Translated Red Bull interview with Hosoyamada Mizuki

As part of the run up to Red Bull 5G 2016, where Puyo Puyo Tetris is once again being featured as an e-sport, the folks at Red Bull Japan published a series of three interviews with the Puyo series producer, Hosoyamada Mizuki. All three interviews are pretty interesting (as long as you can read Japanese), but we specifically focused on the second interview because it talks about the demand for an English version of Puyo. Thanks to Momochi for providing the translation with some editing for clarity. The original interview can be found here.

Mr. Hosoyamada, the nurturing parent [that is, opposed to "the inventor"] of the known-to-all "masterpiece" talks about the unknown story of "Puyo Puyo".
