I’ve decided to delay “Furou Kyoudai” and “The Scarecrow of Oz” short series until July to allow for time for the release of compilation of the series and one-shots into a book (Hopefully, the books will come out way before July. If so, we’ll start when the books come out instead of waiting.). The magazine print quality of the short series portion is atrocious and will take a long time to clean and edit (It’s making my eyes burn and tearing up my mousing-wrist — hello carpal tunnel…). Even if we do our best, we could probably only bring the … Continue reading Delaying "Furou Kyoudai" and "The Scarecrow of Oz" Short Series
“Furou Kyoudai” will be serialized in Hana to Yume magazine starting in issue 7 (March 5, 2011)! We will, of course, pick up the series. Like “The Scarecrow of Oz” it should be a short serialization. I will update this post with a preview image when I get Hana to Yume issue 6. Continue reading "Furou Kyoudai" to be Serialized!
Phew! We managed to get this done before Thanksgiving madness goes full-swing! Anyhow, here is the long version of Furou Kyoudai! The story is the same as short version, however, there’s more detail and character development. I really enjoy this sibling pair and I hope Hakusensha allows Shiwasu-sensei to turn this into a series. Links to the long version of “Furou Kyoudai”: (Zip) (PDF) There is a 40-page follow on “Furou Kyoudai” one-shot. We will try to release it early in the new year. Next up is J+K and Magnolia. December will be nuts because of the holidays and vacation … Continue reading One-Shot: "Furou Kyoudai" The Long Version
W00t! Well, color me happy! Look what came with Hana to Yume Issue 24/2010! A wonderful book with sequels to “The Scarecrow of Oz” and “Furou Kyoudai.” *Hana to Akuma Spoilers Ahead* Also in Hana to Yume issue 24 is the final chapter of “Hana to Akuma” which features (highlight white space to read) Hana and Vivi’s wedding and off into the distant future — half demon half human babies!!! Unfortunately, Hana got old and died…but Vivi’s happy happy with his kids. Don’t know what’s going on with fandom, but I’m tempted to finish up the last three chapters… Update! … Continue reading One-shot Sequels!!!
Here is the first of our Halloween special one-shots — “Furou Kyoudai” (“The Furou Siblings”). There are actually two versions of this one-shot. I choose to do the short version for now because I was quite impressed that the mangaka was able to tell a full story in 16 pages. The longer version is 40 pages and we will release it sometime in November or December. Anyhow… Links to “Furou Kyoudai” short version: (Zip) (PDF) The second of our Halloween special one-shots, “Guardian Joker” will be released very soon.
