The date of the meeting, mixing up negating and annihilating for Angel’s ability… So many errors.

Kenta Shinohara


For some reason I’m into polishing my nails. I become mesmerized seeing them so shiny. Am I mentally exhausted?

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


The Jump Manga Award account is amazing. So many resources. I wish I’d had it when I was a student.

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


Reading makes me sleepy, so I’ve started reading whenever I’m ready for bed. I’m reading the same part of the book every night.

Yuki Suenaga


I’m way behind, but I started watching Violet Evergarden. It’s great!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


My sister had a baby! You were so strong through all the pain. I was amazed! Congrats!

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


Lately I’m watching a lot of hoof-trimming videos. We’re so blessed to live in an era where we can watch stuff like this so easily.

Ginka & Glüna
Shinpei Watanabe


My current editor gave me salmon roe, and my previous editor gave me grapes. Both are round and squishy!

Hunter x Hunter
Yoshihiro Togashi


I just want to draw the final pages, but I just want to draw the final pages, but I just want to draw the final pages…

The eye-patch Koopa is really cool. It seems to peak from the eye patch, so it’s just for fashion, huh?

My dad, who used to be a backpacker, told me about how packs in the seventies had pipe frames.

My daughter was safely released from the hospital, but then I had to go in to get my wisdom teeth removed. I’m a happy but suffering dad.

I dreamed that meteorites were falling from the sky, but I survived by ducking and covering.
