The festival dedicated to comics, animation, video games and science fiction, Comics & Games Luccaheld in Italy and attended Atsushi Ohkubothe author of the popular manga franchise Soul eater Y fire force (Enen no Shouboutai). In his meeting with the journalists, he commented on his work and the hard work involved in returning to the industry, so much so that in the past he had said that Fire Force would be his last work.

«Is it really his last work?» asked one of the journalists. «It’s true, I said it. But now I’m thinking better of it. Sometimes I even thought that I couldn’t do it anymore, but now I think I can do other things, maybe with the machines to draw by themselves. Some people destroy themselves with work, I don’t want to do that, I need a break, a break», replied the author.

«Is participation in this convention work or leisure?», he asked afterwards. «On a definite break, I have fun at Lucca Comics & Games», replied the author. «The theme of madness is recurring in your works, is it important that there is a bit of madness in all of them too?», continued the questioning. «I try to show people’s insecurities. Without a little madness we would get stuck, we would die. In “Soul Eater” there is a relationship between madness and courage“, replied.

The work inspired a twenty-four-episode anime adaptation produced by studios David’s productionwhich premiered in July 2019, followed by a second season in July 2020, with a third season in production.
