HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT PARTICIPATING IN THE BANPRESTO WORLD FIGURE COLOSSEUM?
K: I’m excited.
I’m looking forward to interacting with the other international sculptors and seeing their reactions of the people from other countries.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AS A CREATOR:
K: I love creating things and for my graduation project, I created 50 figures based on youth culture. Later on I had my figures used in movies and dramas and learned about the joy of having your projects displayed along with the fun and hardships of crafting. My curiosity has led me to this point.
PLEASE EXPLAIN A PROJECT THAT HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN YOUR HEART.
K: “Bardock”, father of Goku, that won me the World Sculpting Arts Tournament 5 along with Mr. Nakazawa and the One Piece MSP and SMSP.
WHAT DO YOU VALUE AS A CREATOR? WHAT ARE YOUR OWN RULES FOR CREATING?
K: For work, I make sure to create something that I like myself. Next I focus on creating something the customer enjoys as well. I imagine the people that will be holding the figures and think about what they would want from it. My rule is to continue creating until I am fully satisfied with the project.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER IN ANIME, COMICS, ETC.?
K: Slam Dunk, Dragon Ball, One Piece
WHAT IS YOUR IMPRESSION OF JAPANESE FIGURES OR CREATORS?

HOW IS YOUR ENTHUSIASM FOR PARTICIPATING IN THE BFC? TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS TOWARDS SCULPTING?
K: I can’t wait to interact with the people from other countries. I’m curious about their views on sculpting. As for the creation, I just want to create a cool Luffy and want to research ways to display interesting expressions in the 3 dimensional shape. I’m excited myself at imagining what kind of Luffy I will create. I want to give my 100% effort and create a passionate project. I’ll do my best.
