Just walking my dog makes me feel great. The fall season is the best! I even like the slightly sad feeling.

I’ve been enjoying hayashi rice lately. Sorry for thinking you were fake curry rice all these years.

I just learned about the Anima Gear toys. They’ve reminded me of the days I was super into Bio Puzzler, and now I’m hyped!

My brother and his wife had a baby! Sorry for the late congratulations. And nice to meet you, niece.

I’ve been wearing my high school gym clothes at home this whole time, but they’re finally starting to get some holes in them…

I forgot to draw Billy and the others on the round table at the end of last chapter. Sorry! They’re there!

Phantom Seer

I’ve switched to working digitally since my last series. I want to cry whenever the software crashes.

Ayakashi Triangle
Kentaro Yabuki


I’m adding 30 bonus pages for the bunko release of To Love Ru Darkness. I’m currently drawing sexiness escalated to the ultimate level!

Our Blood Oath
Kazu Kakazu 


I used to think staying up late to work was admirable. But making sure you have a good night’s sleep is more admirable…

We Never Learn
Taishi Tsutsui


I bit the inside of my cheek really hard, and I’m currently suffering from a major mouth sore. It’s swollen, so I bite it more—it’s an infinite loop of pain.

Magu-chan: God of Destruction
Kei Kamiki


My favorite hunting weapon is the lance. My favorite monster is Zamtrios.

Hard-Boiled Cop and Dolphin
Ryuhei Tamura


I need a name for the phenomenon where you drop your phone, but as you try to grab it in midair you end up slamming it to the ground harder.

Volume 3 is now on sale in Japan! With each new volume release, I can’t help but want to add more and more bonus pages.
