Based on what I've heard in various radio shows, they usually only know what happens to their characters when they get the scripts, maybe about a week before the recording sessions. But as Marsala said, Hanae should already know whether he's working on A/Z for next season or not, due to contracts and timetables etc.

I know. (I watch and listen to too many seiyuu events and radio to not know this ) Hanae could still be telling the truth though. If he's not needed for episode 1, then he probably wouldn't have received that script.

er...the radios and events are generally scripted, with some leeway for what the seiyuu want to talk about. But any info. they reveal is usually vetted ahead of time.

And given that we're about 7 weeks out from S2, and the fact that Amamiya and Minase only started talking about it on the radio this week, I think they've only recorded one or, at most, two episodes so far. Though that makes the A/Z recording sessions pretty early vis-a-vis the episode broadcast (IIRC, in one of the Macross F commentaries, someone said that 4/5 weeks ahead of broadcast time was normal).

Two videos? What's the other one?

Oh, and the aLieZ PV is just a compilation of scenes from the TV show. It ends with the gunshot and the necklace falling to the ground though. I'm sure it'll show up on the interwebs in due time...
