SerializationEdit

Originally when Eiji got serialized, it was for his manga Yellow Hit but when editor Yujiro came to collect the first chapter, Eiji submitted Crow in its place because he felt more interested in that series.

The Textless ChapterEdit

The chapter that appeared in the 24th issue of Shonen Jump, with no text and Eiji told the story through pictures. He redid this chapter immediately after seeing chapter 8 of PCP when Mashiro Moritaka changed his drawing style. According to Mashiro he did this to show Mashiro, even if it meant slipping in the ratings a little.

Crossover with +NaturalEdit

The series protagonist made a crossover in another series +Natural, for which Eiji draws the art.

TriviaEdit

Original crow

  • Eiji came up with the design for Crow while he was in elementary school. The character back then was less human looking and the clothes were very different, but some elements remain: goggles, hairstyle.
  • Eiji holds Crow feathers often and has them around his desk.
  • Crow came 2nd in the first and second Manga popularity poll with 1435 votes and 1354 votes respectively.
  • Crow could be based on Cooro from the manga +Anima. They both have crow-like features and goggles on their heads, as well as very similar names. The series in which Cooro appears, +Anima, also resembles +Natural in the style of its title.
  • There is a book from Bakuman merchandise that has Crow on the cover and apparently there is a hint of the main character's name in the cover which is Musashi Karasu. Musashi is the name of a legendary samurai thought to be the stongest ever and Karasu (カラス) means "crow". The book is in tankobon format but it's just a notebook.
