I’m so happy for the anime! It’s thanks to all of you who supported me! I can’t wait!

Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


The one-shot in the Japanese issue is from my assistant Kawaguchi. He’s got monstrous potential, so I hope it’s a success!

The Torisoboro bowl at Sukiya is high in protein and low in fat, so I recommend it for those on a diet.

Mapollo 3


I enjoy chugging green tea after eating something salty. It’s delicious!

One Piece
Eichiro Oda


I get emotional over the transition from “Tomorrow Never Knows” to “Fanfare.” Congratulations on 30 years, Mr. Children!

Am I the only one who can’t remember if I’ve used conditioner after shampooing each day?

I saw the movie Bubble! The parkour scene was awesome! It all made sense when I found out it was by the Shingeki team.

I thought my fave in Le Sserafim was gonna be Kirin-chan, but Kazuha-chan is good too…
