HitoshiAriga's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Varied
I am a professional artist working in Japan. I draw manga and picture books, and I also contribute to the gaming industry.

I am very happy to have this forum in which I am able to share my artwork and my thoughts with the English community, an open and relaxed opportunity I never thought I'd have.
My English skills are quite limited, which means I rely on my friend Kwibi for almost all of my English communications.

I wanted to take the time to properly explain my limitations with English, and to mention the fact that I have to prioritize my work in Japan above all other artistic ventures. Although this means that my participation on DA will be sporadic, and that I won't be able to keep up with or reply to all English comments, I hope you will continue to support my efforts here on DA.

Again, I am very happy to be here, and I feel lucky to be surrounded by so many friendly and wonderful people who have stopped by to view and comment on my work. Thank you all so much for making me feel welcome here. It is because of people like you that I am able to do what I do, and it is for you that I work as hard as I do.




Whoa, now I'm getting ambushed by all kinds of clever questions! Maybe I shouldn't have said anything at all? ;)
When we were working to release Gigamix in Japan, it took a long time to get it all together properly and I was grateful for everyone who showed excitement over it. With this new project, I hope I can count on everyone to once again be patient with us as we work to produce something that will delight you!

The one thing I hope you'll all believe is that I love Mega Man with a passion!
... even if most of my tweets lately have been about Pokemon. (lol)

I promise I will make announcements as soon as there is new information I'm allowed to announce! Until then, I hope you'll all stick with me!

It's been three years since we've heard anything about the secret project! Can't you give us a hint??

Your work on the Megaman manga made me a Megaman fan! I love your art and I was surprised to find out you were the artist behind the Klonoa webcomic! (love the series)

I also was glad to know you worked on Pokemon x and Y!
