Manga fascination lead to studying Japanese in Japan

"Studying the Japanese language actually came as a
consequence of my love for manga.
I wanted to become a cartoonist,
but there was no market in Italy at that time.
So my first logical thought was,
"Of course I'm going to study Japanese
to live in Japan and draw manga.
