It's a real treat to be able to read this interview, cheers.

Dan Hager

thanks, matt.


Amazing. I can't wait for more.

Steve Harrison

This really is amazing stuff, Matt! Well done!

What I like is the totally relaxed nature, the sense of 'peer to peer' honesty, the lack of...hrrr...posing I guess. Nagai can be free to express his joy, Kato can be free to mention the things that influenced him...

Kato...Monkey Punch is a great guy. Met him for a little at Project: A-Kon years back, got some beautiful sketches. More people should meet him.


Thanks Matt - can't wait for the rest... Don't know about Go Nagi not being able to draw the female form well - Honey Kisaragi looks pretty well formed to me.


Yeah, that comment amused me, too. Take it in the Japanese spirit of humbling oneself when discussing one's own work.


Thanks for that Matt. It's nice to see two giants of manga/anime talk about this stuff as if it's another day at the office.

The Constructivist

Hey some comment spam hoping you feel like taking your blog to the course for the U.S. Women's Open. With Ai Miyazato, Shiho Oyama, and Sakura Yokomine in the field, I'm sure you can find a way to give it the classic AltJapan treatment!



Stumbled across this a little too late, huh. Somebody posted this in the lupin iii forums. Is there more?

I'd love to read the rest of the interview


Never did get around to doing the rest. Anyone else want to take a crack at it?
