Mengo Yokoyari is currently the illustrator of manga Oshi No Ko, which publishes in collaboration with the author of Kaguya-sama: Love Is War, Akasaka. However, as we had pointed out in a previous article, there is no thing that irritates it more than leaks.
On Twitter there are quite a few accounts dedicated to raise filtrations of the manga and anime industry, as news, volume covers and upcoming manga chapters. Thus, Yokoyari shared an update on Twitter requesting the followers of it to stop publishing filtrations of upcoming manga chapters, especially the color illustrations that are included. However, he shortly after he eliminated this publication.
The Twitter user @Namaryuu published an update by pointing out this situation: "Mengo Yokoyari has already erased this publication. I have no idea what was the trigger of this, but maybe he had been having too much relevance or maybe he learned that the allegedly filtered illustration had already been officially published? "
The publication of the illustrator, rescued through a screenshot, expressed: "What should I do if I can not prevent yet non-official color illustrations to be published on Twitter through accounts outside of Japan? I just have to block them all. Please wait for the official publication on Thursday! ».
Akasaka and Yokoyari began the publication of the manga in the magazine Weekly Young Jump of the publisher Shueisha in April 2020. The publisher published the second compilation volume in October 2020, followed by the third in February 2021 in Japan. Aka Akasaka (Kaguya-sama: Love Is War) writes it while Mengo Yokoyari (Kuzu no Honkai) illustrates him.
