OPERA 23 loves Kusama Sakae
The cover for OPERA 23 was released yesterday and is quite gorgeous. Art is by Bikke, who iirc has never had a cover for OPERA before. Lately it seems that OPERA is breaking away from always having the same five or so people grace the cover, considering three of the last four covers were new faces—Matsuo Marta, Hiiragi Nozomu and Bikke.
I still cringe with an incredible feeling of “WAAAANT!” when I see Aniya Yuiji’s name, but I’ll try to be patient for her tankoubon to come out. Though I had completely forgotten about the Kusama Sakae pin-up, which is almost something I would have paid 980円 for when combined with Aniya Yuiji chapters. Almost.
Speaking of Kusama Sakae, she supposedly has yet another tankoubon coming out, this time through Chocolat Comics. It will be titled Mahiru no Koi and I’m kind of excited about it since I have a chapter by her in one of my issues of Shousetsu Chocolat and it’s pretty fabulous. As far as I know, there’s no specific date given for the release yet aside from late December.
