Now Shueisha lets you send letters to your favorite mangaka

the digital service Shōnen Jump Plus of Shueisha there is an option “Stay Cards” which can find manga authors in Japan. The tool is available under the information of each manga published on the service (in Japanese of course), showing a red button that reads: “Send fans(Send a Wait Letter)”.

By accessing this function, the user is redirected to a google formwhere you are informed of the following terms and conditions:

  • You can send your comments and messages of support for the work through this form. Shueisha’s editorial department will first review your comments and messages. Please note that we will not always be able to forward your message to the author afterwards. Please note that we will not be able to respond to questions, comments, requests or complaints other than those submitted through this form.

Then it asks for the following fields: “The name of the work“, “Traffic“Y”Approval“. The second refers to the fact that the comments of the fans could be used in promotional materials for the work, for example, a video that collects positive comments for the author. Those interested in participating in this dynamic can do so at any time, but their comments must be in Japanese.

To find the author of your choice, you must take into account that some of his work must be published on the service Shōnen Jump Plus (https://shonenjumpplus.com/search). Take the Japanese name of your work of interest and paste it into the service’s search engine. For example, in this case we are looking for “Boku no Hero Academia“:

Access the manga that matches your search (in our case it’s the second one) and it will open a new window with the latest published chapter. Go down a bit to find the technical sheet of the work and you will find the button mentioned with the option to go to the form.
