Kickstarter Spotlight: #1: Hana Doki Kira: A Shojo Anthology

I will be be doing a new section on the site that I think many readers will like called "Kickstarter of The Week." This will showcase a project that myself or the team finds interesting that we think you Otakus & Geeks readers would want to check out. This week's project comes from a group of artist with one passion in mine Shojo. Read the details below.

Hana Doki Kira is a comics and Illustration Anthology on Kickstarter featuring 26 unique and talented artists inspired by the subgenre of Japanese comics called Shōjo. The anthology was created and put together by members of the Year 85 group, six female artists brought together by a shared passion. 26 artists with diverse skills and styles, with experience ranging from the fine arts to game design, were asked to consider what Shōjo personally meant to them, and to create art based on their interpretations. Known for its distinctive use of flowery imagery, magical plot devices, and romantic themes, Hana Doki Kira takes its title from the same three key elements of the Shōjo world– ‘Hana’ meaning flower, ‘Doki’ echoing the sound of a pounding heart, and ‘Kira’the impression of sparkling beauty.
