Quotes: Creator Breakdown
"Dark is a valid direction to take something, but I think you have to be in a particular place, mentally, to stay there for a while."

"That's Paul. Apparently he was under strain at that period."

"Gen Urobuchi wants to write stories that can warm people's hearts.
Those who know about my creative history will probably furrow their brows and think this is a sick joke. Honestly, I have trouble believing it myself. For when I start typing out words on the keyboard, the stories my brain comes up with are always full of madness and despair.
The truth is, I haven't always been this way. I have often written pieces that didn't have a perfect ending, but by the last chapter the protagonist would still possess a belief that "Although there will be many hardships to come, I still have to hold on".
But ever since I don't know when, I can no longer write works like this...At some point, Gen Urobuchi lost that power. He still hasn't recovered. The 'tragedy syndrome' is still continuing within me. Is this a terminal disease? Should I give up on the pure "warrior of love" that I have longed for? Or mount a pallid battle steed and reincarnate into a bearer of the plague... could it be that I can only create pieces that give men courage and hope in my next life? (When I wrote this, I accidentally wrote 'courage' as 'lingering ghosts'. I guess that's what I get for using IME — Ah, I just wrote "IME" as 'hatred'... is there no way out of this for me?)
Gen Urobuchi, Afterword to Volume 1 of Fate/Zero with a lot of foreshadowing about his next work

"At that time, the managers suggested that we have a psychotherapist come in. A man that meets with pro ball teams, you know — big-ego, big-dollar guys that can't get along, but have to make some kind of entity flow, so everybody else and everybody can make the money. And, uh, I actually said, 'I think that this is really fucking lame — weak — that we cannot get together. Us! Look: the biggest heavy band of all time! The things we've been through and decisions we've made... about squillions of dollars and squillions of people... and this? We can't get over this?"
James Hetfield, Some Kind of Monster

"Halfway though production, [Yasumi] Matsuno resigned from Square Enix, citing health reasons. That the actual reason was a nervous collapse is practically common knowledge, though you'll never heard Square Enix say so. (Matsuno's not taking a paid vacation to recuperate and choosing to get the hell away from Square Enix instead speaks volumes.) Working on Final Fantasy XII actually caused its director and executive producer to cave in on himself."
