    • 2009 January 10, Ohba, Tsugumi; Obata, Takeshi, “3ページ ペンとネーム [Page 3: Pens and Names]”, in BAKUMAN。バクマン。 [BAKUMAN.], volume 1 (fiction), Tokyo: Shueisha, →ISBN, page 104:
      これか これがネームか マンガ (しょう) () (しゅう)ページとかで ()にした (こと)あるけど
      Kore ka? Kore ga nēmu ka mangashō no boshū pēji to ka de me ni shita koto arukedo.
      So this is a name, huh? I’ve seen one on some application page for a manga award.

      Manga no shitagaki mitai na mon. Mazu kore o kaite henshūsha ni misete ōkē ga detara hajimete genkō ni dekiru ōkē ga deru made wa nando demo kakinaoshi. Motto mo nēmu de misete ii no wa mangaka toshite no sainō o mitomerareta yatsu na.
      It’s basically a rough sketch for manga. First you make one and show it to the editor, and only if it’s OKed can you go ahead with the draft. You may have to do it over a couple of times till it gets OKed. Though good manga artists can just pass with the name alone.
