Due to personal reasons, I will suspend my activities on September 1, 2022.

I debuted in 2003, and thanks to you, I'm approaching the milestone of my 20th anniversary next year, but due to my personal circumstances and mental problems, it's been difficult for me to be active, so I decided to suspend my activities.

Over the past 19 years, I have received a lot of support and encouragement from my fans. It's been 19 years since I was able to continue my activities with the support and encouragement of many people.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

The suspension period is undecided.
We apologize for the concern and inconvenience caused to our fans, but we appreciate your understanding.


Thank you!

I have followed your art for many years and love the way you translate manga-styles into a traditional medium! I'm sorry to hear that it's been difficult for you to stay active. Don't worry about anniversaries like '20 years', they are just arbitrary dates. What's important is your persistent passion for your art and the growth and meaning it has brought to your life and the lives of others.

Take the time you need. Life has many paths. You do not have to return to this one.
If you do return, you may find old friends waiting, or you may not. It doesn't matter because you are a person rich with talent and nothing can take that away from you.

I wish you the best! And thank you for the wonderful work you've shared!

Madoka, I am so sorry to hear this, I know as an artist too, how mental health can have a strong impact on our works.

I want you to know that you've been one of my biggest inspirations ever, I will always adore your work. You are one of my favorite artists ever.

I wish you the best! I am rooting for you, thank you very much for such amazing art all these years. And if you decide to come back in a future, I will be happy waiting for you.

I’ve watched your YouTube videos for many years. Please take care of yourself and if you ever come back know that you will always have people that appreciate your art.

I'm an artist, and I've absolutely had times where my mental and physical illness or life problems has made it impossible to do anything creative, no matter the different mediums I use.
Your health, stability, and enjoyment come first, above anything else; your worth is not measured by productivity.
Please know that it's ok if you don't post again. You have to do what makes you happy and what keeps you safe and well. If it's fanbase pressure, or creative rut, or a downturn in health or happiness, anything, then it's a valid reason to step back in order to take care of yourself.
As long it's the best thing for you, then I support and respect you for whatever you end up doing. Your presence is a joy, not an obligation, and I hope you believe the same. I wish you well!!

Please take care, Kinoshita-san!

Your health and safety is more important than anything. I hope to one day see you creating artwork again, but until then I will be rooting for you no matter what you do.

Wishing you all the best and lots of happiness!
