~ Um....abt Hiromu Arakawa Sensei... ~

i really want to know whether Arakawa sensei is a male or female...i know his name was a male name (and i believed that he's a male)...but there are some people saying that they saw in the GANGAN magazine said that he is a female...so...i don't really know whether he is a male or a female...?

Yes, Takahashi Rumiko is one of the artists that Arakawa-sensei look up to. "Kinnikuman" affected her as well. But the two manga that she influenced FMA was Guru Guru (forgot the rest of the name >.< It's the anime/manga where the girl is a magician and draws arrays in order to use magic) and another manga which I've never heard of and have no idea what the japanese or english name is (but from the chinese translated name, it looks like it's about a wanderer.)
