Original Sketch by Mangaka Kudo Ai
Sketch from Crazy for You

Book Release Date: June 30, 2015

Mangaka: 工藤あい - Kudo Ai
 
As part of a promotion this book a first edition was sold new in the Shibuya location of Animate.  It came mint with the promotional Obi still around the book.  The problem with purchasing original art drawn on Manga is the covers will yellow and fade if no steps are taken in the preservation.  So I carefully removed the cover with the sketch of the Uke? from the story.  
 
So the problem with kind of dipping ones toe into these waters.  Is you never really know what you are going to get, unless you are grabbing art from VERY well known Mangaka.  Kudo-san only has this one book out, it just came out this year over the summer.  It looks like she signed and drew a little sketch for a whole bunch of her volumes when the books came out.  The story seems to be about a Pop/J-Rock Star that falls in love with a high schooler, it is all very shonen-aiey which I do love.  I just wish it was in English...  I hope someone picks it up it seemed to be a very sweet story.
