We are currently planing to produce and publish an anime fanzine (doujinshi) in May of this year. Some details are given below:
Name: 『アニメルカ』 (Animerca or Ani-merca)
Group: アニメルカ製作委員会（Project Animerca）
Place: Doujin Freemarket on May 23rd, 2010
Summer Comicket on August 15th, 2010
Price: Not decided
Writers: now under negotiation.
(The English name of the book “Animerca” sounds like America but it is purely coincidental. アニメルカ in Japanese does not imply that)
We would like to devote a section of our publication to works submitted by foreign anime fans around the world who would be willing to write articles or essays from a non-Japanese viewpoint. The choice of title and article content we leave for you to decide, but we wish to discuss your article with you before publication.
We will give each of you at least two pages in A5 book format, so you can write up to around 1000-1500 words.
We shall translate the submitted works into Japanese and publish them.
As this is a non-profit publication, we cannot offer payment for any works that we recieve, but we shall send you a copy of the finished magazine.
The name of our writers will be announced on February 13th.
If possible, please send us a temporary title and an abstract of your writing before the announcement date.
The deadline for the finished articles will be the end of March.
If you have any question about the book, feel free to ask me by email or Skype (id: ep_zero).
