Heroes of the Past

My childhood friend, Michi Ichizen, is a troublemaker and constant seeker of adventure. Thanks to him, I was dragged into a cascading chain of events, all because he wanted to be a hero. It involved petty feuds, weird people, ridiculous battles, and so many strange conversations. All I wanted was to finish my homework that night, damn it!

The title cover and the characters in the showcase were drawn by my friend, Kyle. You can find more of the art he's done for the story at:
