[Interview] Sayo Yamamoto, director and storyboard artist

Sayo Yamamoto became a household name in anime fandom in 2017 after Yuri!!! on ICE became an international phenomenon. However, even before that, she had an impressive career with series such as Michiko and Hatchin and The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, earning her a cult following for their stories about complicated, sexy women and feminist themes. AniFem staffer Caitlin sat down with her at AnimeFest 2017 to talk about Yuri on Ice, her themes, and her career.
