I went on a small trip at the beginning of the year. My Dormy Inn was way too amazing! I want to stay there again even if it’s not a trip.

Ichigoki’s Under Control

I haven’t had a health check in over ten years. It’s scary when my lungs start hurting. Scary!!

I was watching a macho show when a substantial additional amount and quality of macho showed up. I was scared.

It’s freezing today! I hope it’s warmer when you’re reading this. Enjoy chapter 11!

Hajime Komoto


All the shows with Kusanagi-kun are great!!! Yay!!!

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


If you compare Takauji’s and Tadayoshi’s writing, the difference in their personalities is clear. Words do reveal the person.

Fabricant 100

I went to my friend’s wedding. It was my first time seeing people in a while, and it made me very nervous how big humans are.

Cipher Academy


Starting my 21st year as a writer with a chapter that celebrates my life as a Jump fan is a dream come true!

My daughter says dakko (pick me up) like daccho, and it’s so cute. And each time I’m sad about how weak I am.

Tokyo Demon Bride Story
Tadaichi Nakama


What should I do if the braids on the Travis Scott in my house grow like a scary Japanese doll?

Mapollo 3


When I evolve, I’d be able to stick to another Magnemite, so I think Magnemite is the best after all!

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


I’ve been melting curry roux in the microwave and then just drinking it as soup. Delish.

Ginka & Glüna

I don’t like the cold, but I love staying in the house on cold days. Rainy days too.
