Viz Media is celebrating its 30th anniversary, so congrats to Viz! To mark the occasion, famed manga artists sent signed drawings to the company. One of them in particular, however, stands out in the cool drawing department.

As pointed out on 2ch, Twitter user Robert snapped these, among other, signed drawings. Most of them are simply that: signed drawings. For example, here is Eiichiro Oda’s.

So good. At the top, it reads “Viz,” and below that, he’s written “30" (三十) in Japanese. Inside that, he drew Bleach’s Ichigo Kurosaki. No signature is necessary for a drawing this striking.
