Author's Comment[]

Volume 003.1 Intro Image

When I was little, I'd wake up every morning, run to the calendar and wait for my mom. We never had enough paper, so when mom would rip each day's page off the calendar, I'd use it to draw. One day of each month was marked by an extra-large page, which meant a jumbo-sized drawing!

I have a series in Jump getting a graphic novel release. But I don't credit for that— I chalk it up to the power of manga. To that five-year-old with nothing more than calendar pages to draw on, Jump shone bright as a beacon telling me that I too could become a mangaka someday.

I may be the writer, but I can't do any of this on my own. This series is the product of a lot of hard work from a lot of people.

Senku starts gathering his own group of friends in this volume, and with their help, he's able to create all sorts of things.

The picture above is my attempt to make a certain one of those things. It tasted, let's just say... interesting!
