Working with Sakira has been a great honor for us at Juné and we are very grateful she has be so enthusiastic about this project :)

Here is a message from Sakira to you: 

_______________________________________________________________________________________

ヤオイコンにて、アメリカのファンからの大きな反響にとても驚き、感激しました。そして、ぜひ、アメリカのファンの方々に向けた新しい作品を作りたいと考えました。

BLは元々日本で生まれ、日本人の好むように作られており、私もそのように描いてきたため、今回はいろいろな発想を巡らせ、悩みました。結果的にアメコミヒーローの要素と、日本の妖怪や巫女の要素を両方併せ持つBL作品になりました。

「アメリカ発」の日本人によるBL作品第1号となる不安もありますが、デジタルマンガ社というパートナーにも恵まれ、斬新な試みという意味では大きな意義を感じています。

皆さんのために、本作品のポスター、イラスト、また数点ですがサイン入り色紙などもご提供したいと考えております。
この作品が海外で広まり、これからの作品にも繋がることを大変期待しています。

「俺巫女!」第1話では不思議なことがたくさん起こりますが、謎のままです。2話以降少しずつ明かされ、少しずつ2人の心が動いていきます。ただいま執筆中ですので、回を追うごとに魅力的なキャラクターに育つよう描いていけたらいいなと思っています。
4話では新キャラクターがドっと増えますのでおたのしみに!

When I visited Yaoi-Con, I was blown away by the sheer amount of (positive) feedback I received from the American fans. I was deeply moved. Which is why I decided to create a brand new manga just for my American fans, as a way to say thank you.

BL was originally born in Japan, so it is created in a way that caters to a Japanese audience. And since I've always written my stories in a similar way, I had to think very hard for this project. In the end, I landed on the idea of merging certain aspects of American superhero comics with elements from Japanese "Youkai" and "Mikos".

I'm a little worried about this becoming the first ever U.S. original BL manga written by a Japanese artist, but at the same time, I feel honored to have this opportunity to work alongside Digital Manga on such an exciting, innovative project.

I also have plans to provide posters, illustrations, and a few of my signed "shikishi"s for everyone.
I'm very much looking forward to this becoming more popular overseas, which I hope will contribute to the success of other titles in the future.

A lot of mysterious things will happen in Ore Miko! Episode 1, but they will remain a mystery. They will slowly start to be revealed from Episode 2 and onward, when the hearts of the two characters begin to waver for each other. I am still in the process of writing the story, so my hope is to have them develop into strong, attractive characters as the story progresses.
A bunch of new characters are planned to show up in Episode 4 so please look forward to that!

-Sakira

 

 

Episode 2 will be released on December 7, 2018 at 12:00 PST. We are also working on episode 3 and hope to release it soon as well.
