One Piece
Eiichiro Oda


I’m a bit late, but I saw Earwig and the Witch. Isn’t Aya cute? What a great anime.

Kenta Shinohara


While doing this week’s pages, I kept muttering, “Well, I don’t know…”

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


I was talking to a friend on voice chat while working on my manga, and suddenly half the day went by.

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I watched Spider-Man! I never thought my favorite movie of all time would change at my age.

Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami

I recommended an artist without checking the news first. Sorry.

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


I’m loving salmon lately. Love the one with lots of fat. I’m a guy who’ll take fish over meat.

Doron Dororon
Gen Oosuka


My mom sent me candied sweet potatoes again. They are covered in chocolate and delicious.

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


I’ve been enjoying the 9 p.m. Monday drama Mystery to Iu Nakare. Masaki Suda’s acting is great!

Riichiro Inagaki


I wanted to go to the moon for research purposes, but unfortunately I was too busy.

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

MM_yozakura Gondaira V2

Lately I’ve been obsessive about checking whether my windows and doors are locked. Why am I so anxious?

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I want to give New Year’s money to Tozuka Sensei’s relative’s kids too. That’s how much that comment cheered me up.

Hajime Komoto


It’s really cold, so I hope it warms up soon. But I do appreciate the four seasons. Yeah!

Black Clover
Yūki Tabata

I sometimes accidentally call my wife “chahan”(fried rice). It’s not what you think! Her name is very similar.

Mapollo 3


I heard Ursaring is also in Arceus, so I’m overjoyed! I also like Cyndaquil.

Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I just learned that the blue in the French flag changed three years ago. I’ve referred to it without even knowing.

Yuji Kaku


I spent two hours thinking about what to write here.

Ayakashi Triangle
Kentaro Yabuki


The town in Kochi that I grew up in is going to be cleared out for redevelopment. How sad.

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

MM_Undeadunluck Tozuka

Umenuki’s “Char’s Counterattack” from Komakasugite Tsutawarani Kaku-ge Monomane Senshuken is great no matter how many times I watch it!

Magu-chan: God of Destruction
Kei Kamiki


I’d be overjoyed if someone felt that this was a good manga. I’ll see you in Jump Giga.

Protect Me, Shugomaru!
Daiki Ihara


Thank you so much, HIKAKIN-san. Thank you!!

Seraph of the End
Takaya Kagami

I don’t think anyone in the world has had more refills than me at the Renoir coffee shop.

Twin Star Exorcist
Yoshiaki Sukeno

MM_Twin Stars Sukeno

I’ve been doodling in a croquis sketchbook like I used to. I feel like I’ve returned to my youth.

Show-ha Shoten
Takeshi Obata

MM_Platinum End Obata

Some books I had piled up were confused for garbage and taken away by someone. Not good!

World Trigger
Daisuke Ashihara

The third season of the anime is now over. Thank you for watching it. Great work by the staff and actors!
