My Bio
I am a professional artist working in Japan. I draw manga and picture books, and I also contribute to the gaming industry.

I am very happy to have this forum in which I am able to share my artwork and my thoughts with the English community, an open and relaxed opportunity I never thought I'd have.
My English skills are quite limited, which means I rely on my friend Kwibi for almost all of my English communications.

I wanted to take the time to properly explain my limitations with English, and to mention the fact that I have to prioritize my work in Japan above all other artistic ventures. Although this means that my participation on DA will be sporadic, and that I won't be able to keep up with or reply to all English comments, I hope you will continue to support my efforts here on DA.

Again, I am very happy to be here, and I feel lucky to be surrounded by so many friendly and wonderful people who have stopped by to view and comment on my work. Thank you all so much for making me feel welcome here. It is because of people like you that I am able to do what I do, and it is for you that I work as hard as I do.

日本で漫画描いたり、絵本描いたり、ゲーム製作のお手伝いをしたりしてます。

英語圏の皆さんに向かって、ゆるりと自分の絵や、それにまつわる考えだったりを伝えれる場を得る事ができ、とても嬉しいです。私自身は英語が得意では無いので、英語での交信は殆ど友人のKwibiに英訳してもらっています。

そんな感じで、私が英語で対応できるのには限界があります。日本での仕事もありますし。なので、deviantARTでの更新は仕事の合間になります。優しく見守ってくれれば嬉しいです。

deviantARTで、こんなに友好的で素晴らしい皆さんに迎えられ、絵を見てのコメントをいただき、感謝感謝です。応援してくれる皆さんのおかげで、仕事に打ち込めます。
みんなの為にも頑張るよー!

Whoa, now I'm getting ambushed by all kinds of clever questions! Maybe I shouldn't have said anything at all? ;) When we were working to release Gigamix in Japan, it took a long time to get it all together properly and I was grateful for everyone who showed excitement over it. With this new project, I hope I can count on everyone to once again be patient with us as we work to produce something that will delight you! The one thing I hope you'll all believe is that I love Mega Man with a passion! ... even if most of my tweets lately have been about Pokemon. (lol) I promise I will make announcements as soon as there is new information I'm al

Oh my god ARIGA IS THAT REALLY YOU?!! I LOVE HOW YOU DREW MEGAMAN CHARACTERS YOUR MANGA IS SO GOOD OMG OMG OMG

Happy belated Birthday.

Oh My Gosh.


I never knew you had a DeviantArt ;=;


I would like to thank ya for creating Rockman MEGAMIX/GIGAMIX, I admit in my early internet days, I run into scams of MM3 ver. at some point, as I don't know Japanese, I loved to interpret the scenes of what could be happening or so. In the Megamix ver. with Megaman 3 bots, my favest part is when Needle-Gemini-Magnet-Hard are together... I admit I laugh about this peculiar tag team XD


I have Gigamix vol.1/2/3, I like to keep looking to Needleman ^^.


Now with Google Translate app I use it to read, or at least get some idea of the words to form a context, and due to that, I enjoy even more your Megamix/Gigamix mangas~.

^o^

Your manga and art style inspired original music in me, and original fan fiction. I love the Rockman series with all my heart and its ability to reincarnate itself and keep magically inspiring me is something no other franchise has been able to do. The spirit and wonder that speaks to my inner child has helped me to hold on to the best parts of myself. When I came across this darker and even more emotional variation that is megamix and gigamix, I was suddenly experiencing a new magic and depth. Now, I wanted to explore the possibility of going even further with the torment and pain of being in a world constantly at war. I wanted to go even more mature. You are a genius story writer and art director.

Haven't been visiting dA in a while. Though I still check out your YT and streams!

I really like your Mega Man Megamix and Gigamix manga!
