Upcoming New Project: Kimi no Tame Nara Shineru

We are pleased to announce that we are taking on a new project, Kimi no Tame Nara Shineru (For Your Sake, I Would Die).

This is a charming work very, very, VERY loosely based on the life of Heian-era author and poet Sei Shonagon. The 27 year-old Shonagon, depicted here as a sort of medieval NEET, manages to land a job as the private tutor of the beautiful and refined teenage princess, Teishi. (Yes, age-gap romance!) There are also a number of other quirky court ladies, some of whom have their own eye on Shonagon...

Zefiris really liked this one, and I'm quite taken with it as well. Please look forward to the first chapters soon! (And don't worry, we won't be neglecting Choir. We intend to alternate releases.)
