Another reason we know Arakawa is a female is she draws herself as a cow. There is no such thing as a male cow. tongue.gif


haha, never thought about that XD he could have been a travesti though... ph34r.gif XDDDDD

QUOTE
I wonder what she really looks like since there doesn't seem to be an actual pictures of her on the web. I guess she is shy about the way she looks.


Yeah, I'm curious too. Does anyone have any photo of her?

QUOTE
I think that this is a part of it. If people see a woman's name associated with a Shonen manga they might not think it as good. However one of the most popular shonen mangaka (at least in terms of sales) is Rumiko Takahashi and she is a woman. But Rumiko Takahashi is so well known as this point that obviously has to be taken into account.


I've heared that name somewhere... which mangas has she drawn?

QUOTE
It could also be that Arakawa was not hiding her identity as a woman but it was just falsely assumed that she was male because she was writing a Shonen manga.


Yeah, but then... why did they say she was Hiroshi? I suppose she needs to give a name, right? Unless she wants to be anonymus... It could have been some misunderstanding when reading the kanjis too, now that I think about it.

QUOTE
Isn't her work widely regarded as being enjoyed significantly more by females than males?


I don't see how can that affect into someone being a "genius" on something.

QUOTE
Oh my I never noticed that. So is she trying to draw herself as a cow or a bull? And since Arakawa grew up on a dairy farm she should know the difference.


Actually, cows do have horns, but little ones (at least Spanish cows XD)

O.o good question. I think she's young... she once said "I've always wanted to be able to live from the manga" and her humour and all...
I would say about... 25-30 years old ^^ XDD
And I think this is her first manga.

She's 32. Born 05/08/1973
And no, it's not her first manga. She had three others beforehand.

1999 STRAY DOG
2000 Totsugeki Tonari no Enikkusu
2000 Shanghai Yōmakikai

...thank god for wikipedia. happy.gif


And the cow avatar comes from the fact that she was raised on a dairy farm.

Yeah, I figured she'd be in her 20's since she's a new manga artist (Toriyama-sensei was like 23 when he started Dr. Slump tongue.gif), but I wish I knew her exact age! >_<

That was a one-shot story. Fullmetal is her first series.

EDIT-Thank you, What, no bacon?

One thing, I have no idea why people can get really easily confused by Arakawa sensei's gender witht the art style. When I first read the manga, I had ASUMED that FMA was definately drawn by a woman. Lots of shonen mangas are drawn by women too, and lots of shojo where men draw. FMA has that characteristics that can't be drawn by a man. Very cute, slight details and those chibis with the humor, I kinda find it impossible for a man to think of that way and draw it that way. (Men particuarly DON'T draw that kind of stuff, they're more good at drawing action) FMA art style is more of a woman than man, I just feel it that way. Espacially pictures of Al blushing or doing cute stuff, and all those cute expressions and stuff. (To tell you the truth, a person who use to be a manga drawer told me this also.) Just because FMA is shonen, it doesn't mean that the drawer needs to be a man. As for the name, I didn't know if Hiromu was a man or woman name.

p.s.(If you are thinking that I'm getting mad about woman not getting enough attention, three out of my four fav manga drawers are men.)

Oh, now that you mention it, it is! I just assumed it was in Japanese, and therefore, didn't try to read any of it (since my Japanese is still quite poor).
