Manga Assistants

To be able to meet the hectic weekly publication schedule demanded by Weekly Shounen Jump, the manga author Sorachi Hideaki has a team of manga assistants to help him fill in the less critical parts of the drawings while he takes care of the main characters/scenes. Some of these assistants are highlighted in the Gin Channel! (Gintama Official Character Book) published by Shueisha Jump Comics[1]. Please note that the assistants may change over time.
