Ikemoto-sensei responded this way when asked how the working relationship with Kodachi-sensei:
“In reality we are not much in contact. We do not trade, not even email. We met for the first time a year ago (considering that this interview is 2019, and the manga version of Boruto began in 2016, the two authors met in the manga already routed, no.d.r.). Also we are not meeting and you are the editor or mediator between my message and his, and vice versa. Usually my meetings are held exclusively with my editor.“
Listening to these words by the designer, Ikemoto responds this way when asked if he / she receives, or less, of directives for the management of the story:
“I speak directly with my editor. As regards the more elaborate details I usually have free choice about how to describe the whole. I do draw the name (the draft illustrations, and storyboards) and the master, Kodachi the controls. If there are issues I will be transmitted by the editor. If there are none, then I proceed. I think that the way things flow more quickly“.
