Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


I’m out of shape, so I recently started doing some exercises that I can do at home. I almost threw up.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


The one-shot in this week’s Japanese issue was done by my assistant Ashigaki. I’d be so happy if you would read it.

Ayakashi Triangle
Kentaro Yabuki


This curveball of a series has reached its one-year anniversary! Thank you so much for all the support!

Riichiro Inagaki


On Earth, you can pretty much only get niobium in Araxá. That’s why Senku and the others are there.

One Piece
Eiichiro Oda


The small figurines that are currently being designed behind the scenes are amazing! What kind of technique is this?!

Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami

I’ll be taking a short break. There will be additional information online, so please check that out too.

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I often make mistakes with button placement for men and women, so just assume the clothes are unisex.

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


I’ve been hooked on Mo’some Tonebender ever since my editor recommended the band.

Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Hajime Komoto


I’ve lost four kilograms from my heaviest weight! I’m the bessssssst!!!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I don’t have time to go out and get my hair cut, so I’ve been thinking about doing it myself. Just like Ashitaka.

Candy Flurry
Ippon Takegushi


The convenience store in my neighborhood has upped the pulpiness of its orange juice. I’m so glad!

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

MM_yozakura Gondaira V2

Cleaning silver with baking soda, aluminum foil, and hot water is so much fun!

Magu-chan: God of Destruction
Kei Kamiki


I love video games, but I’m actually terrible at them. My favorite console is the Wii.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


Judging the Jump New World Manga Award was pretty tough, and I ended up spending the whole day mulling things over.

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

MM_Undeadunluck Tozuka

I finished eating all the Valentine’s Day chocolate I received. It was so delicious that I can’t go back to regular chocolate.

Kenta Shinohara


Drawing the characters takes five days no matter what I do. And the storyboards take two and a half days. The math doesn’t add up.

Nine Dragons’ Ball Parade
Ashibi Fukui


I’m getting through each day with carbonated water and diet cola.

Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin
Ryuhei Tamura


So Virtua Fighter is finally out on the PS4. Can’t wait to play it after finishing this week’s chapter!

Kazusa Inaoka


My hometown community center had this statue of a seal (I think?) that I was scared of as a kid.
