Hello everybody! みんなげんき―!

My name is Martin. My most usual online nickname or handle is Rukishou, but I have used many different ones over the years such as Kesshomaru and Makkun (actually my previous mangaka pen name). The name I use when drawing manga is not my real name nor my handle Rukishou, but Yokaze, meaning night wind. I live in Sweden (always have), going the last year of obligatory school. One of my dreams have long now been moving to Japan after school, studying Japanese (not knowing that I would probably be fluent by that time) and becoming a professional mangaka. I don’t really want to be only a mangaka though, I want a more job job too, but maybe that’s too hard, doing both …
Anyway, it’s more than three years left until I finish school so I can plan more as the time approaches. ^^

I first saw anime when I was a little kid, too small to really remember it that well now, watching Sailor Moon on TV4. Later, Pokémon and even Digimon started airing (dubbed again *shiver-shiver*) and I watched those as well.
As I got a few years older I went into a bookstore with my dad and found a book that caught my eye: the manga Dragonball. I started reading the comic, buying all the books, and then, in the end of one volume, I first read the word “manga.” I didn’t really understand what it meant, nor did I care at the time, but after a while I had gotten interested in manga (I really don’t remember the details between this …) and started reading all manga that got published in Sweden. After a few years manga started to get quite popular in Sweden and more companies started giving out more manga and it got harder to read them all (not-so-good comics came too, so I didn’t even want to get them all anymore). Now I mostly only buy books in English and, from time to time, Japanese.

If anywhere in the text above it seems like I stopped writing and started again three weeks later without reading what was written before, it’s because I can’t concentrate or focus for too long. I’m sorry for that, please try not to be bothered by it.
