I feel like Toriyama had no problem showing his face until Oda decided not to.

Kind of weird, but a cool interview.

Wow, that's cool, if only we got an interview like this but with our boy Miura.

 I wanna know what he thinks about the future of Berserk nowadays.

Yeah, it's not like nobody knows what he looks like or you can't find pictures of him happily posing for the camera, but considering how big Dragon Ball was and still is, and since he's no longer actively producing it, maybe he wants to keep a lower profile these days? But then... don't do interviews, or just accept the bump in awareness until it recedes again? You're right, it's weird, but there's a certain logic to it that the less people that recognize him at the newsstands or cafe, the better for his day to day life.

Counter theory: Ki blast to the face! :guts:

He's given two lengthy interviews in the past 2 years: The 2016 Guidebook and the one with Hakusensha's new president ( Part 1 | Part 2)

Nice interview, but i'm getting tired of waiting for him to get back to Vagabond or Real...

Do what I did and stop actively waiting and assume it's over... until proven otherwise. :griffnotevil:

IDK about Real, but there's a decent case Inoue was/is just done with Vagabond and even if he goes back its going to go nowhere again or be perfunctory as hell. Plus, besides his personal feelings about it, he already wrote the epilogue and de facto ending and everyone knows what's going to happen in the climax anyway; the only way he could do something interesting with it is have Kojiro win. =)

I go into detail in the post below with links to Inoue's thoughts and a summary of the exhibition where he kind of wraps up everything before he gets there.

Yeah you're right, I should do that. :sad:
