Fujio Akatsuka(赤塚不二夫) is one of manga legends in Japan.
He left many great works, but I’d like to introduce his heartwarming episode.Reference From: http://bizmakoto.jp/makoto/articles/1212/31/news003.html
Fujio Akatsuka handed an original manuscript to an editor just before deadline. However, a big trouble waited them.
Editor: « I left and lost your manuscript on a taxi. »
He went back with pale. He couldn’t contact with a taxi driver.
But, he had to hand the manuscript to a printing office.
They were be in a real fix!!
However, Fujio Akatsuka didn’t get mad.
Fujio Akatsuka: « I have a rough and can still draw again. »
What do you think Fujio Akatsuka said next?
Fujio Akatsuka: « We still have a time. Go for a drink!! »
These words surely come from his generosity for the editor.
He again drew the same manuscript and handed it to the editor.
Fujio Akatsuka: « This is the second. So, I can draw pretty better before. »
There is more to this.
The lost manuscript was sent from the taxi company to Fujio Akatsuka after one week.
Fujio Akatsuka: » Keep it!! Not to repeat the same mistake. »
The editor had kept this manuscript to keep in mind not to do so again.
