I’m a huge anime and manga fan.
Ryan Potter

I work at a high school, and we have an anime and manga club.
I do enjoy manga but would not consider myself a ‘super-fan,’ only really connecting with certain works such as ‘Lone Wolf and Cub,’ or ‘Tekkon Kinkreet,’ the more breakthrough works, and ‘Akira,’ to me, is the daddy of them all.

Before and after my debut, I’ve helped out other manga artists from time to time, but I have no experience of being exclusively an assistant. Nor have I done individual or self-published manga.

I love print fiction, but sometimes when I’m reading a good graphic novel or manga, I find myself envying those who work in an illustrated format.
