Virtual Crunchyroll Expo 2020 - Q&A with Tim Lyu

The following is an email Q&A between Crunchyroll host Tim Lyu and Matthew & Ryan of the California Conventions Blog.


Given all the time and research into developing your timeline and/or history of a given series, what were the hardest challenges and aspects of creating and producing an episode?

The hardest challenge for me is definitely making sure all the information is correct… I still mess up sometimes though… So I’m sorry to all the Crunchyroll YouTube audience… ALSO a big challenge for me is the pronunciation of names… I’m really not the best in that aspect… So sorry again...

From throwing prolific anime bars with ThaGodSquad to transitioning to a career at Crunchyroll, what led you to pursue this new line or profession?

LMAO THANK YOU FOR MENTIONING #THAGODSQUAD… This is kind of a boring answer cause I was just looking for a new job and my good friend let me know that there was an opening for a Crunchyroll host position, so I applied and then once I got the job I moved from LA to Oakland to start my Crunchy profession.

If you could collaborate with any Japanese artist and/or producer for an anime-based rap song and/or album, who would you want to throw down with?

Ooooh… I would love to work with ShinichirĊ Watanabe… His work on Samurai Champloo was one of the biggest inspirations for me when me and my friend created #THAGODSQUAD. So… Watanabe-sensei if you’re reading this somehow… Please… hit me up...
