EigoMANGA JOINS DEVIL'S DUE IN THE RELEASE OF
SAKURA PAKK'S ON-GOING SERIES

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 6, 2006: EigoMANGA LLC. and Devil's Due Publishing, Inc. have announced the release of the Sakura Pakk digest series starting with Sakura Pakk Volume 1 (ISBN#: 1-932796-49-5). Sakura Pakk is an on-going, 160 pgs, B&W anthology comic book digest series beginning since January 2006.

Sakura Pakk is considered a shôjo (or shoujo) publication which is, a style of anime and manga intended for girls (that may have some crossover appeal to boys as well).

Shôjo anthologies and publications from other leading companies predominantly run on themes centered on romance and relationships. Sakura Pakk's stories portray women and female protagonists in roles far beyond the "teeny bopper" lifestyle. The creative team behind Sakura Pakk believes that female readers are into more than just romance, beauty, and style. We wanted to produce an original publication that depicts women in far more diverse roles and situations”, states EigoMANGA's publisher, Austin Osueke.

The stories in Sakura Pakk contain compelling Original English Language (OEL) manga stories that emphasize themes such as the spirit of modern femininity, wellness, friendship, self-confidence in addition to serious topics such as sexual harassment, and teenage depression.
