Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


My assistant Ayuhara has a one-shot called “Bakuhastu-man” running in JUMP SQ Rise. Check it out!

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I returned a crossbow that I had bought. I thought it would help as reference material, but I didn’t use it at all.

Kenta Shinohara


My PC speakers broke, so I replaced them with Bose ones, and the sound is great!

Mapollo 3


I captured a bunch of Solosis because they’re cute, but I keep thinking they look tasty, like gummies.

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


I had a great time during Golden Week, but now I want a week to rest. And time to clean my room.

Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami

I messed up and put “x 1” for the boost in effect. That might be the most pointless error in the world.

Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I had to be admitted to the hospital for the removal of a small polyp. Losing three days and two nights of time during serialization is rough.

Super Smartphone
Kentaro Hidano

I've been friends with Doron Dororon’s Oosuka since my student days. We’re in Jump together! I’m so happy!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


Campfires are fun even when you’re by yourself, so I recommend it. But always be careful!

Yuki Suenaga


I should not have gone to see that without seeing WandaVision first. I’m filled with nothing but regret.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


I try to go as long as possible without using the AC, but it’s already getting hot, so it seems like it’s gonna be tough this year.

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

I went for a walk by the river by my house, and there were a lot of softshell turtles. I wonder if they’re edible.

Hajime Komoto


I want to be able to throw a baseball 140 km/h before I die. I feel like I still have time, so I’m going to get buff.

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

MM_Undeadunluck Tozuka

My molar was hurting, so I assumed I had a cavity. Turns out it was cracked. No wonder I was in pain!

Hideo Shinkai


I suddenly thought about Jungle Smile and searched for their music in my subscription services, and it was there. I love this system.

Doron Dororon
Gen Oosuka


Even if I’m tired, hearing the Anpanman song gives me energy. What a wonderful song.

Yuji Kaku


I went to the Tokyo Racecourse. It has my first-time experiencing horse racing, but it was a lot of fun, and the facilities were great.

Protect Me, Shugomaru!
Daiki Ihara


Line I Want Said to Me #13: “Sorry, my two friends couldn’t make it. It’ll just be…the two of us.”
