Henjo Manga Offers Industry's 1st Automated Autograph Session
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
The official Twitter account for Yoshiru Konogi's Henjo ~Hen na Joshi Kōsei Amaguri Senko~ (Weird Girl: Strange Female High School Student Senko Amaguri) is holding the "manga industry's first" automated digital autograph session. Although the online event isn't offering true signatures, it gives fans who are normally unable to attend autograph sessions a chance for a personalized experience. Also, Konogi's hands get to rest.
Fans who want to participate have to follow the Twitter account and tweet a photo of the cover of one of the manga's compiled volumes with the hashtag "#henjo" (in Japanese). The account's bot recognizes covers of the manga, attaches a digital signature to the images, and tweets them back to the senders.
Each fan can participate once per day. Although the autograph event is an automated process, it can take some time for the bot to send the pictures back due to the volume of submissions.
Konogi launched the manga in 2012, and Hakusensha released the seventh compiled book volume on August 29. The story centers on a perverted female high school student named Senko Amaguri. Two men come to live and work with her father and his odd-job company. Senko torments the men with her strange personality.
