New for-all-ages comic ‘Fish and Water (JPN)’, now serializing.

I started serialization of new comic for-all-ages ‘Fish and Water’, what the first episode was published as one shot on last May. Now, the second episode is available on Web Action, free to read.
It’s a slice-of-life story of two close dudes under the COVID pandemic. I’d like to continue the story until enough pages to publish one book.

A mesmerizing coming-of-age and coming-out graphic novel by the genius writer-artist of the Eisner Award–winning breakout hit My Brother’s Husband

Set in contemporary suburban Japan, Our Colors is the story of Sora Itoda, a sixteen-year-old aspiring painter who experiences his world in synesthetic hues of blues and reds and is governed by the emotional turbulence of being a teenager. He wants to live honestly as a young gay man in high school, but that is still not acceptable in Japanese society. His best friend and childhood confidante is Nao, a young woman whom everyone thinks is (or should be) his girlfriend, and it would be the easiest thing to play along—she knows he’s gay but knows, too, how difficult it is to live one’s truth in his situation.

Sora’s world changes forever when he meets Mr. Amamiya, a middle-aged gentleman who is the owner and proprietor of a local coffee shop and is completely, unapologetically out as a gay man. A mentorship and platonic friendship ensues as Sora comes out to him and agrees to paint a mural in the shop, and Mr. Amamiya counsels Sora about how to deal with who he is. But it won’t be easy. Mr. Amamiya paid a high price for his freedom of identity, and when a figure from his past suddenly appears, the situation becomes a vivid example of just how complicated life can be.

New gay adult comic “BSB: Cop – The Case of Chris Collins” is now available on pixivFANBOX

I published new gay adult comic “BSB: Cop – The Case of Chris Collins” on my pixiv FANBOX. Part 1 was already published on 4th December, and part 2 will be coming on 11th.

For 200 years humans and orcs have been living together in peace. And ever since, there have been humans that are sexually attracted to orcs.

They simultaneously had an inferiority complex and a longing for the orc’s large build and their huge penis, and the desire to be subjugated and submit to them.

They worshiped the orcs, calling them “Big Sir,” while the orcs called them “BSB (Big Sir’s Bitch).”
