The Readable Eye Anthology is a collection of three ero(tic) doujinshi featuring adorable, monoeye girls brought to life by the artist morisugi from the circle Geosiphon. Not only will it be fully uncensored and in English, but morisugi offered to draw new pages and a custom cover making it a unique, one of a kind release. We hope you'll fund this project to cover paying the artist, staff, printing, and help us get our independent publisher started!
A custom manga style fidget spinner featuring Sik-num from the anthology.
A set of 3 full color 4 x 6in. postcards featuring cover artwork of the original doujinshi on the front and Geosiphon's logo on the back.
A DRM-free PDF of the anthology.
A paperback copy of the anthology.
Kickstarter Exclusive T-Shirt
Show some monoeye love out in public! A t-shirt featuring Sik-num and Sik-pake on the front and Geosiphon's logo on the back.
We believe in making collector items that you want to own. These paperbacks will be a limited run and numbered so you get a personalized copy. (The numbers are not first come, first served. No numbers will be reserved.)
Your name on the backer page
If you choose this pledge tier, we will add your name to our special thanks on the credits page. This project wouldn't be possible without all of you!
Original Signed Illustration
Now this one makes me jealous. If you choose this pledge tier, morisugi will draw and sign an original illustration for you. Since morisugi is a purely digital artist, we will print it on high quality paper and ship it to you. Please frame it and send us pictures!
Guided Trip to Tokyo
Let's go on a trip! Join us as we guide you on a 5-day trip in and around Tokyo! We'll work with you to build an itinerary for your ideal experience in Tokyo. Want to go shopping? Eat some good food? Hunt for figures and doujinshi? Check out some shrines? Go to a comics event and scout new releases? We're down to show you around and have a great time!
The Awa Odori in Koenji
We only have a couple stretch goals but that doesn't mean we aren't excited about them!
Printing Overhaul - $25,000
At $25,000 we will give the entire book a printing overhaul including:
-Thicker matte cover
-Spot varnish on cover to give it a nice, raised finish
-Thicker paper for the body to give it a weighty feel
More money for morisugi - $25,000+
For every $5,000 after the printing overhaul, we will send morisugi $1,000 of that.
We didn't want to come up with unrealistic stretch goals that we couldn't meet. Instead, you'll be directly supporting morisugi and us. Summer Comiket is coming up and I know morisugi will appreciate the help and we would love to seek out more doujinshi from all different genres to publish in English for you.
We are a couple of otaku who have published over 30 ero manga titles and worked on three different ero manga magazines, coordinating everything from translation to print. Both of us want to bring over more artists and genres for you! We felt that in order to publish the artists and genres we love, we needed to start our own publisher.
Our past experience in publishing has allowed us to forge relationships with translators, typesetters, printers and artists, allowing us to quickly turn around and get a printed product sent out. We are committed to giving you the highest-quality print and digital manga, and hope you can help us get started!

Risks and challenges
The only risk this project has is not getting funded. It takes a lot of back and forth with the artist to secure the rights and that wouldn't be possible without the help of our translators. Help us fund the project and make sure everyone gets paid for their hard work.
We at Shirikodama have worked on quite a number of English translated releases and it comes with meeting a lot of deadlines, both in digital and print. We have no doubt that we can get this project out to you quickly once it's funded and will keep you updated as much as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
