"The caption on Arakawa's illustration reads, "Human Transmutation Accomplished"

Izumi Curtis must be so jealous.

Hiromu Arakawa is simply an impressive person to be able to work under those circumstances without taking massive breaks. She is clearly a person to look up to in terms of work ethic.

Congratulations to my favorite mangaka! I do hope she gives herself a little break.

I have a feeling this woman is going to end up being the world's oldest living manga-ka.
Just so much damn life in her.

Wow, that's three more children than I thought she had. She must be busy, especially if she's also creating more Silver Spoon.

I haven't complete FMA/FMAB yet but still, congrats to her and wish her newborn baby the best. It is indeed impressive that she didn't take much breaks during her labour, it isn't good for her health, wish she would get some rest instead, so that she wouldn't fall sick like Oda. Oda has to take this chance and rest more, or else he will regret it someday. All the best to both of them.

By the way, I played [the soundtrack of] Pacific Rim while I was pregnant with my baby.


It'll be the most badass baby ever, I'm sure.

Shonen Sunday, the magazine she is in, don't publishes all weeks all their rooster, at least 2 or 3 series are always absent and all series rotate between publishing and absent. She doesn't works every time in a weekly schedule, like the guys from Shonen Jump, even though she works more than take breaks.

Thats why I said massive breaks I am talking about stuff like a couple of months.

Do you know Rumiko Takahashi? The author of Inuasha, Ranma 1/2? She works in the same magazine as Arakawa, now making Kyoukai no Rinne, and she works since 1978. Arakawa works since 1999, 21 years after Rumiko first work.
And Akimoto Osamu? Always worked in Weekly Shonen Jump since 1976, making "Kochira Katsushikaku Kameari Kouenmae Hashutsujo" A.K.A. Riotsu.
And Adachi Mitsuro? Right now he works in Monthly shonen Sunday(the Arakawa magazine monthly version), now making Mix, and he works since 1973. 1973 was the year that Arakawa was born.
And SAITO Takao, since 1966 doing Golgo 13(Still doing it).

Arakawa is way way far from being the world's oldest living mangaka.

I'm intrigued as to how a cow gave birth to a human! Laughing but in all seriousness, congratulations to Arakawa. I didn't realise she had kids at all.

She didn't. She used Human Transmutation and boom! A healthy baby. Laughing

Anyway, congrats on Arakawa and her new baby, who will a future Jaeger pilot in the future. Wink
