Wind Singer

Today I have some more vintage shoujo manga by Yoshida Akimi for you. This collection of one-shots was begun by HotCakes, but their translator dropped out after one story, so I'll be continuing it with them. The first story, At Summer's End, can be found on their site.

There are seven stories total, and since they're all unrelated one-shots, the release pace will probably be pretty sporadic, but I hope you'll enjoy each one as we manage to get them posted!

you are making me becoming a fan of Akimi Yoshida! the drawing style is so different from Yasha, but these short stories are very interesting : thank you!

I think this was drawn at least ten years before Yasha, so it's no surprise her style evolved some. To me it's still recognizable as the same artist, though, unlike some who completely change their style over the years.
