How much do we really know about the author of Sailormoon?
In this topic we can discuss everything we discover about her.
a little while ago I discovered that Naoko Takeuchi had become pregnant of a third baby but lost her child to the eighth month of pregnancy.
She wanted to tell her life story in a manga from the series of mini stories entitled "Punch!" (this one in particular is called "Naoko & Yoshihiro's baby punch")

I had no idea that she had lost a child, I was shocked that no one cared much about a mother in distress and a baby about to be born. the part where she calls the hospital saying that she loses blood and in response is told "must take the appointment" or the one in which they made her wait three hours for a visit of 5 minutes (among other things it was a what is urgent, how do they evaluate emergencies?) maybe that's why she waited to announce the birth of her daughter, I think that creating this mini manga has served as an outlet for her to try to overcome such a traumatic event.
often she is considered a little frivolous because she likes expensive things, but I've always seen her as a good person and a little shy.



I also discovered a site where they published all the photos from the calendar that they gave at the wedding of Naoko and Yoshihiro Togashi with their exclusive drawings

I heard about the miscarriage a few months ago from a friend who read about it but that it was technically from her second pregnancy while the girl she gave birth to in 2008 was from her third. The latter was believed to be the reason why Togashi had one of his major hiatuses from Hunter x Hunter at the time since he was the one who revealed the birth a year later in volume 27 of that manga.

Speaking of Togashi, there's a little story in there about how she was feeding him a bit too well to the point that one of the people at Shueisha had to stop her since it was affecting his health (which wasn't great to begin with if you're familiar his issues during Yu Yu Hakusho).

What I want to know if the author deliberately lost the last few pages of that PQ Angels manuscript. :creeper:

Also if Naoko owns a copy of Toonmaker :usagi:. :booze:

That's very tragic to hear what happened with Naoko. :blue:

I'd say it's very likely she would have received a copy back when it was made. Whether she still has it or not is another matter.
