Kevin's thoughts on having Mara Marller roast Kikuko Inoue in A Letter from Kodansha: "It's not a joke. I can't think of anything more terrifying than being a teenage girl with a celebrity parent who announces to the world that she's 17 years old. Kikuko Inoue is a f--king liar. She's clearly 25 years old at best. I'm calling her out and demanding that she start acting her age immediately."
Sometimes winning the battle can lose you the war... because a story from the heart can fight a hundred battles... and a message from the soul can win a thousand wars... and the passion of a nobody can topple an empire. So write like the wind and ...
There's a scene in Oh Brother where Stephen Geoffrey's Doctor What accidentally changes to Charlie Day's Doctor What for one line of dialogue. Kevin originally made the episode with Charlie Day as a stand in until he could properly photoshop Stephen into the role. When he switched out the actors for the second version, he accidentally missed a photo frame. Instead of fixing the mistake, he left it for comedic purposes.
"Episodes Animated By Nobody Because We're F--king Cheapskates." Kevin didn't know specifically who the original animators were for which characters, or if they would want their names attached to a bootleg work of fan fiction they weren't paid for, when their unknowing contributions were stock animation screen captured off of the first two seasons DVDs rather than a job where they would sit down and make new animation, hence he credited nobody. To see the original Animation Crew Credits, watch the original Ah My Goddess Shows.
Director Kevin Neece cut the first three scenes from The Pilot Movie (aka The Intervention), as he felt his inclusion as the public access narrator drove the viewers away from the entire series under the mistaken impression that he was going to intercut himself into the story every other shot for the entire show. In reality, it was just the first three scenes of that episode, then he disappears. Kevin's fear wasn't that people didn't like the show, it was that the viewers were bailing on the first episode without giving the rest of the series a chance (more so to the point that the first three episodes were really a 1 hr 40 min pilot movie broken into three parts, and they weren't checking back on the next two episodes to the "finish the movie"). As he realized that the story didn't really begin until the conversation in the Bar, and that the first three scenes where just comedy skits that were thematically unconnected to the actual plot, he let them go. The Uncut Version of The Intervention episode is featured on the Archive.org release.
