• The Dawn of the Witch

    29 December 2022

    Manga fans among you might be familiar with the series, The Dawn Of The Witch. I must admit I haven't read it yet, but it's definitely on my radar, especially since I read an interview with its writer, Kakeru Kobashiri, on the MIPON site, and saw her answer to the following question:

    M: When you’re writing, are you inspired by any overseas media like books or films?

    K: Oh, absolutely. I’ve been influenced by a lot of overseas works. I really liked this series called The Saga of Darren Shan. [And] Lord of the Rings was also a major influence. I loved reading the translated version for younger readers as well. A lot of fantasy novels will be translated for younger audiences here in Japan.

    She certainly has great taste in books, so I have high hopes for the series!!! :-) You can read the full interview by clicking here:
