Three years ago, when I moved from Osaka to Tokio, I rented a house in which I lived a really weird experience. Now that I remember, it seems to me that it was somenthing very interesting...
Well, all started when one of my assistants -Mr. K- had a nightmare, back then, we all work in the office 'til late night and woke up at noon (something very bad for the skin). Around that time, the assistants slept on the japanese style room (on the superiore, in alto floor), while I slept down stairs with my mom. It was always me who went to wake them up. One giorno they told me that before I showed up, there was always...

Miaka take clothes into the book, what about Yui?
Yui is a skilled girl, surely asked for silk to make her own underwear! And I think she wash her uniform every night.

Is Tomo homosexual? And that clothes he wears...
Exactly (without any hesitation), Tomo is homosexual...besides he likes Nakago (laughs). Would it be his sarcarsm a way to mostra his love? Unintentionally he became a character like this. That kind of clothes are taken from the Chinese classic opera. The feather is a part of that too but the actual make-up is much più showy.
After I drew Tomo I went to see the movie "Goodbye, my...

His image had changed since the beginning of the story.He didn't know what Amore was until he found Miaka,it was in that moment when he first felt that kind of feeling...she was his first love! Before I became a mangaka, when I was 18 years old,at the time of "Heart ni Houseki", I used to draw Tamahome. When I found that notebook,the character reborned after so long.
He's a guy hard to describe and da the other hand he seems to be a young sad boy with issues. His image is the one of a strong but fragil guy. da protecting someone,he also protects himself.
Tamahome makes te feel like hugging him...why would it be?

Everyone must have their own version of Miaka. She was drawn having in cosideration the pure color white. I don't know if I can say she's honest and pure...or maybe I wanted to draw an angelical girl. That's why she tries hard to do her best in every situation she faces but she's like a little girl who does everything wrong. She doesn't have a very strong confidence in herself and I'm sure te sometimes had complained about what she does,but have in mind that nobody's perfect in this world. She gets depressed most of the times and escapes from reality,but she tries. When te think "Why do...

The Genbu constellation that had a lot popularity: Hikitsu and Tomite. Especially Tomite.
Why they were the only ones left is due to the battle that took place 200 years ago, where both felt on a trap and died at the begining. They were the strongest combination of the seven, but Tomite threw himself to protect a child, and Hikitsu, who treat him like a little brother,also sacrificed himself to cover him. That's how thay both die before the battle was over and the remorse of not been able of participate in it made them became spirits who ended up with the responsability of protect the shin...

Isn't it unfair that Miaka has to find her constellations on her own, and in Yui's case her constellations reunited da themselves?
That's true. And is due to the differences between the Seiryu's constellations and Suzaku's. It is true that the SHI JIN TENCHI SHO says that the priestess has to find them with her own effort, but in the case of Yui, we could say that it was her energy what brought her constellations together. This could be one of Yui's abilities, but it proof that the power of Seiryu's constellations is huge. It means that their power of feeling the energy of the priestess is...

I made him homosexual just because I want it to make a joke, but now I think my decision was correct. When I was going to begin the story, Hotohori already had the image of a man as beautiful as any woman. But Nuriko had the figure of a man, he was tall and a gentleman, I have a picture of it...But that way,he'd turned up to be just a homosexual,that's why I ended up making him what he is...considering, although the Amore he felt for Hotohori make him a homosexual,there's nothing weird about it because he felt like a woman. It was like a sister (?),trustworthy,who have the cuore of a man and a woman.
In FY manga,Yuu Watase had answered some fan domande in the "free talk" section,but in the scanlations sites online that I've been Leggere it seems imposible to find these free talks (which are really informative and entertaining).
So,for those of te who read the manga online,or have the manga collection without the free talks (I've heard that Watase's handwriting is horrible,so I guess it'd too much work for the publisher)I'm gonna start to recopilate the Q & A,and these are the first:



How come Miaka and Tamahome understand each other if they speak different languages?
It turns out...

His kansai dialect is very funny. I wanted a character who was different to the others. I designed him having in consideration the concept of savage,because it didn't have too much sense that he was only different to Tama and Hori.I changed the design 3 times before I got to this one. The first one had a completely different personality and he was friend of Tamahome since childhood.Between being a bandid, a regular civilian, emperor, monk, doctor,etc, I wanted for him to be più outstanding.Part of that is based on the book "Suikoden" and his fan comes from the book "Saiyuki" because it just came up to me while talking about Oosaka,hahaha. Although te can't see it, Tasuki run very fast.When he first appeared,he kidnapped Miaka,right? He has a lot of strength and knows how to fight.He's not like the rest of the constellations that only have one ability,he have the hole package.

Taken from book 11
Which is the difference of time between the real world and the world inside of the SHI JIN TENCHI SHO?
There were already a couple of readers that began to calculate this. In particular, they disagree a lot about the priestess of Genbu, there's people saying she appeared 3 months earlier, a anno and a half and even 33 years ago...but in reallity there's not an established rule. I think that the math is based on the chapter 11, where it says that 3 months on the book, equalled two hours in the real world...Here I'm going to explain the way to understand it: when Leggere a novel, te may noticed...

What's the Kodoku made of?
The reference is about the poison that made Tamahome's fan cry in the Tankoubon 5...In reality is not something to control the other, but to kill. But well, at first Nakago detto he'd used the poison, but actually had thought to used another type of drug. The fact is that it was gonna get very complicated, so I left it like that...
About the elaboration of the poison, it's made of poisoned bugs...gosh, I don't know what I'm doing explaining this to te (How am I supposed to know how it was made of?!) Anyway...and about that incense that made Tamahome feel dizzy, it's...

She followed the phoenix to where it was leading her and she found a young boy holding a book. She picked it up from his hands, and the successivo thing she knew, Natalie was sucked into this mysterious book and as now staying in this nice and clean forest...

...One is based off an ancient Chinese creation myth about a goddess (Nu Kwa)who had, in the course of a divine war with rival deities damaged one of the "pillars" holding up the sky,causing water to pour from it onto the land and the horizon to become
lopsided.In order to stabalized things,she rebuilt the square-like "pillar" using colored stones that shone in the night sky,and placed four guardians in each corner of it,in order to keep it from collapsing.Another explanation concentrates più on the "time" application of the Four Gods formation.The moon's orbit was used da the ancient Chinese to measure the passing of seasons, each season represented da a guardian in the sky. It was believed that the moon passed one of the constellations ("seishuku")every few days,and that it took the passing of all 28 constellations to complete a full orbit of the moon,and therefore all the seasons.Each season was thus represented da the four guardians deities mentioned before.
The referred "four gods" are those who guard east, west, south and north,the four corners of the earth Seiryuu, Byakko, Suzaku and Genbu. Each god divided up the sky into four equal quadrants and the twenty eight Seishuku withim them were separated into seven.

According to ancient Chinese astronomy, the sky was divided into four quadrants, each quadrant representing a season of the year. These quadrants are then each divided into 28 different segments, called "sheishuku". The quadrants themselves are associated with colored animali deities that serve as guardians. These are Suzaku The Red Bird, Seiryuu The Blue Dragon,Genbu The Black tartaruga o Warrior and Byakko The White Tiger. The unique circular formation of the quadrants and constellations has many different explanations.
