Meanwhile, Gege Akutami, the author of Jujutsu Kaisen, wrote a comment that was featured in the volume, praising the author of MamaYuyu, Yoshihiko Hayashi, saying that Hayashi has good taste in writing good stories and the series will be a game changer for Shonen Jump.
“This is what it means to have good taste!! I think Hayashi sensei is the turning point for Jump!!”
Gege has also drawn Minerva, a major supporting character, to promote the release of Volume-1 of the series.
