Whew, hadn't checked chronocompendium@gmail.com in a long time. Glad this is going off the ground. I'll definitely make time to update for translations even if I can't keep the site updated for the time being (though nothing is "lost"; I'm still crawling/archiving remixes and fan art so an eventual mega-update WILL have everything that transpired).

What a fantastically readable translation and enjoyable interview! Thanks so much for your work just_kitten, and to Kodo for bringing this to the community.

There have been huge debates over how good a follow-up Cross is to Trigger, but the more these interviews get exposed, the more I appreciate how much the whole team was aware of fans' expectations. That's got to be a huge burden for an artist to struggle with, so their risk-taking-ness becomes that much more respectable in my mind.

Loved reading the interview. Through the years, I've realized just how much thought and effort has been put in the creation of Cross. It really makes you respect the people involved in making such a (wonderful) game. :)
