金色のガッシュ / Konjiki no Gash (also “Zatch Bell”) mangaka 雷句誠 / Makoto Raiku has demanded compensation to the tune of ¥3,300,000.

Infuriated over publisher Shogakukan having managed to lose an important original manuscript, 金色のガッシュ / Konjiki no Gash (also “Zatch Bell”) mangaka 雷句誠 / Makoto Raiku has demanded compensation to the tune of ¥3,300,000.

Apparently, after the manga finished serialisation, the publisher returned the orginal manuscripts, but some colour pages were missing; the author is basing his claim on the artistic value of the lost pages. Shogakukan for their part have made the terse statement “We shall deal with the petition properly as soon as it is received”.
