Why am I so attracted to wasp videos? I’ve learned a lot about wasps recently.

Editor change! Taguchi-san, let’s go eat some meat. Imamura-san, let’s do our best together from now on.

I lost 5 kg by dieting, and now my glasses are loose. I need to go get them adjusted.

My smartphone’s facial-recognition feature worked on my art, and that made me a little happy. Good for you, Yoshioka.

Aliens Area

I make spicy curry every now and then. It feels like it should be good for my body. Health is the most important thing!

Super Smartphone
Kentaro Hidano


I’m still not used to drawing digitally, and I often get stuck on mysterious functions.

Witch Watch
Kenta Shinohara


There’s like 50 restaurants in my neighborhood that I’d like to check out, but I don’t have the time.

The Elusive Samurai

What’s with people who think referencing Steve Jobs in a discussion makes them more convincing?

Feels like I’ve spent at least three days of my life just untangling my earphones!

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

The hundred-days-of-puzzles project is great! You get a puzzle sent to you on LINE every day. I recommend it.

I’m traumatized by Watchog and Excadrill. They kicked my butt. Too scary.

Hitsuji Gondaira

If I’m stuck on something, my editor feeds me Super Soda Gum. Foamy!

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


The High School Family volume 6 advertisement video in Japan is so cool that I couldn’t help but laugh. It’s great!

Hideo Shinkai


I’ve been writing the complicated "disclosure" kanji for the chapter titles every week by hand, and now I can write it without looking.

Doron Dororon
Gen Oosuka


The Dyson vacuum cleaner is so convenient! But I don’t have the hand-strength to hold it for very long…
