NyanBazAt first let me ask a standard question. What kind of child were you when you were small? Did you like using your brain?
NyanBazWere you smart? Were you called a child prodigy?
NyanBazWhen did you encounter puzzles?
NyanBazWhy did you start Nikoli puzzles?
NyanBazIt is a book which Nikoli published some years ago.
NyanBazThat's rare, starting from "The puzzle missionary" . You did not go looking for Nob Yoshigahara's writings, and you still came to Nikoli.
NyanBazWere Nikoli puzzles fun?
NyanBazWhat is the puzzle which you liked first?
NyanBazWhen did you contribute puzzles to Puzzle Communication Nikoli for the first time?
NyanBazWhy did you start to make puzzles?
NyanBazWhat's the puzzle you like, now?
NyanBazAre there puzzles you are poor at?
NyanBazWhat? Numberlink was your debut! But you say you have become poor at it?
NyanBazI think that you make beautiful Slitherlink. Tell us about that?
NyanBazDoes your Slitherlink always have 40% numbered cells?
NyanBazThat is really something, not deciding on where to place the numbers but fixing the total!
NyanBazYou decided on it after your checking. You're really serious.
NyanBazThen when you are dating, do you also check out your partner first?
NyanBazAre you a herbivore man ?
NyanBazWhen you make puzzles, what are you careful about?
NyanBazI heard you are also an amateur magician.
NyanBazI saw you at it the other day, you're really good. Would you show me again!?
NyanBazOh! Marvelloius! The jumpinge card, that's cool! But you need agile fingerwork to do magic like that, don't you?
NyanBazIs there anything in common between making puzzles and doing magic?
NyanBazFor your self expression is it either puzzles or magic tricks?
NyanBazThank you for interesting stories and magic today. Now the last question, anything that you want to tell people solving your puzzles?
