They Say About This Website...
Very appreciated comments.
Working at this website has taken (and it is still taking) a lot of time.
Anyway, I am very proud of it, and happy to share everything I have and I feel with fans
from all over the world.
The best rewards for me are the nice messages I receive from visitors by email and in the guestbook. Moreover, sometimes I happen to find that someone wrote about this website and suggested to visit it. Those people never contacted me, but I happened to find their messages in internet and it was a really nice surprise. I can't link their websites back in my Links page because they are not Garasu no Kamen related, but I decided to create this page and dedicate it to those people who made me very, very happy.
PS. Believe me, I didn't pay them to write those things :)
Ms Yuko Yanai interviewed me for an article dedicated to Glass no Kamen's 40th anniversary. AERA magazine (August 28th, 2017).
Thanks to wonderful KATE for the translation.
Francesca Mancuso, an Italian woman (38), first saw the anime, and then got addicted to the manga.
She runs the website "Maya's Glass Mask". She is known in Japan as an avid fan. She is currently working as a designer in the UK. We interviewed her via email.
"Maya is full of passion and she is working very hard to chase her dreams. That is what resonates with me. And I love Masumi Hayami, who is Murasaki no Bara no Hito. He is a secret admirer who supports Maya's career secretly. It is natural for many women to adore him."

Great story, but very frustrating to have an author who publishes so seldom. I found synopsis of chapters not online at [link to this website], posted by a fan in Italy. I'm a little miffed this isn't in English somewhere and grateful to this Italian fan who published her synopsis in English.

Thank you, Francesca. I've never imagined that there would be someone like you. Thank for your patience so much.
The one of the most popular Mangas,"Glass Mask". I was really touched to see her English fan site about this, especially to see the her point of view in "Characters". There are lots of fan drawings and pictures as well.

"I've been re-reading this series of Japanese manga (in Chinese) -- from vol. 1 on to 41 -- a few are missing *sniff*. I'm still so fond of the story. It really should be translated into English and introduced to not only Manga lovers but also people who are into theater. I'll have to do an entire entry explaining this series (Mask of Glass) and my obsession. For an obsession it surely is: for the past 20 odd years and for an unfinished story, nonetheless. To get a sense of the story and the level of obsession this series can cause, visit this site from Italy"
