The Ichinose Family’s Deadly Sins


So honored to be in Jump! Thank you for the opportunity. I’d be very happy if you’d give my series a read!

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


If there were glasses that let you see ghosts, I’d want a pair. I want to see them from far away, so hopefully they’d be prescription glasses.

Kenta Shinohara


I went into the Shueisha office for a meeting and ran into a bunch of editors I hadn’t seen in a long time.

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I messed up on the final question for the escape game. I’m so sorry to those of you who were seriously trying to solve it!

Yuki Suenaga


Extraordinary Attorney Woo is so great! I want to watch a bunch of Korean dramas, but I don’t have the time…

One Piece
Eiichiro Oda


I bought a new barbecue gas stove, and I’m currently training in the art of cooking meat with convective heat transfer. I can’t wait to feed everyone!

Blue Box

The cookie cream puffs at 7-Eleven are so good. There’s nothing better than eating them in a warm room.

I thought I was eating an Umaibo snack, but when I opened it, it was a fugashi snack, and I got disappointed. But then I ate it, and it was good.

I’m looking forward to the Rizin Fighting event at the end of the year. Good luck, Kleber!

Congrats to Kana Muramoto and Daisuke Takahashi for winning! I’m sure Denis Ten would have been overjoyed to see it.

I want to rename fruits that have the name of other fruits in it, like grapefruit.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


For my health, I’m living the kind of elderly lifestyle where you go for a 15-minute walk with the sunrise.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I lost the setting on the brush that I had adjusted a bunch of times and gotten used to. The feel of my pen totally changed...

Tokyo Demon Bride Story
Tadaichi Nakama


I want to see my friends, but I’m so busy that now they’ve started appearing in my dreams…

Hunter x Hunter

Staff member Tanehana, here. It sure is getting cold. Everyone, please take good care of your health.

I want to ride Koraidon and Miraidon! Being able to fly is the best.
