What do you think? Should I apply?
It would be totally awesome to be Konomi-sensei’s assistant, don’t you think? ^^;;;
Maybe he likes tall, cute foreigners enough that he’ll overlook my lacking language skills?
*starts studying like mad*

That was the entry that I posted on my blog on September 4, 2008. My Japanese wasn’t that great, but it was passable.

I shouldn’t have been worried, because I ended up working for Konomi-sensei for well over a year.

As an assistant mangaka.

This is a true story. My true story. But it could be yours.
