There are manga that last a long time, and there are manga that last a long time. While series like Dragon Balland Naruto went on for over a decade, their creators eventually brought them in for a landing.

Royal Stumph Appreciation Post

For years, I have appreciated Royal’s work! He is truly a master of fuming, constantly improving and innovating. This post is dedicated to a few of his newer works. Some day I hope to own a piece!

Rowan had surveyed every inch of the apartment within moments of arriving, but he asked as casually as he could, “Where should I sleep?”
