@rzerox21xx - Whoa, that's an interesting news, to say the least! ohmy.gif Is there any way you can ask the author of this post and find out the name of that magazine the author read this interview on? unsure.gif

ETA: I found it. "Eureka" magazine, Feb. 2010 issue, Hiromu Arakawa interview by Kazuhiro Fujita (manga artist, also from Hokaido...he is from Asahikawa, Hokkaido, while Arakawa-sennsei is from Tokachi, Hokkaido)


QUOTE
藤田 荒川さんは最近はどこにも行かないで家とか仕事場で集中してるって感じですか?
荒川 そうですね。でもうちには二歳の子供がいるんでなかなか自宅ではできないんです。
藤田 それはすごい! お母さんをやりながらあの作品を描いてるんですか。
荒川 シッターさんには来てもらってますけどね。
藤田 それにしてもすごいですよ。でも、それで作品の強さの秘訣がわかった気がする。
    やっぱりお母さんって一番強いもんね。
荒川 ひとり産んで「うちの母ちゃんすげえや」ってわかりましたもん(笑)。
    うちの場合は男の子なので、こいつが十五歳とかになったときに
    私のマンガを読ませて絶対に面白いって言わせてやるって思っていて、
    そうした未来の読者ができたので、戦いがいがあります(笑)。


Mr. Fujita asks Arakawa about her not going out much recently, and asks if she is concentrating on her work at the studio or at home, and she answers that since she has a two years old child at home it's hard to concentrate on her work at home. (Though she says she gets a babysitter to help her. ^^) She says after experiencing the birthing she understood how strong her mother was. (laugh) Then she says it's a boy, and when he gets to be 15 years old she would like him to read her manga (FMA) and wants him to think her manga is totally great fun, and that gives her new meaning to make her manga a great one. smile.gif








--------------------------


<Program Note>

Later, I'm going to merge this to About Hiromu Arakawa thread. And meantime, I'm moving this from Open Chat forum to FMA Manga forum.

Meanwhile, everyone please feel free to add your reply posts here. smile.gif
