The creator behind the story Ming and Dracoa, Lianu.Kamipress: What do you think about when making a Kamishibai story?
Lianu: "Most of the time, I don't know. I write them as they go along. Oh yeah, I have the storyline and where I want them to go in my mind, but I just do the Kamis as I go and they end up at the points I want in the end."Kamipress: What is the hardest part about making a Kamishibai story?
Lianu: "I'd say it would be making really hard animations.. Because I'm impatient and lazy."Kamipress: What's your favorite part of making a Kamishibai story?
Lianu: "I love drawing Ming doing stupid and cute things then having Dracoa finish it by screaming at her."Kamipress: How did get into Kamishibai?
Lianu: "Quova-hime got into it first, and I LOVED her Kamis! I've been trying to do them for a year now, but the stories never fit. Then me and my friend Jon got the idea for this story.."Kamipress: What are some of the things that influenced Ming and Dracoa?
Lianu: "I think Slayers influenced me alot on this Kamishibai.. Also Dragon Ball Z infulences will be visable later in the series."Kamipress:There been alot of talk recently about violance and swearing in kamishibai,how do you feel about this issuse?
Lianu: "Well it really depends on the character. For example, Helve is a really mean, angry tempermentle person and if she DIDNT swear or act violent, it wouldn't be HELVE! If Ming swore, it wouldn't be Ming! So it depends on the character's personality."Kamipress: Who are some of your favorite Kamishibai artists?
Lianu: "Quova-hime,Chibi Alex-Chan, Root, Dave13.(I'm new at this and my computer is slow at downloading Kami.. so I dont know THAT much..) "Kamipress: So what are some of the Kamishibai you're considering for the future?
Lianu: "Sorceress Legend, Mahou Shoujo, The adventures of the crazy fire hazzard Jennifer, Demonic Ocean."Kamipress: What are your favorite animes?
Lianu:"Sabor Marionette J, Evangelion, Master of Mosquiton, Dragon Ball Z."Kamipress: So do you have any additional comments, concerns, or thoughts for us?
Lianu: "Consider the dandelion... Meanwhile, I will be going through your stuff!"
"I think the REAL Kami artists are the ones who draw their Kamis and write them. The artists who make those pathetic Sailor Moon copy-off-Kamis should be kicked out of society!"Thanks for your time Lianu.
