Anime Expo Brings On the Nabeshin

Yeah, I think from now on I'll refer to him as "THE Nabeshin."

Just got word on the first Guest of Honor at this year's Anime Expo, and it's Shinichi Watanabe, aka Nabeshin, aka the director of such titles as Excel Saga and the Wallflower, aka The Best Lupin Cosplayer Ever!  
 
 
Oh man, I don't even know where I'd BEGIN to interview Nabeshin. I might just ask him how he got to be such a cool dude, and if I can be his disciple. Maybe I'll work my hair into an afro... 
 
What would YOU ask him?

That is awesome.  Please interview this guy.  :P

Gia with a fro!  You must ask him:
 
1) Boxers or briefs?
2) Canada Dry or Schweppes?
3) What is the meaning of the universe?

forgetting that the wallflaower ever excisted, he has woked on a lot of great anime, actually, that would make a good question "to your fans, how sorry are you about The Wallflower?"

1) Can you jump out of your clothing!?
