[English] Expomanga 2013 took place last week, from May 10th to 12th. This time we had a commercial booth shared between C★R and the recently founded publishing house NeoDragon. Aiwa, AnaKris, Nevee and Ninamo attended the event to sell their goods along with those of Harobako, CyberSaku and Yuemi22, who did not attend in person.
On their own, NeoDragon presented and sold for the first time the girl’s love themed manga Cross Heart by AnaKris. This time it’s a new edition in Spanish that collects all the existing material of Cross Heart in a single volume. This is no longer the self edited volume we have been selling up to now in C★R, but a definitive edition made by the hands of a professional publisher. You can find more details on their website.
Here you can see a few photos of our booth. Thank you very much to everyone who visited us! We had a great time and hope to return another year!
[Español] Expomanga 2013 tuvo lugar la semana pasada del 10 al 12 de mayo. Esta vez tuvimos un stand de tipo comercial compartido entre C★R y la recién fundada editorial NeoDragon. Aiwa, AnaKris, Nevee y Ninamo asistieron al evento y estuvieron vendiendo sus cosas junto a las de Harobako, CyberSaku y Yuemi22, quienes no estuvieron presentes.
Por su cuenta, NeoDragon presentó y vendió por primera vez el manga de temática girl’s love Cross Heart de AnaKris. Esta vez se trata de una nueva edición en español que recopila todo el material existente de Cross Heart en un solo volumen. Este no es ya el volumen auto editado que hemos estado vendiendo hasta ahora en C★R, sino una edición definitiva de manos de una editorial profesional. Podéis encontrar más detalles en su página web.
Aquí tenéis algunas fotos de nuestro stand. ¡Muchas gracias a todas las personas que nos visitaron! ¡Lo pasamos muy bien y esperamos volver el año que viene!

[English] Aurora would be an ordinary student… if it wasn’t because she has the ability to see spirits and other paranormal stuff since she was a child. Her whole life changes when she meets Ciel, a boy sent from another world to hunt the mysterous monsters called “Revenants“.
Angels, ghosts, magic and lots of action and romance is what you’ll find at Phantom Edge.
[Spanish] Aurora sería una estudiante normal y corriente… si no fuera porque guarda un secreto; puede ver espíritus y demás entes paranormales desde que era pequeña. Toda su vida cambiará por completo al conocer a Ciel, un chico venido de otro mundo que se dedica a cazar a los misteriosos monstruos llamados “Umbríos”.
Ángeles, espíritus, magia y mucha acción y romance es lo que encontrarás en Phantom Edge.

Isaky is our youngest member now. She has a cute and dynamic style and awesome coloring. She has been well known on deviantART for her Sonic drawings until she decided to leave the fandom and to focus on more kind of drawings. Now it’s been a year since that decision and her improvement in that short period of time is amazing!!
She illustrated several posters for conventions, and recently won the poster contest for the V Salón del Manga de Murcia.
