About our introductory articles


Arakawa Hiromu is the Japanese female manga artist. She's so popular as the author of Fullmetal Alchemist. Inside and outside, many anime fans must have watched the anime whose origin's her manga. And this time I will not talk about Fullmetal Alchemist, but Noble Farmer (Hyakusho Kizoku).

Arakawa was born in 1973 Hokkaido as the fourth daughter of a farm. She was, needless to say, familiar with farming. She went to an Agricultural High School in Hokkaido. After the graduation, she'd worked for her family business several years. In 1999, she left her home and moved to Tokyo alone in order to be a manga artist. And the 20th century went away silently, they welcomed the 21st. Arakawa began to serialize Fullmetal Alchemist in 2001. It became popular so much, she also got well-known.

Fullmetal Alchemist was been on 2001 to 2010. It became TV animation, and the animated films were there at theaters in 2005 and 2011 Japan. By the way, the theme songs were both sung by L'Arc-en-Ciel. If you have watched those films somewhere, you must have listened.


I have to describe something about Noble Farmer now.

It silently started as essay manga on an unpopular magazine for ladies in 2006. As mentioned above, she was originally a farmer. And she thinks differently from metropolitan now and then. Why not have it into manga? And Noble Farmer appeared. It also got popular, kept on over 15 years. How does she write the difference between farmers and urban people? Its main characters are the two: Arakawa Hiromu and Ishi-san (female editor). They talk, the story goes on. Ishi-san stands for metropolitan.
