Japanese manga YouTuber Otoreko recently visited the home of mangaka Akihito Tsukushi, the man behind Made in Abyss. The mangaka sat down with the YouTuber to show off his workplace, his Mac Computer and his Wacom where the magic of Made in Abyss actually happens. There are also some paraphernalia which he uses as references for his drawings in there, from a young girl’s torso to a collection of toothbrushes and school bags.
In the interview, the mangaka revealed his many influences and a bit about his life. Tsukushi revealed that he started his career as a game designer and illustrator. He then became a mangaka in 2012, citing various works, such as Hayao Miyazaki’s The Journey of Shuna as being big influences to his own work.
As for his own manga, the series is experiencing a ton of successes. It just received an anime movie adaptation with Made in Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul, which started screening in Japan back in January. The anime is also getting a sequel project as well, though the mangaka did not talk about them in his interviews.
