■(Regarding the arrest for fraud of a man age 33, named exactly Katsuhiro Otomo) About three or four years ago, someone with the same surname was arrested. What about last name judgment? Criminal or cartoonist?
■I thought that a scam group had deceived me with "I sell Katsuhiro Otomo's autograph". This is not fraud.
■When I told them this information, I laughed out loud and thought, "I wonder if it's a common thing," and it became a simple comment. No crime, no matter the name.
■Animation AKIRA Layouts & Key Frames 2 has arrived. Thick! And it's hot!! ︎ The release is a little ahead, but there is no book like this in the world!
■I've been thinking about a book with this specifications for a long time, but I don't think any publisher would put out a book like this. I think I was able to do it because it was in the complete series. Now it's your turn.
■(Regarding who makes a profit out of this book) No one is making money. I published this book for those who have been waiting for it
