Yorozu’s face hadn’t changed, so she couldn’t repair her flesh by resuming transformation.

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


I love using ice to make a drink really cold. It goes down so easy!

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I was thinking how manga is great because you don’t need electricity to read it. My phone ran out of battery while I was out.

Yoshihiko Hayashi


I want to freeze my joy and preserve it! Then when I get sad, I can microwave it for a minute at 500 watts.

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


Jumputi is doing a Sakamoto Days collab! I’m really tempted to try and roll for Osaragi.

Takeru Hokazono


The convenience store food sides I eat every third day were out of stock again! I can’t survive.

Kenta Shinohara


My daughter in second grade has started creating manga with her friend. She says she’s on art duty and that the storyboards are really hard.

Kill Blue
Tadatoshi Fujimaki


When I get the mixed-sandwich set from the convenience store, I eat them in the order of ham-lettuce, tuna, egg.

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

I ordered clam onigiri from Bokoi Meshi Hompo in Muroran. They’re really good.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I went to the Yomiuri Giants game. Even though it was in the Tokyo Dome, the Chunichi fans were so amazingly passionate!

Nue’s Exorcist
Kota Kawae


I got some health tea from the convenience store. It wasn’t too bitter, and I think it’ll improve my health.

Cipher Academy


Volume 4 comes out 10/4 in Japan! The cipher poster that’s included is beautiful!
