Yuruyuri Manga Creator Calls Out Counterfeit Auction Item
posted on by Eric Stimson
A signed illustration of Chinatsu Yoshikawa, the artistically challenged pink-haired girl from Namori's Yuruyuri manga series, was recently listed on Yahoo! Japan's auction site. Bidding had already reached 150,000 yen (about $1,500).... until Twitter user @Namore21 tweeted a screencap of the auction to Namori, asking whether the illustration was authentic.
Namori's reply: It's bogus!
The item has since been removed from auction.
