The Princess of Tennis is my true story about working as a mangaka's assistant in Japan.

"What do you think? Should I apply?
It would be totally awesome to be Konomi-sensei's assistant, don't you think? ^^;;;
Maybe he likes tall, cute foreigners enough that he'll overlook my lacking language skills?
*starts studying like mad*"

That was the entry that I posted on my blog on September 4, 2008. My Japanese wasn't that great, but it was passable.

I shouldn't have been worried, because I ended up working for Konomi-sensei for well over a year.

As an assistant mangaka.

This is a true story. My true story. But it could be yours.

I stumbled upon this book on Twitter. Saw one of your tweets retweeted by Grace. And now here I am. xD

I think I got into anime around 2007 and ever since I stuck with it. Then, I've began to read manga. Now I've turned to webtoons/manhwa. They're all amazing!
