Yesterday, I bought a certain monthly magazine offering the literary review, column, interview and the rest.
This issue features a certain manga-ka, and there is a conversation of the manga-ka and Arakawa-san.
That's why I bought it. :XD:

In that conversation, I was surprised.
Arakawa-san was a mother, and she has a son who is two years old.
She says she wants to make her son say "Mom's manga is interesting" when he will grow up and get to read my works, then she is drawing with thinking it.
I'm sure he must say it. :D

I remember she was admitted into the hospital a few year ago...it was just about time when she drew "Ed's return".
I seem this timing fits her son's age...just maybe her hospital stay was due to her childbirth?!
But she never missed work, and FMA continued without a break...she drew the manga in a hospital as soon as she gave birth?!
If so, this is exactly Arakawa-san, she is tough. :XD:

And I'm so interested in her husband...what kind of person does Arakawa-san love?
After all he is muscular...? :XD:
Anyway, congratulations on your newborn baby! :D ...he is already two years old though. ^^;

Wow, I had been a huge FMA-fan for years and yet I didn't know about Arakawa being a mom since two years back until now and reading about how tough she really is, makes me so proud as a woman! Go Arakawa! <3

Yeah, maybe Arakawa-san is a type of person who can stock a few chapter ahead of time, but I admire her because she didn't stop serialization. :aww:

wow, I didn't know she was a mother! Well, that's todays lesson. This just shows how awesome Arakawa is! Tons of manga's have been delayed because of the manga-ka have some kinda a problems or stuff like that, but she gave birth while she continued.. I'm taking of my hat for her!
Haha, her husband.. now I'm curious too.. Armstrong-type maybe? XD

Yeah, I guess probably she drew a few chapters ahead of schedule due to her child-bearing leave.
I hope she never works herself too hard, but the passion for her task deserves respect. :clap:

I understand better now, thank for the info as always! I fist thought that she had a baby these days, instead he already is two years old.

Anyway, it's really touching what she says about wishing that her son will think that her manga is interesting. So sweet of her. <3

Makes me wonder if she will give at least some of her character some happy ending... ;) But I guess she's a tough lady, after all, all the females she draws are tough woman! (well...expect trisha...she was different) But everyone else was! Izumu, Olivia, Winry, Riza, Maria....I could go on...XD

:iconamber1003:
amber1003 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, she always says "I want to give the characters some sort of salvation" and "I like women who have a job and work hard" or something.
And surely she should have thought happy ending from the start. :D

The manga will end until June this year at least because Brotherhood will end in June.
As I recall the manga and Brotherhood should be coordinated with the timing of end.

Really? That's awesome news :) I was worry there that the anime would end before the manga did, I dont want Bones to ruin it >_>

:iconamber1003:
amber1003 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, the broadcast schedule which is airing Brotherhood is normally one year (4 seasons), but Brotherhood has irregular schedule, 5.
It's said the season is increased due to coordination of the manga's end. :D

She might judge it's all right because it isn't physical work but desk work, and the symptoms with pregnancy like a morning sickness might not be severe so much for her.

Well, maybe she is a person who doesn't talk about her family (her privacy) in detail. ^^;
But her manga essay of childhood is out, the title is "Hyakushou Kizoku" (It means "clodhopper aristocracy" in English) though, she seems to have been so hard because of the help of her parents.

Maybe she has a few manga chapters drawn ahead of time, just in case.

Ex. If you were reading chapter 1, maybe she was already drawing chapter 3?

Maybe she was prepared? Or maybe just very dedicated!

Yeah, I think she is drawing a few chapters ahead of time than actual appearance of Gangan, so I wrote not "we read Ed's return" but "she drew Ed's return".
