assistant mangaka

Clearly, a favorite assistant.


(A note: gay bars of this particular type (”okama bars”) in Japan are pretty popular with straight people, and sometimes even called “tourist bars” (where straight people come to be entertained by gay people). They are staffed by gay men, cross-dressing gay men, and sometimes transgender women (that’s… rare though), and don’t necessarily cater to a gay clientele. This type of bar often functions same as a host club.)

  • Assistant: ...Alright... and this one?
  • Araki: Dio... but from an alternate universe.
  • Assistant: But-
  • Araki: IT'S DIO OK FUCK YOU I DO WHAT I WANT IT'S DIO
