Here are the creator comments from the last few issues of Weekly Shonen Jump. In the back of each issue are short comments from every manga creator in the issue. Usually they are pointless comments but sometimes they can be quite interesting!
Akira Amano(REBORN) WJ#40 I actually got to see cicadas coming out of their shells this year! Their white bodies and wings were amazing!
WJ#41 I was thinking that I'd be eating shaved ice for the last time this year, but then I ate it two more times after that.
WJ#42 I learned for the first time that dental floss comes in mint flavor! I'm pretty addicted to the taste.
Masashi Kishimoto(NARUTO) WJ#40 I saw District 9. It's the first great movie I've seen in a while. I need to get through my DVD backlog.
WJ#41 May Satoshi Kon rest in peace. I believe his wonderful films will live on forever.
WJ#42 I love the magazine called CUT. The interviews with the creators inspire me.
Tite Kubo (BLEACH) WJ#40 I somehow lost weight only in my lower half. I'm happy but now I have to replace all my pants.
WJ#41 Kawashita-sensei's poster of all the current Jump heroines was amazing. I hope she can do what for the all time Jump series next!
WJ#42 I almost feinted after my editor told me my future schedule. I can do it!
