I hope he never touches a pen in his live ever again.

... He referenced Gantz a few times in Inuyaiki. Never realised he was the one who wrote it, guess I gotta read Gantz now.

Some of his works have pretty interesting concepts, but sadly he doesn't really know how to develop them well enough past the initial chapters (or volumes), and even less finish them....

Underrated? Hardly.

His works range from below-average to average to me.

inuyashiki was shit.

Oku, you sir are one of my idols. Gantz is by far my favorite manga and I must've read the whole story about 3 times through. I can draw so much from it every time and find the brutal honesty in the story and characters a breath of fresh air. Your interviews are always amusing too, like you're just having fun instead of trying hard to prove how intelligent you are. Gantz speaks for you there. I'm enjoying Inuyashiki so far as well as Gantz:G and look forward to the CGI film later this year. Hopefully it'll do the manga more justice than the anime and live action films did (though they're still pretty good). Here's to the future!

Making you do Hen was just a waste of your time and talent.
