NyanBazWhen did you first get involved with puzzles?
NyanBazWhat kind of puzzle book was it?
NyanBazWas that also how you got to know Nikoli?
NyanBazWhat was it that made you begin contributing?
NyanBazHmm, simple as that! Your first printed puzzle was Numberlink, do you like Numberlink.
NyanBazI want to ask you some questions about now. How many puzzles do you make?
NyanBazDo you spend lots of time to create a puzzle?
NyanBazYou are making a lot of Sudoku recently. What is the reason for that?
NyanBazReally. Because more Sudoku puzzles could be published. Your Sudoku has a lot of starting numbers. Is that on purpose?
NyanBazWell, there are some who have exactly the opposite approach. Personal preferences are just that. We are looking for variety in the types of puzzles. Either approach is fine, everybody can relax and get on. Then, you are known as an expert in quick solving. When did you discover you were really fast?
NyanBazReally? You are just so fast. I'm amazed to hear that you are not really aware of that. Are you training to solve fast?
NyanBazThe third place! You're perfectly marvelous. I have seen you solve puzzles on a PC. You miss a lot. But you quickly fix the mistakes and you are still fast. It's amazing to me.
NyanBazYou are particular. Is there a secret to solve fast?
NyanBazHmmm. Is that really instructive? You have many other hobbies. Trying out standing-only noodle shops, walking to see the sights of Tokyo, and there is more.
NyanBazSure, but really. You even have a WEB site where you have published a record of your standing-only noodle shop experiences.
NyanBazHow many standing-only noodle shops have you been to so far?
NyanBazBack to puzzles. What is a puzzle to you?
NyanBazNow the last question, anything that you want to tell people solving your puzzles?
