“So I can say with full confidence to those who dream of becoming a mangaka: even if you suck, it’s okay!♥ Just try your hardest and please don’t give up! Even if it’s bent, smudged, done in a felt pen, done in ten seconds per panel, or done with no rough draft, just be sure to make those deadlines. Anything is okay. Even if it sucks, it might become an anime someday!” — Naoko Takeuchi
PS this is what I mean when I talk about her being rushed- SHE DID A LOT OF STUFF AT ONCE, like do the numbers of what she’s talking about here.I guess I kinda get more defensive of her than other artists because she’s pretty clearly aware of a lot of the flaws and really apologetic about it. And I still really like her work despite all those limitations! So.i just like her i think she’s cool…and always will…
this makes me like takeuchi about 500 times more omg it’s so cute… i’m glad that she’s aware of the flaws in her work too (though probably a little too aware) (honey it’s ok sshh)
also these are some real inspirational words of advice yo

I love these so much, I wish she made more!! I would just read an entire graphic novel of her talking about her experiences. She’s my hero.
I respect the hell out of her for drawing so much work in so little time.
Unfortunately I kind of agree with her about the quality of the artwork, which is why I never collected the manga. D: I want to now, just for completion’s sake, but it would be over a hundred dollars at least.
