[Spanish]

¡Ya estamos de vuelta! Ayer terminó el XX Salón del Manga de Barcelona (del 30 de octubre al 2 de noviembre) y allí estuvimos como de costumbre en nuestro rinconcito en la isla de fanzines.

En esta ocasión nos reunimos Aiwa, Isaky y Ninamo para vender nuestras cosillas. Como novedades destacadas estaban el cómic original autonclusivo Daily Ai dibujado por Aiwa, varios modelos de pósters nuevos del LoL dibujados por Isaky (y que tuvieron un montón de éxito) y los charms acrílicos transparentes de Aiwa y Ninamo. Modelos nuevos de chapas, pósters, llaveros, junto a antiguos que vamos reimprimiendo. ¡Nuestra mesa estaba bien repleta!

El salón fue muy ajetreado y vino mucha gente a vernos. ¡El más ajetreado que hayamos tenido nunca! Especialmente memorable para Isaky, ¡y es que fue proclamada ganadora del Concurso de Manga de Norma Editorial de este año! Su proyecto, titulado DELETE, fue el seleccionado por la editorial para ser publicado en el Salón del Manga del año que viene. Las primeras 8 páginas pueden leerse aquí.

We are already back! Yesterday ended the XX Salón del Manga de Barcelona (from October 30 to November 2) and we were there as usual in our little corner on the fanzine alley.

This time we were Aiwa, Isaky and Ninamo to sell our stuff. As highlighted new releases we had the original one-shot comic Daily Ai drawn by Aiwa, several new prints of LoL drawn by Isaky (that had a lot of success!) and the clear acrylic charms by Aiwa and Ninamo. New models of buttons, prints, keychains, alongside with the old ones. Our table was well stocked!

The convention was very busy and many people came to see us. In fact, the busiest we’ve ever had! Especially memorable for Isaky, ¡because she was proclaimed the winner of this year’s Manga Contest held by the Spanish publisher Norma Editorial! Her project titled DELETE was selected to be published on next year’s Salón del Manga. The first 8 pages can be read here.

Here we leave you with some pics of how our booth looked.

    Japan Expo 2014

    10 Jul

    It’s been almost a week since this year’s Japan Expo finished. We were so busy the days before the con that we couldn’t update the blog with a list of what we were planning to bring or our location (although we gave some of this information through our Twitter and Facebook account). We’re sorry!

    Here you have a little review about it and some photos.

    Map JE 2014

    Japan Expo was held from July 2nd to 6th in Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center (France). It was a total of 5 days (one more than usual). We were pretty worried about this so many days, and indeed we ended exhausted, but it was fun and we really enjoyed it!

    The crew this year consisted of Ninamo (also bringing with her Aiwa and Isaky‘s stuff) and Kagura Kurosaki from our fellow doujin circle Little Pandemonium (also bringing with her Criis-chan‘s stuff).

    We were helped in the booth by our usual assistant Chun (who also came with us) and also by our French friends Maxim and Maël (who also cheered up the booth by playing the violin all days! He’s incredible skilled!). We really really want to thanks them! Otherwise, we don’t know how we would have been able to manage the booth. Thanks to them we were even able to go to some activities we wanted to!

    JE2014_01

    In fact, there is a long list of people we want to thank. We would like to particularly highlight Touhou.net for helping us with our prints order, selling some of our stuff (a Yukari t-shirt drawn by Ninamo and a Scarlet Sisters poster by Kagura, along with the traditional annual Touhou fanbook, could be found at their booth) and once again organizing such a fun dinner together with other fellow circles (Tsundereko and Tsubameyado).

    Thanks also to our friend Plusi (who also came with us) for helping us to carry back all the stuff that was left!

    And finally, we want to thanks to all the people who came to our booth, chatted with us or bought us some stuff! We were very busy all days! Thank you very much!

    You can also read Kagura‘s review of the trip here.

    Finally, if you’re wondering about the new stuff we were selling, we just updated the online store with the new Free! and Love Live! buttons/keychains and some of the new prints. You can check them here!:

    Hace unos días terminó el XIX Salón del Manga de Barcelona (del 31 de octubre al 3 de noviembre), en el que tuvimos un stand en la isla de fanzines. ¡Aquí tenéis algunas fotos!

    ¡Muchas gracias a todos los que os pasasteis! ¡Fueron unos días muy ajetreados pero a la vez muy divertidos!

    Presented by CYCLIC★REDUNDANCY
    To be released on XIX Salón del Manga de Barcelona (2013/10/31)
    Cover by Yuzuki
    Featuring 「Ero★Pinku」 | Aiwa | Alejandra MC | Amakuri | AnaKris | Blanca J.E | Daniel Vivas | Eduard Balust | Elypsia Project | Ernest Sala | Hanaoka | hart-coco | Isabel Terol | Judit Moreno | Kaoru Okino | Leunfer | Lolita Aldea | Luis Yang | Mintonia | Nev | Ninamo | OrcaJ | Sara Cuervo | Sarubaby | Susy Broullón | Últimas Crónicas | Wanaca90 | Xulia Vicente | Yuemi22 | Yuzuki

    Kuro-e Challenge - portada DEF

    [English]

    The Arena opens its doors.
    All contestants enter the battlefield, but only one of them will remain victorious.
    30 artists from all around Spain accepted the challenge and designed their fighters of choice.

    The game is about to start!

    Two years after the release of Kuro-e Artbook, a second volume arrives, Kuro-e Artbook: CHALLENGE. This time we challenged the participants to design their own character for a theoretical Fighting Game. You can find character sheets, illustrations and even comic pages through the 92 pages contained in this book. All of it in full color!

    Our aim is to show the world what the artists from Spain can do, as well as to invite you to find new talents. For this very reason, same as the former volume, this is not a lucrative project. All of the benefits will be set aside for printing more books once it sells out, or for the creation of a new volume for the Kuro-e collection.
    We hope you enjoy it!


    [Spanish]

    La arena abre sus puertas.
    Los contrincantes saltan al campo de batalla y sólo uno se alzará con la victoria.
    30 artistas de toda España han aceptado el reto y han diseñado a sus combatientes predilectos.

    ¡El juego está a punto de empezar!

    Dos años después del lanzamiento de Kuro-e Artbook, llega el segundo volumen de la colección, Kuro-e Artbook: CHALLENGE. En esta ocasión hemos retado a los artistas participantes a diseñar su propio personaje, como si para un videojuego de lucha se tratara. Podéis ver fichas de personaje, ilustraciones e incluso páginas de cómic a lo largo de las 92 páginas de las que consta el libro; ¡todo ello a color!

    Queremos mostraros de qué es capaz de hacer la cantera de dibujantes en España, invitándoos a descubrir nuevos talentos. Por ese motivo, del mismo modo que lo fue su predecesor, Kuro-e Artbook: CHALLENGE es un proyecto sin ánimo de lucro. Todos los beneficios son destinados o bien a reimprimir el libro una vez se agote, o bien a futuros volúmenes de la colección. ¡Esperamos que lo disfrutéis!

    A los que vayáis al XIX Salón del Manga de Barcelona, podréis encontrarlo a la venta en el stand de CYCLIC★REDUNDANCY (F-1).
