Nisio Isin is the creator of famous anime such as the Monogatari series, Bishounen Tanteidan, Juuni Taisen, Medaka Box and Katanagatari, but he has several novels and manga he still writes that could win anime.
Nisio Isin recently gave an interview to a website where some curiosities about his life, work, etc. were revealed. It turns out that this interview can only be viewed by paying a subscription to the site where the interview was published.
However, some people who subscribed to the site began to share some of the things that the interview revealed, so here you will see what some of these things are.
The most interesting points of the interview is that Nisio Isin admitted that he is not very good at writing “plots”, he says that he writes to explore the characters, and because they act the way they act, that’s how he writes.
His work day is very busy, he spends the whole day writing with only a few nap breaks between work. He also sleeps with his pants on, which is less work to get ready when he gets up in the morning.
Still on the writing part, he said that he puts the background sound of anime or live action series of his works in loop to write. A day he can write from 15,000 to 20,000 characters, when he was in his 20s he could write more.
When Nisio Isin had his first work published, he felt as if he had “crossed the finish line” by becoming a professional author. Now he said he feels like he just got started.
Before he wrote every book so that he wouldn’t have regrets, as people could die at any moment, but the older he got he realized that people don’t die that easily.
In his words: “Life is not so simple that things can end as soon as the series has a happy ending”.
And these were some curiosities about Nisio Isin.
