The English-language Daily Yomiuri newspaper has translated an interview that otaku media personality Shoko "Shokotan" Nakagawa conducted with Gegege no Kitaro horror manga creator Shigeru Mizuki. Besides being a big fan of Mizuki ever since her father gave her the entire Gegege no Kitaro manga series, Nakagawa is also a manga artist in her own right and a voice actress in Mizuki's recent Hakaba Kitarō anime (pictured at right). In the interview, the two talk about the theme of death, traveling abroad, and their daily routines.
