    [HOT] Interviews with Kishimoto

    Updating the first post to include all of Kishimoto's known interviews:

    Kishimoto interview @Jump Festa 2008
    Spoiler show


    The one where he says he doesn't know what that thing is on Naruto's arm:

    An interview where Kishimoto answers as Kakashi:

    Hidden Leaf Q & A – 58 Questions asked to Masashi Kishimoto!
    Spoiler show


    Spoiler: 2009 interview show
    Spoiler: Jump Festa 2009 show
    Spoiler: 12/2008 Interview show

    Apologies that this has taken so long. To be honest, I really thought that someone out there would have a copy of Shonen Jump's Naruto Anime Profiles Episodes 1-37 by now, as it has been widely available here in the UK, for about a month - specifically someone with a scanner!

    Just a note: I typed everything exactly as is, including punctuation such as exclamation marks, parentheses (brackets) and the three-dot ellipsis (...) except that I've often used British spelling (just out of habit). Typing all this certainly brought back memories of learning to touch type back in school! My fingers are tingling!

    EDIT: On page 2 Gold Knight has also typed out an interview that Kishi did for Shonen Jump as Kakashi!

    Enjoy.




    Most interesting comment? Q1. For me, that answers a long debated question about how closely related the anime and manga are in the making.

    Q7 was the other - Anko! Why the heck didn't he develop her more?!? She's my favourite female character too, and for the same reason as Kishi! How frustrating! I guess he can't develop every single character. Dammit.

    The other thing I found interesting was the length of time he spends on chapters. I thought it might take quite a while just to get the drawings down pat - and then there's the writing, editing etc. So yeah, hard work.

    Anyway, those are what I found interesting.

    I wish he would develop some of the other characters too...

    It is always great to get the words from the authors mouth

    I would have posted this in the Anime forum, but many of the questions concerned the manga (and this is a library!) so here are just a few sample questions that I thought were particuarly interesting.
    Any chance for posting all of them?

    Re: Interview with Kishimoto

    There is a chance - though not soon. There are about 50 questions and it's a matter of getting time to type them all out (I don't have a scanner). I'll see if I can do something like that at the weekend.

    Hmm...I would have thought loads of people would have a copy (someone with a scanner at least!). Is it not available in America?

    Re: Interview with Kishimoto

    If I could get my hands on that interview I would transcribe it the very same day!! It'd try to make it look good and easy to read too!! So, if you have a friend who has a scanner or if anyone bored to type has a clear image of the interview PM me. By the way, I'm talking about English, I (sadly) don't understand Japanese (yet).

    Rmmm nope.
    When author says:
    I hope something happens to my characters in my manga.
    He says:
    I want something to happen to my characters in my manga

    So he says that he wants Ino, Saku and Hinata to have a love life. Which is logical since earlier he stated that he wants to put in romance in part 2.
    IMO ofcourse :]
