CELEBRITY BLOG by Fuuri Misasagi

(Translated by Crayon)
Thank you 801 Media for contacting me for this special occasion … and ma’an, did 801-chan had tooooons of questions for me.  And I honestly think she is just a nosey girl.  Am I right, or am I right?

[Background]  Hi, I’m Fuuri.  Born and raised, where else, in Japan.  And I’m still living in hometown.  I love this city.  Lots of fun memories, lots of childhood memories… I could never leave this place.  I loved drawing since I was little.  I used to draw lots of things.  And then one day, someone says to me, “you know, you can make a living being a mangaka…”  So I said, “um…okay…” LOL -  I think, I was 13 or 14 then.  And so, here I am.  Ta Da~~  me as a professional mangaka.  Sorry, I wish I had more interesting and inspirational story to tell you, but I don’t.

[Work]  Yesss! I’m always working!  Just working on my BL manga right now!  Just lots and lots of BL! My memorable and unforgettable work is my debut piece.  I always reflect and tell myself – how blessed I am to have made it thus far.

[Outside of work]  I take good care of my birds - cockatiels.  I have like… 10 of them…  they are by babies.  They are so cute and I love them.  On my days off, I spend most of my time with them. And then I go out with my friends.

[Dreams]  I’d love to travel to outer space.  – oh, I also like Sci-Fi movies and things.  And if I could, I wanna meet Edgar Cayce and Peter Frankl.

[re: USA]  I’ve been to Hawaii and west coast once.  I saw lots of pretty birds in Hawaii – here I go with birds again.  I know… it’s an obsession, really.  And west coast was so beautiful.  I felt like I was in a movie or something. When I get a chance, I definitely want to visit again.  When my publisher told me that my book is being published in the US, I screamed, “Yeeehaw!”  <– American Style! How awesome!  May be I should buy my own US copy and study English.  I hope you can all cultural differences aside, and just enjoy my manga -  I’ve Moved Next Door To You   ‘Cuz I want you to feel my LOVE!

    Sensei! I love I’ve Moved Next Door to You! The story makes me laugh and makes me want to hug all the characters so they feel better. I have been looking forward to the release since 801 Media announced it. I hope more of your titles are licensed in the United States and I hope you come to visit us again.
