Inoue sensei held a conference on Saturday to talk about his works and answer the audience’s questions. He mainly told us things about Slam Dunk, Vagabond, and his illustration book Pepita. I will try to summarize the contents of this conference with the best of my abilities.
This year too, the “Salon Du Livre” taking place during the 22th to the 25th of March will have manga authors as guests. Last year, Thermae Romae’s author, Yamazaki Mari was present. This year, it’ll be Fuyumi Soryou, Nakamura Hikaru and Inoue Takehiko. Fuyumi Soryou did Mars and ES, two of my favorite mangas. Inoue Takehiko did Slam Dunk, and is currently doing REAL, another favorite. Nakamura Hikaru does Arakawa Under The Bridge, yet another favorite.
You can get in for free if you’re a student so I’m definitely planning to pay it a visit.
