Honestly, I have many worries, but I will be persistent and work hard so that I can one day hold my head up high. Thank you so much!

Kenta Shinohara


Thank you for all the fan mail. Sorry I cannot reply, but I do read them!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I went fishing for the first time in about a year! I had fun, but I could feel how out of shape I was. Exercise!

Candy Flurry
Santa Mitarashi


Candy Flurry is a lighthearted comedy battle manga. Please give it a chance!

Gege Akutami

I was studying history when I realized that all these people are dead. Talk about spoilers!

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I’m already hyped for the next Venom movie. I’ve been eagerly awaiting the appearance of Carnage!

Chapter 291 had “Magma” instead of “Magna,” and chapter 292 had a kanji mistake in an attack name. These are like “find the differences” level of errors.



I love Inagaki Sensei’s story so much lately that I’m transfixed!

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


My earholes are so big that my earphones are too loose. I can’t hear the low notes at all…

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


My work area has become more like a storage space. I’d really like to clean it up and make it more comfortable. But I’ve been telling myself that for three years.

Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Hajime Komoto


Eating Don Tacos chips makes me feel like I’ve gone to Mexico. I love them!

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


The Chinatsu that Miyazaki Sensei drew for the Roboco chapter in issue 23 was so cute. Thank you so much!

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


When I’m stuck on the story, I get super stressed and my legs start shaking unconsciously like crazy.

Ayakashi Triangle
Kentaro Yabuki


I looked at my comment from two weeks ago and cried. I can keep going thanks to Godzilla S.P.!

Magu-chan: God of Destruction
Kei Kamiki


My favorite Apex Legends character is Bloodhound. I also like Valkyrie. Liking them and being able to use them well are two separate things…

Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin
Ryuhei Tamura


I drew Haebaru’s right hand in chapter 39. I’m sorry. I will fix it in the graphic novels.

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

I’ve been watching Tougo Ishii Sensei’s Jeet Kune Do videos. The one-inch punches are so cool!

Kazusa Inaoka


It took a whole month for me to pick up a notebook that had dropped from my desk. I could have done it in three seconds, but I didn’t.

Nine Dragons’ Ball Parade
Mikiyasu Kamado


“Since when have I had this shirt?!” is what I said before putting it on and heading out. It wasn’t until the evening that I realized it was inside out.
