It's pretty much a given that manga creators never get enough sleep time, especially those with a weekly serialization show. This fact was reaffirmed once again earlier today when Blue Lock manga illustrator Yuusuke Nomura shared a screenshot of his iPhone's health app, specifically of his sleeping patterns (or rather the lack of it). ) taken through your Apple Watch.
“I have been watching the sleep tracker app since I started using my Apple Watch, but my bedtime is too irregular every day. Fortunately I can have a restful and deep sleep on Saturdays, after finishing a chapter, "he wrote on Twitter.
As seen in the screenshot, Nomura sleeps an average of 4 hours and 10 minutes during the week, and an average of 8 hours (considered “extreme” in the post) on Saturdays each time a new chapter of Blue Lock ends.
On the other hand, Muneyuki Kaneshiro and Yuusuke Nomura have published the manga in Kodansha publisher's Weekly Shonen Magazine since August 2018. The publisher published the tenth compiled volume on August 17.
