The creator behind the story Spirits and Mythology series, Frecklegirl.
Kamipress: What do you think about when making a Kamishibai story?
Frecklegirl: "Pretty much just the story. I get really caught up. "
Kamipress: What is the hardest part about making a Kamishibai story?
Frecklegirl: "The images. All of mine are edited."
Kamipress: What's your favorite part of making a Kamishibai story?
Frecklegirl: "The storyline. I love writing it!"
Kamipress: How did get into Kamishibai?
Frecklegirl: "It started out with Vanillacat showing me Otaku World, first I was into KiSS dolls, then she showed me Kamishibai and I thought 'Hey, I can do this!' The more I read, the more I wanted to make one of my own."
Kamipress: What are some of the things that influenced Gemstone Spirits
Frecklegirl: "Magic Knight Rayearth. It's very heavily based on that. Maybe TOO heavily. ~_~*
Kamipress: How about Mythology stories?
Frecklegirl: "I always liked mythology, and I'd seen it woven into the plots of some popular stories so I figured people liked mythology and would like to see it fully explained"
Kamipress: Who are some of your favorite Kamishibai artists?
Frecklegirl: "Oh, gosh. Well almost everybody down at the forum! Umm...Chibi Alex-chan, Megchan, Meagan, Rebo-chan, Ribby, Ara-san, Vanillacat, Jaysen, Kaze Neko, Shael, Tenchi, Firefly, Lianu, Lisa (aka Quova), Kodachi Batchix....but I'm sure there are more somewhere."
Kamipress: So what are some of the Kamishibai you're considering for the future?
Frecklegirl: "What I want is a great story with a completely original storyline that fits my tastes with good characters and good art. I just have to think of it....Oh! Yeah! REAL upcoming stories! Well I'm modernizing Romeo and Juliet and calling it Rochelle and Jonathon, complete with voice actors. I just have to collect everybody's wav's. Any guys out there, I still need male voices!! Please! Also, Vanillcat and I are working on a remake of A Midsummer Night's Dream. It is going to be COOL! There was also this story called Atlantis, but when my computer crashed it got deleted, so I've kinda scrapped it."
Kamipress: What are your favorite animes?
Frecklegirl:"A lot. Um, Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon, Pocket Monsters Pokémon, Magic Knight Rayearth, Ranma 1/2, Slayers, Dragon Half, Saber Marionette J, Fushigi Yuugi, Gundam, and many more..."
Kamipress: So do you have any additional comments, concerns, or thoughts for us?
Frecklegirl: "I really hope you guys liked my stories!! Please, if you did, email me and tell me so. Arigatou. Oh, yeah, if anyone needs a voice actress email me about that too! I love doing that...Anyway, ja matta! ~frecklegirl aka sarah ;) "
