  • Thu, 03:03: Discovery of the day: I just realized that @Nonoyamasaki, who is drawing the new Gurren Lagann manga, was an assistant to Hiromu Arakawa.
  • Thu, 03:04: Because after the news that Arakawa had her 3rd baby broke, she tweeted that she was there when Arakawa went to give birth to her 1st son.
  • Thu, 03:05: So I flipped to the back of several volumes of FMA & Juushin Enbu and sure enough, Arakawa names "Nono-san" among her assistants.
  • Thu, 03:06: And a few times she's drawn her assistants, she's drawn one of them with a star avatar.
  • Thu, 03:08: And flipping to the back of Otoko Ippiki-hen...Nono draws herself as a star. http://t.co/fRRGhQaXmj
  • Thu, 03:10: It appears Nono went along when Arakawa took her assistants on a trip to China too (from Juushin Enbu omake).
  • Thu, 03:13: Nono also contributed to some toilet relay 4-koma (when Arakawa & assistants would draw a panel before going to the bathroom).
  • Thu, 03:14: So yeah, that's the result of my quick research. XD I love finding connections between my favorite things so this is really neat!
  • Thu, 03:15: And it's fun looking at those relay 4-koma and seeing the panels that Nono drew, and how FMA characters look in her style.
  • Thu, 03:23: Arakawa started including Nono in her Special Thanks in Volume 10 of FMA, first published April 2005.
