Urasawa: When someone mentions the world “manga”, I think the first impression most people have is like what they think when they see the “smiley-face” on the Nirvana T-shirt you’re wearing. They think it’s just a very simple form of expression, just a simple abstract of someone’s emotions. But in the case of real humans, I think that’s completely erroneous. There are no identical faces in different situations, but instead there are subtle changes that occur in a person’s facial expression from moment to moment, and that’s what I try to capture. One time, I gave a lecture at a university, and it was an arts-focused institution, and I told the students, “If you really want to understand how to create manga, you shouldn’t go to art school first — you should take drama classes first and learn to understand human emotions and expressions before trying to step into the world of manga.”
