1) Do you admire any particular artist or person? 2) How old are you? I know, I know, "One who never reveals their age never ages," but I'd like to know how old you were when you first wrote and published "In the End" with Heath as Pink Psycho. 3) What happened to Heath? 4) When did you first start working to be a mangaka? 5) Do you celebrate Christmas? 6) What would you have been if not a mangaka? I remember you said somewhere that you can't imagine not being a mangaka, but I'd really like to know..... :> 7) What do you get inspiration from? How do you come up with plotlines? 8) I once wrote this really great poem about a chicken blowing up. Am I on the right track to being a mangaka? 9) Do irrelevant questions and comments amuse you, or annoy you? 10) In a few years, I plan on moving to Japan. If I went around all of Tokyo with a big sign that read "nheira" and asking random people if they knew you, would I eventually get to meet you in person?
I read a short interview with the mangaka Tatsumi Yoshihiro, and he said the following with respect to his early works that were made available in English recently (The Push Man is a collection of drama one-shots): "Please do not interpret these stories as representative of the author's personality."
So what I'm wondering is whether this is the opposite in your case, or also true for you. I hope that question makes sense; or maybe it's too personal to answer, I don't know.
