Interview with Kujira

We received the following questions from a fan of Kujira, and he has kindly responsed.

Where did you study painting (manga)?
I didn’t study painting (manga) at all. I had seen manga I like, and kept practicing it.

Where can I get your manga?
I think you can get it at bookshops covering gay magazines. Please check with “G-men” or “Samson” as it has been published by them.

Is there any link between your name of Kujira and a whale?
When I first drew the manga as a professional, I was told to use a pen name. I then named myself “Kujira” as there was a poster of a whale on the wall of my room at that time.

How do you describe yourself?
I am…. lazy. My personality is…. I am often thought to be kind, but actually I am short-tempered.

Do you have figures like what we can see in your manga?
Yes I do. The reader made the figure of Suganuma of “White cream goes to where”, and gave it to me as a gift.

What star sign are you?
I’m a Taurus.
