I The hour-long videos consist of Tarue modeling a white martial arts gi while live streaming the hands literally every day until the manga starts publishing again.
«I’m glad the series is coming back, but sad that this is almost over», wrote the YouTuber after more than two years of making his daily publications. Below is his latest video and the post in question.
