❤Those two.❤ And Hiroki’s expression here reminds me of their flashback scene at the kotatsu. Those who subscribe to the Patreon got the bonus of having the sake name meanings revealed for that special scene. It’s been a while now, but if you found yourself wondering, you can take a look back at page 568 and read the meanings of their shared drinks below.

So... this blog is something I've been wanting to start posting to for quite a long time really. With writing the manga—their stories—talking is easy. I watch and listen to what they say, experience how they feel, and do my best to write it down as true as I can. Talking like this is becoming unhidden from behind their voices somewhat. And well, I guess I share a certain shyness that Hiroki seems to have. Although, his might be mostly related to an accidental 'walking in on' of Oniichan and Takahashi-san while they were baking in the kitchen—and at a time when Hiroki was at a somewhat difficult age too. ^^; Ah, which is precisely why he now finds himself down in the sake cellar having a Mad Hatter’s Tea with a four foot rubber squirrel named Henry. I'm sure it will all work out though, Hiroki. ☆♪

After nearly 6 years, 630 pages, and loads of despair and love and hard work, we're getting together the first two volumes of CRUSH! for print! We're putting together a campaign to raise enough money for a small print run. (*_*)/We've decided to work on getting Volume 1 & 2 into books with our first campaign, which will collect the first four years of CRUSH! We've decided on a fairly low amount to get to the minimum order of books the printer requires, but if we pass up our goal we'd be able to order a whole lot more! (and maybe add in some good stretch goals for our backers, too!)Click here to check out the campaign and help usWe're excited to get this going and hope you are too! Please tell your friends and share all over the place. Feel free to ask any questions, and most of all, a big big thanks for your support and love! ❤
As a reward for reaching $100+ on our Patreon, we’ve posted the “Age Chart” bonus picture!
What is that, you might ask? Well, it is all of our main guys (14 of them to be exact) lined up in order of their age… and in their pajamas (…or lack of).
So if you want to see who wears their undies to bed, or if you don’t care about undies and just want to know if KoiZ is older than Hiroki, you can sign up for our Patreon and pledge any amount from $2 a month!
(at $5 a month you’ll get preview sketches of upcoming pages, previews of new art, and other goodies, and at $10 a month you’ll get all that plus written prose giving more insight into some scenes, and postcards mailed to you!)
We're giving away one cool t-shirt to the person who can take a guess at how many t-shirts belonging to KoiZ that we've seen so far. Click here or on the image above for details.
Also, we're taking preorders to do a print run of this shirt design. Modeled by KoiZ back in scene 3, you too can now own the "Do Not Eat Raw" t-shirt! :D :D
Click on over to the store to get one - we'll be taking preorders until July 14, so don't miss your chance.
