Just as I was struggling with the characters looking alike, Maki, who has the same face, arrives. Sukuna reunion mode continues.

Yuki Suenaga


I watched the movies RRR and Blue Giant. You need to see both of them! Awesome!

The Ichinose Family’s Deadly Sins


Volume 1 is now on sale in Japan! There’s bonus material! Please check it out!

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


I listen to a lot of Kamaitchi’s radio and YouTube while I work. So interesting.

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


The felt doll of a female citizen that I received from a fan was almost attacked by my cat. That was close!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I want to start playing table tennis! I’d like to join somewhere I can play once a week, but what fantasy am I living in?

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


I’ve watched Boys Planet up to episode 3. My favorite is Zhang Hao. Please remember him!

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

I remember getting more excited over the conductor’s bathing scene than Maetel’s. A combination of romance and fear.

Kenta Shinohara


I love the BBC show Sherlock and rewatch it from time to time. Wish they’d make new episodes.

Black Clover
Yūki Tabata

The Black Clover movie has been delayed… To everyone who was looking forward to it, please join me in waiting just a little longer.

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

My favorite dish at CoCoIchi is the grandmother curry. I’d really like to eat it this year.

Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Hajime Komoto


I forgot to add the name and address to an important document I was mailing out. How ditzy can one be?!

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I feel like I’m finally used to the pace of serialization. It took a really long time with this series…

Cipher Academy


I watched Quantumania. The first MCU movie I saw was Ant-Man, so the feeling of immersion was at max!

Fabricant 100
Daisuke Enoshima


When I first got a cat, I felt that animals really couldn’t understand words. Now my cat and I can read each other’s minds.

Ginka & Glüna
Shinpei Watanabe


I saw the Buzz Lightyear movie. The blue part of his head wasn’t hair?!

Tokyo Demon Bride Story
Tadaichi Nakama


Seems like nowadays would be a good time to reread the episode about mansions in BLAST Public Discussions.

Ichigoki’s Under Control
Seiji Hayashi


It’s such a cruel system that you need to go to the gym in order to cancel the gym membership that you no longer use.

Show-ha Shoten!  
Akinari Asakura


I’m heading to Osaka this week. I’m so excited, as if it’s a school trip!

World Trigger
Daisuke Ashihara

I’m two months late, but thank you for all the New Year’s cards. And all the fan mail that’s delivered every month as well. It means so much.

Seraph of the End
Yamato Yamamoto

MM_Seraph Yamamoto

The Seraph of the End ten-year anniversary exhibit is opening this month.

Twin Star Exorcist

I heard it was good for your health, so I’ve been sleeping in a fundoshi lately.
