A Message from Sakira
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:
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!
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.
Sakiras work is awesome and I really really love it ! I’m looking forward to all coming episodes :3 !
I super excited for the release of Episode 1.
I hope I can buy it and read it too
So wonderful! I love her works and will continue to support the development of yaoi in the US
