"Comics are carried by characters. If a character is well-created, the comic becomes a hit." - Kazuo Koike
"You ever think about why character popularity polls in manga happen? It’s because of what the quote above is trying to point out. While doing some research on legendary mangaka, Kazuo Koike, I learned about his philosophy in creating great characters to drive the story. His approach revolves around strong character development. It’s a truth that I believe that is very applicable to real life - emotional stories involving people/characters matter and you should think about using them to inspire others."
