A few days ago, Takeshi Konomi tweeted a drabble of sorts featuring both Ryoma and Sakuno! Rough translation of the said tweet below (thanks so much to @that-yellow-flower translating this!)
Ryoma-kun: Hey, Sensei, did you come and get a fortune slip this year?
Konomi: Ah, now that you say it…
Ryoma-kun: For our sake, please aim for four consecutive Excellent Luck!!
Konomi:Fufu Ryoma-kun, do you know a good shrine ♪
Ryoma-kun: Uhh… w,well Ryoma-kun: … but there seems to be a lot of Terrible Luck there

Now that I think about it, I didn’t post about this here yet, but…
Konomi Takeshi, aka Konomi-sensei, aka the creator of Prince of Tennis, aka the guy whose manga I’ve been obsessed with for like half my life
…replied to me on Twitter last weekend ヽ(￣▽￣)ﾉ
There was a big Jump SQ ad in Shinjuku Station, and he posted a pic of himself posing in front of the Tenipuri panels in it, and invited his followers on Twitter to take pics of themselves posing the same way and send them to him. And I happened to be in Tokyo last weekend for the SUNPLUS event, so I went and found the ad and got my picture taken with it (there were like eight other Tenipuri fans all gathered around doing the same thing, it was wonderful) and tweeted at him, and…ヽ(；▽；)ノ
He only replied to 25 people or so before saying he had to go back to work! I was one of the last ones ;; But what’s even better is that in his reply he said “even someone from America…!!” but…I didn’t say I was from America in my tweet to him…which means he clicked through to my profile LMAO I didn’t have enough characters to mention Yamabuki in my tweet (hence the Yamabuki bear pic, lol) but I hope he noticed my extreme love for them anyway XD (He also mentioned Tenimyu, which I didn’t, though that could also be because I have Dream Live in my display name…)
Anyway, what a good guy. Thank you, Konomi-sensei!!!
