Reflections that the mangakas shared about their works, daily life or random things in Weekly Shonen Jump #40 of 2019.
My Hero Academia – Kohei Horikoshi
I was waiting for a call at night when my phone suddenly broke. I rushed to the Docomo store and was given a replacement phone two minutes before closing time.
One Piece – Eiichiro Oda
Mewtwo Raid Time is Coming on 9/17 (Japan Time)! With a shiny variant! Please don’t look for me.
Dr. STONE – Riichiro Inagaki
ACG’s Dr. STONE exhibit was amazing! I want to ride the Izu Hakone train that has Dr. STONE advertising!
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Koyoharu Gotoge
Thank you all for sending me gifts and letters of encouragement! Yes help! I will continue working hard!
Mitama Security: Spirit Busters – Tsurun Hatomune
I don’t know what this means, but I want to draw a manga that’s like Othello with rainbow colors.
Chainsaw Man – Tatsuki Fujimoto
The pears were delicious! And the peaches were delicious too!
Mission: Yozakura Family – Hitsuji Gondaira
Kaldi’s cold brew coffee is so good! I’m drinking it like crazy like it’s barley tea. Maybe that’s why I can’t sleep.
The Promised Neverland – Kaiu Shirai
At the end I was calling the Promised Neverland’s special phone number. Thank you for this wonderful project!
Haikyu!! – Haruichi Furudate
I’ve been drawing while standing recently, but I was doing such a firm stance that I hurt my pinky.
Black Clover – Yuki Tabata
My childhood friend came to see the baby while he was on a business trip. She had barely changed, and it brought back so many memories!
We Never Learn – Taishi Tsutsui
During summer vacation, I went to the hot springs and an amusement park to revitalize myself! I’m full of energy and ready to draw manga!
ACT-AGE – Shiro Usazaki
I just got extra bookshelves, but I’m already considering getting even more. It happens, right?
Jujutsu Kaisen – Gege Akutami
Tenjo tenge yuiga dokuson (“In all heaven and earth, I alone am the righteous one”) seems to have various connotations, but I like to use it in the arrogant sense of the phrase.
Yui Kamio Lets Loose – Hiroshi Shiibashi
I went to the pool. All I did was float, but I’m exhausted! The power of the sun. And now summer is over.
Double Taisei – Kentaro Fukuda
Butterflies and moths. Design-wise, I prefer moths. I like Battra in its larval form more than its adult insect form.
Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru – Masashi Kishimoto
My left leg has been going numb lately. I wonder why. I don’t really want to, but I guess I’ll go see the doctor…
Beast Children – Kento Terasaka
The Rugby World Cup is starting soon! I’m super excited! Go to Japan!
Tokyo Shinobi Squad – Kento Matsuura
I was hanging out with the lady I met recently at Bento’s place. It’s fun to talk to new people.Source:
