His image had changed since the beginning of the story.He didn't know what amor was until he found Miaka,it was in that moment when he first felt that kind of feeling...she was his first love! Before I became a mangaka, when I was 18 years old,at the time of "Heart ni Houseki", I used to draw Tamahome. When I found that notebook,the character reborned after so long.
He's a guy hard to describe and por the other hand he seems to be a young sad boy with issues. His image is the one of a strong but fragil guy. por protecting someone,he also protects himself.
Tamahome makes you feel like hugging him...why would it be?

His kansai dialect is very funny. I wanted a character who was different to the others. I designed him having in consideration the concept of savage,because it didn't have too much sense that he was only different to Tama and Hori.I changed the design 3 times before I got to this one. The first one had a completely different personality and he was friend of Tamahome since childhood.Between being a bandid, a regular civilian, emperor, monk, doctor,etc, I wanted for him to be mais outstanding.Part of that is based on the book "Suikoden" and his fã comes from the book "Saiyuki" because it just came up to me while talking about Oosaka,hahaha. Although you can't see it, Tasuki run very fast.When he first appeared,he kidnapped Miaka,right? He has a lot of strength and knows how to fight.He's not like the rest of the constellations that only have one ability,he have the hole package.
