How many "Makoto-chan" are there?

according to the calendar Jan 20 is the coldest day of the winter, 大寒. it was a sunny day but chilled to the bone yesterday. and where did I go?? Look,  a boy waves hands to me on the deck!!! it is well-known house of a master of Manga-ka.He is a  leading character in the popular gag manga "Makoto-chan".actually, the red and white stripes are a Manga-ka's trademark design. I herad that he sold his house in San Francisco few years ago,  and  built this dream home so-called, "Makoto-chan House" in his favorite SF style ( not color ) .how would you  evaluate his design of the house and interior decorating? whole house, you will see Makoto chan and red color stuffs  to ward off evil spirits, according to him.Christmas tree-trimmingon  refrigeratorMakoto-chan& cat eyed boy.more than Makoto-chan, you see  sophisticated decor with his ideas. he began to draw manga when he was in 4th grade. he made the stained-glass based on his first manga drawing. great.The glow of lamp gave the restroom a romantic atmosphere. I seached  the entire house carefully  lol  "Makoto-chan"  is one of his his representative works,but its hard to translatethe fun of japanese gag manga into foreign languages as you know. rather,  漂流教室/ the drifting classroom and his horror mangas become popular overseas. have you ever read them? i used to watch   the television version " Long Love Letter" starring Takako Tokiwa and Yosuke Kubozuka. really liked it. needless to say, his closet is filled with stripe shirtsMaster of manga-ka, Kazuo Umezu, held  a usual pose, "guwashi!!" as I pointed a camera. Umezu sensei  is always cute and friendly with boyish grin.He  celebrated 55  years as a manga-ka last year. When he was invited to Taipei Book Fair performed  " Makoto-chan Ondo". He seemd to be extremely happy to see so many fans in Taiwan. its fun!!Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8keJ1velcCY

I loved "Long Love Letter"! Just the concept is freaky enough to grab my attention! I'll have to look for "The Drifting Classroom", though I probably will find it difficult to locate. Thanks for this blog!
