Interview with the editor-in-chief of Ikki

ICv2 has an interview with Hideki Egami, the editor-in-chief of Ikki.

It's brief and not particularly shocking, but a quick little read with at least one interesting/amusing/vague metaphor:
At the time I founded Ikki, my boss said, ‘For Spirits, you have to see the ocean to see the audience and readers, and so capture the needs of the audience, but for Ikki you have to see the spring where the river originates,’ meaning that you have to look at the creators and then capture the creators’ passion. You know, don’t look at readers, but start from the creators. So that’s probably the key point, the focal point of Ikki and that’s really the uniqueness of Ikki: it focuses on the passion of the creators.
Worth checking out for the couple minutes it takes to read.
