Happy Miss Dream Monday!
This week, before we kick off the highly anticipated Project Animanga, we are sharing something very rare.
Please enjoy a copy of Zettai, Kare wo Ubatte Miseru – the last of a series of books written by Marie Koizumi and illustrated by Sailor Moon’s author, Naoko Takeuchi.
This book is incredibly rare and difficult to find. Only a handful of collectors know about its existence and are lucky enough to own a copy. It had a very limited print in 1998 and many of the copies have significantly deteriorated over time. When I found a copy at a good price online, I immediately snagged it with the intention of digitizing it for longevity.
Sincere thanks are owed to Brad of Moonkitty.net, who was kind enough to forward this book to me in New York since the seller would ship within Japan only.
Marie Koizumi and Naoko Takeuchi collaborated on a series of illustrated girls’ romance novels published by Kodansha between 1994 and 1998. The two manga authors remain close friends today.
I hope everyone will enjoy this download. Have a great week, and see you this Thursday for PGSM goodies! :)
