Volume 011.1 Intro Image.png

I love thinking about Ishigami Village. The fact that it's been around for 3,700 years makes it the longest-lasting civilization in history. I'm gradually trying to imbue the village and its people with that sense of history. I have a lot of respect for them.

The ropes around their waists mark them as villagers, and even animals can become official members of the village if they wear a piece of rope.

Red string is woven into those ropes to symbolize that person's role in the village. I believe Senku will receive his own rope someday.

The image above is a gift of "rope" I've gotten from fans. I don't think I'm worthy of that sort of love and respect, but I'll keep working hard!

When I receive these gifts, it feels like we're all part of the same village.

I attended a bread-making class where we got to knead our own dough and bake it ourselves. It was probably the tastiest bread I've ever had!

Since I now have the ability to make bread at home, I'm already thinking about how much fun it'll be to think up my own special flavors for my Inagaki-brand bread!

It seems like a great hobby to have, since you end up with a practical, edible product in the end.
