In mid-August, the author of the Senpai Tejina Manga (Magical Sempai), Azu, announced that he would make the draw of a total of thirty volumes signed to his followers in social networks in Japan, both from Senpai's Manga Sangina and his new work, Kenja Ga Nakama nor Natta. Although the raffle was carried out satisfactorily, Azu surprised with a publication that definitely showed the total disappointment of it.
"I will not trust anyone from now on," the author wrote on Twitter accompanied by a screen capture of a sales platform on the Internet. In this capture it is shown that one of the signed volumes that he gave to the fanatics of him, in specific Kenja Ga Nakama manga nor Natta (A Saint Joined My Party!), Is being sold by 3,000 yen (around 27 dollars) .
«I know this is something that some people do, but I never thought it would happen to me. This is definitely a way to trample the time and money I devoted to this raffle. Oh God. I understood in advance when he asked me to only put my name, but I decided to trust this person ... ». In comments forums in Japan, the author's ingenuity was critically criticized, since it is common sense to add the full name of the person to whom the autograph is dedicated to prevent it from being re-sold.
AZU began the publication of the Senpai Tejina Manga in the magazine Weekly Young Magazine of the Kodansha publisher in February 2016 and ended it in February 2021. The publisher published the seventh compilation volume in July 2020 in Japan, concluding with the eighth in March 2021. The work inspired an adaptation to the anime of twelve episodes produced by the studies Liden Films, under the direction of Fumiaki Usui and scripts written by Rinternou Ikeda, released in July 2019. Subsequently began the publication of a new manga entitled Kenja GA Nakama or Natta!, On March 24.
