Request-ish sort of thing. ^^;  
Hi there, all. ^_^ Sorry if this is a tad off-topic, but it'd probably be best to ask here.

Does anyone have a picture of Arakawa-sensei? Not the cow she draws, but an actual picture of her? I've been searching for one all day, but I still don't have any luck in finding one. So, do any of you have one to share?

Please and thank-you. :D

It seems so difficult to find one simple picture. xD

Ah, I suppose it's better than nothing anyhow. ^^ And for some reason, she sort of reminds me of my old french teacher there. o_O

yeah... it is really difficult to find pics of her... I don't know why she doesn't want to be seen xD

Whut's wrong with the picture as her as a cow? D:

There's nothing wrong with it and the cow is so cute, but I'm just curious as to what she really looks like. :P

I think most manga-kas don't really want to be seen. You hardly ever see pictures of them. I think the only one I actually found was one of Tite Kubo in some Bleach guidebook. That was weird.

Why is it weird? It's a good thing that he shows himself, even the anime related people talk about him lots due to his influence on the anime(hence why he was seen with Morita, Ichigo's VA).

Speaking of which, Sorachi who does Gintama is openly "publicity shy". He draws omake of himself as this ape looking character and he... says things that may get him fired so I think it's pretty reasonable that he doesn't want to show his face XD

I just thought it was odd at the time 'cause you usually don't see manga-ka~. I'm not saying it's a bad thing. :3 I was actually kind of excited to see what he looked like.

Heheh well before that pic, the last pic I've seen him in he had short, orange, hair XD and was thinner.

I've never seen an actual picture of her either. o.o Huh. [crack] But I've got a theory as to why she doesn't want to be seen...it's because Arakawa IS cow! There might be some controversy if people figured out there was a super-intelligent cow out there drawing manga....and getting paid for it. [/crack]

Some mangakas like to be seen...and some don't :D

For example, I believe there is one, and only one, picture of CLAMP. And it's recent...
But in other hand, Rumiko Takahashi...it's easy to find pictures of her (although her pictures look scary for me xD)

Maybe Arakawa-sensei doesn't want to be seen...because she looks like a cow xD

Hah to the CLAMP thing. I have like, one of each member and then a group picture too. I don't know where the rumor started that there is just ONE picture of them *LAUGHS*

Er *coughs* No, I am not a crazy stalker. Not at all. I swear.

There are quite a few pictures of Gosho Aoyama too (Detective Conan mangaka)...
Raven Scarlettraven_scarlett on April 16th, 2006 03:07 am (UTC)
There's a pic or two of CLAMP on wikipedia... not sure if it's THEM or not though...
Kasumi Lovegoodkasumicc on April 15th, 2006 05:40 am (UTC)
That rumour is everywhere :D I swear each time I seek, I find the same picture...
I had found before, a picture of each of them. A REALLY old picture xD
