ok but lets be real here…who fucking sat down…and said, “I’m going to take these well-respected authors that have made impact on history as we know it. And I’m going to make it a manga where they have super powers. One of them is going to be a detective which makes sense since he wrote detective novels. A few others are going to be detectives too. And then there’s going to be a mafia. Other well-respected authors are going to be in this mafia. And we’re gonna throw in some American authors, too, who will come flying in on a mechanical whale. And then there’s gonna be a war. Oh yeah and they’re all going to be hot and gay.”
