NobHave you liked puzzles since you were a kid?
NobReally! Was that puzzle just like Select Words in Nikoli? Then you were preceding Nikoli by ten years (laughs); but when did you start on pencil puzzles?
NobWhen did you start doing Nikoli?
NobHow did you start to make puzzles?
NobWhat do you aim for in your puzzles, crimson?
NobWhat do you think about when you are making puzzles?
NobYeah, I can agree with such a feeling. When you make hard puzzles, you don't think about the overall structure at the beginning?
NobSure. But then, what kind puzzles do you prefer?
NobLet me ask you now what a puzzle is to you?
NobThen, what's the entertainment in puzzles?
NobWhat drives you to keep making puzzles?
NobFor a last thing, tell about your dream.
