I still remember it clearly. (The 2008 Year August. March 30 The blog of the day is still here! (see below)

On the way back from dinner with Kazuo Umezu Sensei, I went to a select bookstore in Kichijoji called BASARA BOOKS ( Not anymore. ) So excited to find and read Mr. Ohashi’s Weekly Toucan!

It was self-published. 4 The book had been printed many times. He had submitted his work to various comic magazines for awards, but was unsuccessful at every one, so he started printing it himself.

The exchange continued, with occasional We had dinner and chatted in Kichijoji, but no matter how much time passed, Ohashi-san remained shy.

One day, I received an exhibition notice that he had painted a picture, and I was allowed to purchase it. He said he had painted over a picture he had found at a prop shop selling junk. (Isn’t this painting precious?).

The city is full of talented people. However, those who produce content are just businessmen, so they have little time to walk the streets and cannot be found.

So, I hope that those who aspire to enter the entertainment industry will just walk around the city and find great talent.
