Seriously one of my favorite authors yet. His writing is so crisp and I think the English translations of his work must really do them justice; I never get tired of any of his stories, no matter how grotesque. I wish MAL had his actual novels listed, though.

Porque en myanimelist solo están los mangas basados en sus novelas y no las novelas ligeras mismas?

Because in myanimelist there are only sleeves based on his novels and not the light novels themselves?

His JJBA novel adaptation was really good!

I have his own room into my mind.

A Gun and Chocolate isn't listed here. I just ordered the French translation, as there either isn't an English one or it's unavailable.

No. It's more like the short stories he'd written were adapted by mangaka into manga.

A manga creator with only short stories? :(
