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!
