A group of manga artists, under the guidance of  Ranjo Miyake, have launched a post-tsunami art project, entitled “Jishin no Baka Yaro: MDS Sakusen”, or “F*** You, Earthquake”.

Many  manga artists thought “I want to help! Through manga!” And that’s what we’re doing. These are the illustrations and messages submitted by manga artists who want to do what they can now”.

The title was thought up by Shiriagari Kotobuki. The project’s subtitle, “Manga-ka datte dekiru koto wo suru”, means “Even manga artists will do what they can”. As manga artists we send you messages from deep within our souls. We’re powerless to help you, but we are thinking of you, praying for you, wishing you well”.
