Manga Artists Visited Fukushima

Our family went to Fukushima Airport last month coz we heard that famous manga/anime illustrators will be visiting Fukushima for an event to cheer the Tohoku people with their Joint Work Illustration plus a Paper Airplane Project. Manga artist displayed some of their works, comics, T-shirts and postcards, they also signed autographs to fans and had fun games during the event . No matter how much I would like to feature the persons behind the manga but with all respect, I just can't...

My husband and I have been a fan of the manga 彼女のカレラ ( My Favorite Carrera ) and we were excited to see the face behind the manga and finally met Kia Asamiya in person! I brought my manga with me and let him signed of course~ it was enough for me to have seen him person and to my surprise, he drawed Reina Todori ( the manga's main character) at the back of the books cover with his sign on! It'll be my ' takaramono ' ( treasure ) forever and he also gave me a signed postcard. Wakaba and Haruka however enjoyed making their paper airplane and was given some gachapon and candies.

The game portion was fun and exciting~ fans will have to request the illustrators to draw something in one minute! The best illustration that will be chosen and will be given together with a sign and the worst illustration will be displayed at their 'worst display whiteboard' for everyone to see till the event ends. It would be embarrassing for them but no matter how pro they are, they still have some weaknesses just like when a kid requested them to draw ultraman, lady illustrators had difficulties of drawing it and of course it was displayed as worst lol!
