  • Mood: Joy
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 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. ^^;


* I rearranged the order of articles. *

The image of DVD/BD vol.7 : January 26th

The image of Vol.7 was out in the official site.
Scroll down until the place which is written the number "7".…

In passing, the bottommost image of this page is the picture of official event brochure in November 1st, 2009, and DVD of this event will be released in spring.
Unfortunately, the actual image of DVD seems not to be still in the official site.

I'm a member.

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:
