I’m so honored to get my second cover and front color pages! I’ll continue working hard to entertain all of the readers.

Neru: Way of the Martial Artist
Minya Hiraga


Rearranging my room and setting up all the desks and chairs for my assistants as I prepared for the serialization was rough!

My Hero Academia
Kohei Horikoshi


I grew up being influenced so much by FF9, so I’m hoping for a perfect anime version. Can’t wait!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


I made it to a year! Thank you for all the support. I’ll work hard to get to a two-year anniversary!

Riichiro Inagaki


The multiplication table learning in India depends on the region. Seems like up to 19 x 19 is pretty common.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


I try hard not to use modern words in the series, but there’s just no alternative for "perverted.”

Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Hajime Komoto


I want a break!!! I want to goof off!!!!!!!

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

I want to go see Gundam Hathaway! I want to go see Gundam Hathaway! I want to go see Gundam Hathaway! Ahhh!

The Hunters Guild: Red Hood
Yuki Kawaguchi


The first manga I bought all the volumes of was Neuro. And now I’m in the same magazine as Matsui Sensei. I’m overwhelmed with emotion.

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

I’m emotional over the passion and fetishism of the video featuring Resident Evil 8’s Dimitrescu being attacked with a flyswatter.

Black Clover
Yūki Tabata

My wife has been doing an impression of Mista’s Stand Six Bullets lately. It’s really good!

Sakamoto Days

My favorite YouTuber group is Tokai On Air. What unique and funny characters.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku
Ryo Nakama


This summer I feel like I’m gonna eat a ton of Meiji Super Cups. Because I’m a Puyo Puyo player!

Magu-chan: God of Destruction
Kei Kamiki


Plushies of the mini Magu-chans are nice and bouncy. They should be on sale 7/19 in Japan!

Ayakashi Triangle
Kentaro Yabuki


I’m finishing up work on volume 5, which will come out next month in Japan. The cover is turning out nice! Look forward to it!

Kenta Shinohara


I’ve been rewatching How Do You Like Wednesday? lately. I love when they go to the Yukon.

Candy Flurry

It’s starting to get hot, and lately the stars of my dinner table are soba, somen, and cold Chinese noodles.
