The Characteristics of TYPE O People (November 20, 1997)

My summary from Mr. Masahiko NOMI's book "Ketsueki-gata Josei Hakusho" (Blood Type Woman White Paper).

Personality difference of men and women is almost nonexistent. However, Type O people are strongly concious of sex distinction. A Type-O woman who seems boyish thinks she is a woman after all. On the contraly, if a Type-AB person seems to manly or feminine, s/he seldom considers sex distinctions.
The strength of the consciousness in terms of men and women is the indication of natural nature of Type O. However, Type O personality is *not* primitive but natural. In other words, natural means human. As it is becoming Type A, Type B and Type AB, parting nature little by little and parts human.
A Type-O woman sometimes considered to be not feminine. Because natural difference of personality between men and women is small, but social difference is large. A Type-O person give priority to one's life and action, first of all. Various personality trends of Type O are led from there.
Surprisingly strong reality, those are Type O. Reality gropes the most advantageous actions continually to exist and distinguish plus and minus quickly and be good decisiveness and adopt them.
It becomes purpose-orientated nature of Type O, when this reality take an action. It is the trend that breaks through to the purpose on real life intensively. For example, a purpose to occupation and  jobs, a purpose to seek the opposite sex, especially a purpose to the power. Type-O person does't show zeal, to the purpose that is isolated from life.
When such purpose is nonexistent, a Type-O person gets into awfully unstable mood. If the situation continues so long, s/he becomes like a cat in a sunny place.
Although Type-O person likes romantic expression and such things, it is raising the actual effects that drives s/he to realistic actions. Type-O person has the double personalities, romantic temperament and realistic. But this is very superficial view. A romantic thought usually doesn't become to an action.

I haven't really seen all the above characteristics. But fellow feeling, conciousness of sex distinction, generosity, reality and purpose-orentation are the vivid characteristics.

Famous Japanese Manga Writers (November 23, 1997)

It is Mr. Tsukasa Hojo, after all, that my favorite Type-O manga writer. His most important works: 'City Hunter' and 'Cat's Eye'. Strongly purpose-oriented Ryo Saeba and Cat's Eye's sisters carry through even the most difficult missions.
It looks like Type O that they are concerned with men and women difference. On the contraly, Type ABs virtually don't care about it. Type A maybe says "a man (woman) should be like this or that!"
Like Type O, heroes and heroins show one's emotions directly. But their emotions don't drag on. On the contraly, Type A's emotion does.

Look at Nausicaa and Kiki in 'Majo no Takkyubin'. They are completely Type Os
