Manga creator Akino Kondoh provided the jacket art for the techno-pop band Hikashu's latest CD. The CD, titled Anguri, shipped on Tuesday.
The CD is Hakushu's 23rd original album and its first release since its Ikite Koi Chinmoku album debuted in 2015. The band's official YouTube channel posted a commercial for the album in September.
Similar to Ikite Koi Chinmoku, the band recorded all 13 of the CD's songs in New York. The band debuted in 1977.
Kondoh also currently lives in New York. The web magazine Akichi is serializing her New York de Kangae Chū (Thinking in New York) essay manga, and the 135th installment debuted on September 28.
North American publisher Top Shelf released some of Kondoh's work in the AX collection book. The book is a 400-page selection of alternative manga from Seirinkogeisha's bimonthly AX anthology magazine in Japan. Kondoh held a talk in New York in 2010 for the release.
