Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Hajime Komoto


Catch my heeeaaart very melon! Very melon!!



Manga will become even greater. Let us walk forward looking up not at the lights of the streets, but at the brilliance of the stars.

Kenta Shinohara


I laughed and I cried. I looked forward to reading it every week. Great work on the series, Tamura Sensei.

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


It’s starting to smell like summer! I love getting hit with warmth the moment you leave an air-conditioned room.

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I forgot to fix Yaomomo’s line in volume 29. His name is Tentacole. Sorry.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


With our current circumstances, I’ve just about run out of things to say in this section. I’m not doing anything besides creating manga.

Black Clover
Yūki Tabata

That climax was on fire… Great end to Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin, Tamura Sensei. I want to go to the ocean!

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


I figured I’d have a drink after finishing up the chapter, but I got a headache after drinking a beer. Sad.

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

I’m so happy to be in the same issue as my assistant Segawa Sensei! Please read Kikaijikake no Aioraito!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I play Shogi Wars every day. I like swift attacks, so I prefer when special strategies aren’t used against me.

Ayakashi Triangle
Kentaro Yabuki


They relaunched the Seibuen theme park I’ve been to with my daughter a bunch of times. It’s amazing!

Candy Flurry
Santa Mitarashi


Danshi Tatekawa’s Rakuda is too good. Lately I have it on repeat while I work on the manga pages.

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

MM_Undeadunluck Tozuka

I’ve only been drinking coffee lately, so I tried some tea a fan sent me. It’s really good.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


I gave some drawing supplies to a niece who likes to draw. This old guy feels so fulfilled now.

Magu-chan: God of Destruction
Kei Kamiki


The video showing the making of Magu-chan cookies was amazing. Thank you so much!

i tell c
Kazusa Inaoka


The password in the chapter may be difficult, but it is solvable. Please give it a try when you have some free time.

Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin
Ryuhei Tamura


I came up short. Thank you so much to everyone who supported me till the very end.

Nine Dragons’ Ball Parade
Mikiyasu Kamada


I will become an adult who will be able to stop playing the Shanghai game when it is time to stop. That is my biggest goal in life.
