Be Beautiful selects two fans to take home a collection of comics
signed by famed author Kazuma Kodaka.
New York, NY (November 23, 2005) - Be Beautiful announced the winners of its Yaoi-Con Kazuma Kodaka Doujinshi Contest today. Throughout Yaoi-Con 2005, held this past October, Be Beautiful gave attendees a chance to win a collection of doujinshi drawn and autographed by Kazuma Kodaka -- Yaoi-Con Guest of Honor, master yaoi storyteller, and author of Be Beautiful's Kizuna: Bonds of Love.
Be Beautiful randomly selected two entries out of all those cast and has been in contact with both winners since the convention's close -- Deana Johnson, a first-time Yaoi-Con attendee who got hooked on yaoi from her sister and whose favorite book is Kizuna: Bonds of Love, and a woman who prefers to go by the name Sansei555, a yaoi fan for ten solid years, whose favorite books are Embracing Love and Kizuna: Bonds of Love and has attended every Yaoi-Con so far.
Each of the two Yaoi-Con Kazuma Kodaka Doujinshi Contest winners will soon receive a set of seven limited edition Hana to Ryu Japanese comics – a prequel to Kizuna – drawn and autographed by Kodaka-sensei along with an enamel Be Beautiful pin and personal letter of thanks from Be Beautiful's publisher.
Be Beautiful is giving those who entered the contest but didn’t win an opportunity to win the eight-foot banner featuring the main characters of Be Beautiful's latest Kodaka book, Midaresomenishi, which was displayed at this year’s Yaoi-Con and is also autographed by Kodaka. To enter, visit http://www.bebeautifulmanga.com/poll/poll01.cfm before December 1.
