As a slightly associated note, Moto Hagio, a single of the very best mangaka ever and pioneer in the market, was also chosen this year as a Particular person of Cultural Merit. When I’m far from getting study all of her performs however, I’m super content for her just as I am for Miyamoto.
Even though personally speaking, I wouldn’t really feel any ounce of joy if I was ever awarded by the present Japanese government. I think it wouldn’t be fair to not mention it, but I know it is not the appropriate location either, so let’s just say Japan has a lot of problems like several other nations and is not some great location.
