Raiku’s Tale: The Editors from Hell

Zatch Bell / Konjiki no Gash Bell

Konjiki no Gash creator 雷句誠 / Makoto Raiku brings a series of scandalous allegations regarding the conduct of his editors to light, as if his last were not severe enough. Shonen Sunday magazine and publisher Shogakukan, coincidentally also in trouble with the ending of one of their major series, and also having abused a somewhat charismatic lady mangaka, seems set to have its reputation utterly destroyed. In an interview with Raiku the details emerge in lurid detail, and the full story is provided below.

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”.
