were funny when they happened to him, but his stories are a good laugh for all of us. Enjoy parts 1 and 2 below.
