NyanBazDid you play with puzzles when you were little?
NyanBazYou've got to be kidding! (laughs). When did you get to know about Nikoli?
NyanBazSo Kakuro was the first for you. Did you solve all of the book?
NyanBazAfterwards, did you try out other puzzles?
NyanBazYou knew the internet site before you found out about the publications. Most other authors are coming there from contributing to the publications. I don't know many of the opposite case. Cases like your's may happen from now on though. What was the first issue of Puzzle Communication Nikoli that you bought?
NyanBazYou made a variety of puzzles from your early days. Why did you get into making puzzles?
NyanBazHow many puzzles are you making now? And are you making puzzles of all sorts of kinds and sizes?
NyanBazDon't even think about that, please.
NyanBazI see what you mean. But remember, nikoli.com, only requests puzzles from persons of proven ability. You should have more confidence in your work. Do you contribute puzzles to Puzzle Communication Nikoli?
NyanBazWhat is it you are saying! Puzzle Communication Nikoli has so many contributions among its readers. It is among those, that your work has been published. I think you are a great gunman. But, how about favorite puzzles, or puzzles you don't get along with, are there any of those?
NyanBazYou solve puzzles and make a lot of puzzles, Do you do anything besides puzzles? What do you do on holidays?
NyanBazAre there any puzzles that you are dying to make, some that you just have to do?
NyanBazYou are service oriented.
NyanBazLet's look beyond puzzles, that you want to do someday?
NyanBazAre you going to keep up making puzzles?
NyanBazWhat is a puzzle to you?
NyanBazNow the last question, anything that you want to tell people solving your puzzles?
