Welcome :D

Let me show you some of my 4koma (about my life with cats).
Nao-p is my nick name my friend Mami Tachibana gave me. And I call her Mami-p. Of course it comes from Wedding Peach "Momo-p". No one calls me by the name except for her, but I love the 4 koma cartoon "Go Go Momo-pi (Gan-bare Momo-p)"(In the paperbacks) so I use it. :)
Oh, I'm a manga artist Nao Yazawa, and author of Wedding Peach, by the way. :)

These "comic strips" come from my 4-koma blog (in Japanese). You can see all of them in original here. If you have a request which 4koma will be next, tell me. :D

Manga Class for beginner

I had a manga class today, at Manga School Nakano.

The beginning -
One of my FB friend sent me a message

I'm going to Tokyo in this Oct., any suggestion the place to go?

I told him 太田記念美術館(Ota memorial museum. It's small, but good one) and 明治神宮
They are located near, you can walk.

And one more suggestion, coming to my school.

He said he didn't draw, but he was interested in it. Then it's done.

Because he doesn't draw, he has no idea how to draw character -  not at all.

So I suggested to ink on my pencil drawings. He inked on it, erased the pencil line, painted the black parts, then screen toned it. (He also drew from pencil drawing as well)
He said he enjoyed it, had wonderful time. I do hope so! 

See, if you hardly draw manga, still you can come and try drawing manga, with authentic manga tool. it would be interesting, and a special experience in Japan. 

Not cheap, though. 

The cost is 8000yen/2hour (private lesson)  If you are interested in it, contact me. 

*I recommend you Ota Memorial museum, honestly. They have very interesting special exhibition sometimes. :)

A Free Kindle campaign from 25 Oct.

It's about Moon and Blood 4 Japanese edition. It's not attractive so much for people who don't read Japanese , but I hope you DL it and enjoy the high resolution images.(I say I'm not satisfied with this level very much, but I think it is acceptable)

And if you read Japanese, it must be in interesting read. It has some extra pages for this KDP edition.
 And one more book.
I've just uploaded "Go Go Nao-p! 2". Sorry again, it's Japanese edition, not English. Because of the contents of the first volume, there are not enough 4koma for English edition. I've regretted now that I didn't compile the both edition in the same way. (I eliminated some 4koma, because they were difficult to translate) I'll release the English version, in several month later.

Unsalted Butter


I've given him olive oil (one tea spoon) before, a couple of times. I think it worked somehow, but he hated the taste. He licked his lips again and again for a while after I gave him it... So I tried butter......

The last attempt was failed

Venezuela, Comic Zulia.

As I mentioned on this blog, there was a problem of my trip to Venezuela.They couldn't get my fright ticket!

They didn't say they couldn't, they were trying. I had to wait for the result...and I waited for a while. 

A few days ago, I had an offer. It was during my trip (23th - 29th), but I had got no information yet. I asked to Comic Zulia, and got the answer "Tomorrow 10/09/2013 (date in Venezuela) we will talk with the agency last flights".

The I got the final answer - they couldn't make it, "the situation is out of our hand".
It's OK, there might be many difficulties to invite someone from overseas. But I wonder if they could see it in the early stage. It was a bit trouble because you have arranged your schedules around it.

Anyway, I'm sorry I couldn't go to Venezuela. They said they are thinking to do same next year.
It would be nice - I hope the ticket can be prepared in ahead of time, thought!

So I changed the title images from ComicZulia to International Manga Fest. This is positive, I'm going to be there. If you are in Tokyo on 20th Oct, come and have a chat with me! :)

From the book I'll sell there.

Troublesome Poo


He is OK as long as he eats enough Fiber Response Diet Food, but it means he doesn't eat Kidney Support Diet Food. There is no choice... -.-;
