This is our website for drawings, manga, and writing created by our club members.

I’m also putting the same material up on the following site, which may be easier to navigate:



We’d love to know what you think. E-mail me your comments at [email protected], and I’ll post them in the next issue.

Fan Fiction by Samantha S.

Kai and Igarashi were on a friendly date, and they were eating and laughing until… Kae fell onto Igarashi, and it happened by someone pushing her, because Igarashi and Kae were sitting right next to each other!

Then Igarashi’s face and Kae’s face were SUPER red, but Kae got up and awkwardly said, “Eh, hehe… ummm… so what now? We’ve been here for two and a half hours! Oh my god, Igarashi! It’s 11:43 p.m. I’m sorry, but can you drop me off at my house? Please?”

Igarashi said, “OK, let’s go. Cuz I’m in trouble, too.”

Igarashi put his hand on his neck, scratching it nervously. Kae walked to Igarashi’s car, and Igarashi ran over quickly to open the door, to be a gentleman.
