Otomo's note from Anthology's postface

No matter what I'm writing, I'm always pursued by deadlines, and the closer the deadline, the harder I find it to persuade myself that the drawings are up to scratch. Then, as a reaction, the more I wish I could draw properly... When I feel like that, writing a lengthy piece is an impossibility, so I figure that at any rate I might as well draw something short but in which the pictures are sharp and clear. However, since these stories ran as a serial in a monthly magazine, I found myself once more hounded by deadlines, felt increasingly unable to drawn and came more and more to dislike what I was drawing... These are all Western parodies, but I would like to do some Japanese ones someday.
