Pretentious? Eh... ok, that is fine by me. In fact, supporting and actually reading the mangaka's works seems to still be better to me than jumping to vapid conclusions after 1/147 chapters. :/

Glad you enjoyed the title he's written for an erotic magazine.

You're always good for a laugh and prone to the bandwagon effect like no other, sunfukung. Keep stating your "facts".

Oh, and I quite like Asano and his works that focus on the pessimistic aspects of life. But unlike you, I also read and bought most of his titles.

one chapter enough to know that this man is the GOAT
