”I don’t consider myself a special person doing something that only I can do, though. I think of myself more as pretty much just an ordinary person.”

”Yes, I like watching the news, I like documentaries. The main things I can’t bring myself to watch are dramas and variety shows.”

”Berserk’s characters have their positives and negatives, along with their own personal motivations, and I depict them as putting those above all else.”

”I don’t know what relationships between boys these days are like, but back in the eighties, boys were really obsessed with stuff like how good their friends were at things, how highly they “ranked” in comparison to their friends, etc.”

”I figure my intuition has served me well. Something tells me keeping it from getting too dark or too heavy is one of the key things that separate popular stories from unpopular ones.”

”Shojo manga is all about expressing every feeling powerfully, and in that sense, it’s not as contrived as manga for men.”

”The thing is, when you’re just an ordinary manga fan not aiming to become an artist yourself, you get to choose whatever manga you like and read within your own safety zone.”

”I had always been under the impression that a manga artist dreams up things that don’t exist in reality.”
