“A mangaka sees dreams from the top of the world.”
“If a mangaka does not recharge with the power of nature, he will break down sooner or later.”
“A mangaka advances in this fiery world towards an oasis that may not even exist.”
“A mangaka only learns to respect god after he fails. But as a child can only gain independence by surpassing the father, so too must the mangaka strive to surpass god.”
-Kazuhiko Shimamoto, a chapter of inspirational journeys.
