Ok, this is a long shot but I'll try it...

I've run into what appears to be a caricature of the elusive Tatsumi Wada, the artist on the manga and one of the three creators of Hiryu et al.

Attached Image

The guy I got this from tells me it was published with the manga in a section where several manga-ka spoke to their fans to give thanks and that sort of thing. Now he wasn't sure whether it was in the original or Gaiden chapter. So, for those who own the manga, can you confirm if this image comes from there? I think it is more likely to come from the serialized chapters and/or the Gaiden release, but it doesn't hurt to ask if this was in the tankoubon issue.

I trust the guy so I don't think this is fake, but I'm always happier to know the source it comes from. Besides, its the only representation of Wada we'll likely ever get, so I want to use it in the wiki.

Ok, long post. Hope someone can help! Bye!

Oh, it seems this topic caught the attention of oversees fan Mokkorimogeta (the one who scanned the Gaiden), and has confirmed this is indeed Tatsumi Wada's caricature from the Gaiden's publication!

https://twitter.com/mokkorimogeta/status/767393923694157824

The little message from Wada reads: "A lot of thanks for all the fan letters after I completed "Strider Hiryu"! Hope you enjoyed the Gaiden. (Tatsumi)".

Thanks a lot for the help, mokkorimogeta! ありがとうございます! smile.gif

Nice! Are you gonna set that as his pic on his Strider Wiki bio?

That's the plan, now that it's confirmed to be him. I'll be doing it after I finish with a few more "Creators" pages, been a bit blocked writing those currently. Plus, there's also my other projects and translations (I've got some amazing new things to post, trust me!) so I'm pretty swamped here.

Now I only need a pic/cartoon of Tetsuo Shiba, though.

I was poking around in the Creators section of the Wiki and it's looking really good. Your hard work is paying off.

Did you dig up anything else Shiba's written? I never could.

Thanks! It was something I worked on for a good time, checking up sources and tracking down all those game credits. Really appreciated! http://I.imgur.com/qqrosJb.gif

Regarding Shiba, my initial attempt bore no fruits either, there's not much mention of him at all. I've yet to give up but I may just have to create a stub for him with the little info we have in the end, if there's nothing I can find (or info I can't determine if its referring to him).

Perhaps, like Wada's caricature here, someday something will surfice about him...
