The post in question by the author of Kanojo Okarishimasu was received very negatively with many highlighting that the live-action adaptation of his manga is a total failure.

On Twitter, the author of Kanojo Okarishimasu Reiji Miyajima says the following:

”I drew this illustration because I suddenly wanted to express my gratitude. There is sad news, but I can only be grateful that everyone knows about my work by every means possible and that they are excited about it! Thank you for your continued support”

His post generated controversy, attracting a lot of negative criticism to the author of Kanojo Okarishimasu. Check out some online comments below:

  • “Do we live in a world where we can’t even tell the truth, even though we’re being blamed for shit like that at Johnny’s?”
  • “Summary: “I want a lot of money, so welcome to the live-action adaptation.””
  • “Have Shueisha and Kodansha faced problems like this before? There are a lot of horrible adaptations out there.”
  • “That’s what they’re saying now…”
  • “We thank the people who are grateful!”
  • “I think it’s sad that this doesn’t become a two-way discussion.”
  • “Making a drama just based on the original work would be a win-win for everyone.”
  • “There are writers who want adaptations and this could even help them become more famous. I’m not denying that. The problem is when there are unwanted adaptations, unsolicited changes to the original work. Making posts that seem to support the tendency to disparage original authors makes no sense.”
  • “All it takes is for the author’s desire not to be fulfilled and, suddenly, people appear blaming all mixed media, calling those who write scripts for original works incompetent. The conversation changes quickly.”

As we can see, Reiji Miyajima attracts attention in the most varied ways possible, giving him a huge bad reputation in the industry.
