The anime starts this Saturday! I can’t wait! Let’s all watch it together!

Me & Roboco
Shuhei Miyazaki


It’s been two weeks since I stopped drinking. The goal is three months! After that I plan to learn about moderation.

Mashle: Magic and Muscles
Hajime Komoto


How interesting is it that there’s a tenfold difference in effectiveness between active learning and passive learning? Humans sure are interesting!

Sakamoto Days
Yuto Suzuki


It takes me over an hour to find the perfect background music for work, so by the time I start, I’m already tired.

One Piece
Eiichiro Oda


The portion of the RED movie connected to the anime is now on YouTube. You’ll understand Luffy’s thought process.

Blue Box
Kouji Miura


A bunch of my friends went to Okinawa, and I’m experiencing it through the gifts they brought back. I want to go to Okinawa too.

Jujutsu Kaisen
Gege Akutami

I didn’t listen closely to the point system for U-NEXT, so I was being stingy where I didn’t need to be.

Tokyo Demon Bride Story
Tadaichi Nakama


They were airing a show called Gachiri Monday on Sunday, and I really panicked.

Takamasa Moue


I like guinea pigs, so I eagerly await each episode of Pui Pui Molcar.

Shinpei Watanabe


Thank you to everyone who read chapter 1 and gave me feedback!! I’m so glad so many people read it.

High School Family: Kokosei Kazoku

I bought a timer and have been measuring the time it takes me to work. As expected, I’m slow.

Kenta Shinohara


My kids have finally started watching the Sket Dance anime. I’m so happy that it seems like they’re enjoying it.

The Elusive Samurai
Yusei Matsui


Feels like the kanji change function on phones and PCs is getting worse every year. Shouldn’t it be advancing…?

Mission: Yozakura Family
Hitsuji Gondaira

MM_yozakura Gondaira V2

On the stone path at night, I fall hard and scrape my hands and feet. The pain, bad. The embarrassment, much worse.

Mapollo 3


Thank you for this past year! I’m so happy!

Undead Unluck
Yoshifumi Tozuka

MM_Undeadunluck Tozuka

I started playing Pokémon GO! I’ve been asking my senpai (my dad) what I don’t know!

Aliens Area

Everyone’s saying they want to play Splatoon 3. Meanwhile, summer is ending and I haven’t finished Elden Ring yet.

I had this parfait thing that I’ve rarely eaten. It was good.
