Ichigoki’s Under Control!!
Seiji Hayashi


Thank you so much for the serialization! I’d be so happy if you could give it a read!

Cipher Academy


I had my editor check over the lunch-ticket machine, and there were a “dot” of corrections. This code’s creation difficulty is four stars!

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


Lately the only thing I can talk about is my move. I had such a sense of relief when I got my internet up.

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


The anime series starts next week! It’s late at night and short, so I’ll have to be careful not to miss it. Check it out!

I’m late in mentioning this, but I wrote a recommendation for the bellybands of Sakamoto and Kokuhaku. Please look for them in bookstores!

Yuki Suenaga


I checked out the Hakata Tenjin Rakugo Festival for research purposes. The koza were all so great! I want to go back next year.

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


Aged, raw, farm to table, natural, plump. All words that sound delicious!

Kenta Shinohara


I was told about a reprint order but was surprised it was for Astra. I’m so happy!

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I went to Shueisha for the first time in a while. I got to talk to a lot of people and had fun.

Cold days are continuing, so please take care not to catch a cold. And please check out chapter 3.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I put some seasoning on bean sprouts from the convenience store and microwave them for three minutes. That’s all I eat these days while I’m working.

Ginka & Glüna

I grilled and ate a saury. It’s so weird how many delicious things there are in nature.

Opening the window and then flopping over next to it is chilly and exciting, and it feels good.
