Voice actress Masumi Asano confirmed on Friday that she is creating and selling her first dōjinshi (self-published) manga with Hayate the Combat Butler creator Kenjirō Hata for the next Comic Market event. For this four-panel manga about life as a voice actress, Asano is drawing the storyboards and drafting the story, while Hata is drawing the final art.
Comic Market 81 will run from Thursday, December 29 to Saturday, December 31, and Asano's dōjin circle ("Hajimemashite.") will appear on December 31 in East Hall at space Shi-61a.
Asano starred in such titles as Doujin Work, Ikki Tousen, Basquash!, Kowarekake no Orgol, and Senjō no Valkyria 3: Ta ga Tame no Jūsō. She previously took part in the Doujin Work television series' live-action segments, during which the cast members tried to create their own dōjinshi. She played Risa Asakaze in the Hayate the Combat Butler television series.
