Interviews

On this page you can find an overview of all the interviews with a direct link to each individual article, grouped by era.

In April 2017 we created a brand new page that will host notable interview quotes on various domains.

To Do[edit]

There are a lot of (mainly foreign) interviews in our possession that aren't yet uploaded to bocpages because they still require a lot of attention. All help in either transcribing and/or translating to English is appreciated. We also miss a lot of magazine scans.

See below for the details. Contact me if you would like to help us out.

PS: They seem to really like Japanese interviewers. [1] They often go more in-depth in their questions, and BoC follows suit in their lengthier responses. Check the translated Japanese interviews which recently got added to the wiki.
