Japan-A-Radio was granted an exclusive one on one interview with Japanese Rock band ROOKiEZ IS PUNK'D at Sakuracon this past weekend before their concert took place. ROOKiEZ IS PUNK'D features SHINNOSUKE on guitar and vocals, U on drums and RYOTA on Bass. After starting off with their thoughts on Seattle, where they visited Pike Place Market and the Gumwall, we dove into the meat of the interview, starting with their expectations of an American audience for their concert.
Japan-A-Radio was part of a group interview with the creative team behind The Promised Neverland, including Mamoru Kanbe (Director), Sumire Morohoshi (Voice Actress, Emma), Shinobu Ono (Cloverworks Producer), & Kenta Suzuki (Aniplex Producer), during Sakura-Con 2019 this past weekend.
OKAMOTO's are Sho (Vocals), Kouki (Guitar), Hama (Bass), and Reiji (Drums). Sho answered the majority of the questions, half of them in English as well. The other band members often piped in as well, starting off with a further explanation of the band's name.
