Oh wow, my old pal Takahashi Meijin has a web site and a blog which he seems to update regularly: http://www.hudson.co.jp/16shot/. I wish I wasn't so illiterate in Japanese so I could read it. And I have got to order one of his T-Shirts.
If you don't know who Takahashi Meijin is, he's the main character in the classic NES Adventure Island video games produced by Hudson Soft. He was mega famous in Japan during the 8-bit gaming days. In the US versions of the games, his character was known as Master Higgins.
