"If they have no water, then let them drink milk."
Before becoming a manga author, Hiromu Arakawa was a farmer for seven years in Hokkaido. She raised cows, grew vegetables, feared bears and got jerked around by squirrels! She worked all tear long from morning to night without any breaks - and it was tough! If you read the manga, you'll understand. Farmers are cool!! The author of Fullmetal Alchemist presents her life of blood, sweat and laughter in comic (and now in anime) form!!
