So, this cute manga character is supposed to be me! Yes, it's awfully cute!
This character was made for my latest book published in Japan this summer. He has a magical power to help people clear clutter, find their true wishes, and make them come true.
Also, he is addicted to chocolates...
What I have learned is, things sell better if they are cute. Japanese pop culture is indeed "kawaii=cute" culture. They even turn a 41 year old man like me into such a cute figure. It's almost magical!
I hope my readers don't get disappointed when they see me in person.
Do I like him? Oh, yes, I am in love with him!
