Forgot to mention that I’ll be at Oulu Comics Festival in start of next month and after that I’ll be traveling to Japan for three weeks and will be tabling at Design Festa in Tokyo Big Sight on 27th and 28th of November! ⌒ㅅ⌒/
Fujimaki-sensei Q&A thing from Jump Festa: full version!
Q. I’m really looking forward to the movie next March. During middle school, what movie did Kuroko and Momoi go see on a date? I’d love it if you could tell me what happened after that, too. A. It was the kind of movie where the dog waits forever for his dead owner. After they watched it, Momoi cried so much it wasn’t really a date anymore.
Q. What nicknames did Kagetora-san give to everyone on Vorpal Swords? If he had them for Momoi and the players on the bench, please say what they were, too. A. Kise –> Flashy Guy Midorima –> 7:3 Part Aomine –> Tanning Salon Murasakibara –> Long Hair Akashi –> Rich Boy [”Obotchan”] Momoi –> Satsuki-chan Wakamatsu –> Yankii Takao –> Middle Part
[T/N: the “part” in Midorima and Takao’s names is in the sense of a hair part. A 7:3 part is considered a nerdy hairstyle.]
Q. I have a question for Midorima-kun. Up until now, what was your biggest and smallest lucky item? If possible, I’d also like to know the most expensive. A. Biggest & most expensive –> copy machine (forcefully borrowed from school) Smallest –> single grain of rice (when left on the bench, it blew away)
Q. There’s a rumor that Kise can’t draw, but how bad is he? I’d love it if I could actually see it. I’d also like to know how well Aomine can draw, since he’s in the top two dummies of the Generation of Miracles. A. [See above for drawings. Left is Kise’s drawing, a dog, and on the right is Aomine’s drawing, a cat.]
Q. The Kouhaku Singing Competition is a big part of New Years, so of the Kuroko no Basuke characters, who’s the best singer? Please also tell us who’s as terrible as Gian. A. The best –> There’s only Himuro. The worst –> Nebuya. Also: These characters didn’t sing as expected at karaoke–> surprisingly good –> Furihata, Hayakawa surprisingly bad —> Miyaji, Nijimura
Q. How many layers are in the osechi in the Akashi family, and is there some kind of really expensive food inside? Also, does Murasakibara’s zouni have chocolate or something else sweet in it? A. 4-5 layers, and pretty much any expensive ingredients you can imagine are in it. The zouni is normal. What’s crazy is the amount of shiruko.
