Tariji Sasaki has been designing covers for monthly children magazine CoroCoro Comic since 1986, so it’s no surprise that his storied career has landed him in the Guinness Book of World Records.

And Tariji Sasaki’s comments on the honor:
“I will always be thrilled with the work I love. I’ve been designing the covers of CoroCoro Comic for 34 years now. I would like to thank the editorial staff fervently and intensely.
