Why?

Well, at last, the mystery has been solved. Arakawa-sensei is a 'she'.

I dunno. Maybe because the manga had those emotional bits (Al & Ed angsting over the events after Lab 5, Winry & Hughes talking about how women and men dealt with their feelings &
Spoiler: (Click here to Display)
It just seemed so special if a man wrote and drew all this, you know? biggrin.gif But now it turns out Arakawa's a woman and now it doesn't seem so special anymore...

naruto's mangaka is a man, so the emotional moments in his story are special? and arakawa-sensei's are not?

The moments are not special, but..... "less" special but only because....... I dunno how to say this exactly..... -___-;; It seems if I continue talking I'll only dig a deeper grave or something.

Hmmm, I guess you could say Arakawa's special because she made a shonen-manga. Blah.... *shrugs* I'm just strange like that.

And I've never read Naruto... T__T Only seen two eps of the anime.

female mangakas in shonen-type genre and male mangakas in shojo-type manga genre are rare... the fact itself is already special in my opinion.

According to Yebyosh's translation of her interview with Yahoo, none. FMA is her first series, though she made some one-chapter stories before.

happy.gif I'm actually quite inspired. I always thought that Arakawa was a "she" even though her manga was shonen, although I couldn't figure out why. I guess it's because FMA has so much depth. I like shojo manga, but even though I'm a girl, I've always been most attatched to shonen stories. Of all the shonen manga I've read, FMA has the most plot and character depth, which is probably why it topped my favourites list.

I've been wanting to draw manga for five years now. If I ever actually drew my own story, it would probably have more shonen elements than shojo, which is why I find Arakawa so inspiring. Like Chibi Viki said, female manga-ka who draw in the shonen style are rare, but Arakawa was able to become famous for a shonen series in her first try. That's really amazing.

In the interview, Arakawa mentioned how she inserts humor even into the angstiest moments to make the manga lighter and more entertaining. I really like this element of FMA, and it was probably another reason I assumed Arakawa was female. Either way, I don't think it would matter all that much to fans of FMA because gender does not make an artist better or worse, and that's the way it should be.

I agree with Kase. Somehow the whole sense of manga makes me feel, that author is a man. Yes, Arakawa-sensei is a 'she', it's proved, but I would have never guessed about it.
