Thank you so much for a full year’s worth of support! I’ll keep working hard!

Lately, I suddenly have a ton of things I want to do…but I have no free time. I’m currently working on a list of things I want to do.

Super Psychic Policeman Chojo
Shun Numa

Mm Chojo Senpai Shun Numa

My new editor said “Dekaranger is cool” and is well-versed in Sentai love.

Kenta Shinohara

Witch Watch Shinohara

I’m way late, but I watched Godzilla Minus One, and it was great. I’m happy when a Japanese movie has a lot of spirit.

One Piece
Eiichiro Oda

One Piece Eiichirooda

Ado-san’s live concert at Shinkoritsu was amazing. The diva’s singing power has only grown after traveling around the world.

Psych House
Omusuke Kobayashi

Mm Psych House Kobayashi

I used Excel for the first time in my life. I was surprised that it copies all the way to the bottom.

Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami

Ju Jutsu Kaisen

I realized that Abarerukun-san is left-handed. I like the episode where they’re in the mountain climbing club and have to poop.

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki

Roboko Miyazaki

I went fishing in Shimane for Golden Week! But it was unusually cold only on the day we went fishing, and I didn’t catch anything. Sad.

Astro Royale
Ken Wakui

Mm Negaino Astro Wakui

I went on a bunch of family vacations between my previous series ending and this series starting.

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki

The dried ham at 7-Eleven is really tasty. It’s in the snack area.

Kyokuto Necromance
Fusai Naba

Mm Kyokuto Necromance Naba

I heard that eating yogurt cures pollen allergies, so every year I start a yogurt diet that ends up not lasting very long.

Yuki Suenaga

Mm Akanebanashi Suenaga

The shows I look forward to every week are Unmet and Delicious in Dungeon. Both are so good!

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui

Mm Tes Matsui

Sorry for needing to take a break. I want to go with a one-break-a-year pace…

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

Yozakura Gondaira V2

Team KoKo and now Shoma. I’m so sad that I’m in a daze. Sigh… But thank you for all the amazing performances!

Kill Blue
Tadatoshi Fujimaki

Mm Kill Blue Tadatoshi Fujimaki

The main character is supposed to have a fountain pen in his shirt pocket that represents his lover, but I always forget to draw it.

Takeru Hokazono

Mm Kagurabachi Takeru Hokazono

I went out for Golden Week and caught COVID. I can’t stop coughing. Dammit!

Green Green Greens
Kento Terasaka

Mm Greengreengreens Kentateresaka

I tried Classic controls on SF6 but am struggling because I keep trying to use Modern. Maybe I need a completely different device.

Dear Anemone
Rin Matsui

Mm Dear Anemone Rin Matsui

My friends while I draw are coffee and a rice ball. I get excited when the convenience store nearby has new items.
