I’ll be switching over to my new account. I’m only going to a follow a minimal amount of people that are on my followers list, and those who follow first.
What kind of impression of Road do you have, sensei?
“I drew her as a boyish girl at first but she has slowly become more girlish. I think Road is adorable. The Millennium Earl probably feels the same judging from the way he spoils her (laughs). Being unable to tell whether she’s an adult or a child – that mysterious image of hers is her charm. I like her silhouette and her clothes and her half-closed eyes… Everything about her is cute! She probably turned cuter because I drew her while thinking such things (laughs).”
What visual aspect do you pay most attention to?
“Actually, I recently decided to make her look more mature and changed her bangs. It’s only a small change, but I’ve made her bangs fall diagonally to try and bring out her feminine charm. I want to let Road grow. By the way, Road’s initial hair-style was quite difficult to draw. I struggled while thinking to myself, “What kind of construction is her head turning into!?” But lately I’ve gotten the hang of it. It’s fun to draw her hair nowadays.”
Why does Road change into various forms?
“In short, Road’s dream shapes Road’s current outer appearance. That’s why she can easily turn into a doll. Road’s current form is just the appearance that she likes most. It’s the appearance of the girl she wants to be – it’s connected to her inner self. She can’t freely shapeshift into anything like the way Lulu Bell can. For example, I think it’s impossible for Road to turn into an animal that’s completely different from her inner self.”
What is her image-color?
What’s in store for Road?
“Road will appear more in the future because she knows about Nea. She also has a relation to Nea so I think she’ll start to follow Allen around. Actually, Road is an important character and knows about the deepest parts of the story. It’s no exaggeration to say that if she’d disclose all her secrets d.gray-man would end (smiles wryly).”
