Quote of the Week #8

“Why do we have to work? I just want to sleep and eat. I should have been born as a panda in a zoo!”

– Hiramaru Kazuya, Bakuman.

Excessive explanation of the featured image included below!

The character in the featured image is actually Yoshida Kouji, Hiramaru’s editor, accompanied by the ever-demonic Kyuubey (from Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica). What he’s saying is “Boku to keiyaku shite, mangaka ni natte hoshiin da,” which is a play on Kyuubey’s line when trying to get Madoka and Sayaka to become magical girls – in English, Kyuubey’s line is “I want you to make a contract with me and become magical girls!” The lines are mostly the same, except Kyuubey said mahou shoujo where Yoshida says mangakaMahou shoujo = magical girl, and mangaka = manga author/artist.
