Characters

 Jakie O'Wisp

The protagonist of this story. She is a cheerful and easygoing fourth grader. She admires her homeroom teacher, Ms. Haichi. In her dreams after she falls asleep at night, she becomes Halloween Pajama, and fights the evil spirits and demons that dwell there. 

 Ter-Ter

A sheet draped figure who appears in Jackie's dreams. He gave the power of Halloween Pajama to Jackie so she could fight the evil spirits. 

 The Witch

The mysterious woman in black of Jackie's dreams. She is using the evil spirits for her schemes. But who is she really?

 The Devil

A being who has lost in battle to Halloween Pajama before. The Devil lies sealed in the dream world, saving strength for its resurrection.

 Julia

A girl Jackie met in her dreams. She is actually the only daughter of the Devil. Fierce and aggressive, she hunts the evil spirits.

 Ms. Uichi

Jackie's homeroom teacher. Her showy outfits have made her popular with her students.

 Chibi Ghost

A small ghost who follows Jackie around in her dreams. For some reason, it could not talk to Jackie; but when it did, Jackie's destiny changed in a big way.

Volume 0 (Prequel) 

 

 

 

Why is there Italian text?

The story goes back to 2010 when I visited Italy for an anime convention. I was completely taken by the seafood and the white wine, so I began learning Italian for the return visit. As my textbook, I wanted to read Halloween Pajama in Italian. An Italian friend was kind enough to translate it for me, and thus, the bilingual format.

Rewards

 ※The portrait reward will look like the image below. The portrait will be drawn based on the picture you send us. 

 

Why Kickstarter?

Rather than going through a standard publishing house to contract for the translation and printing, Kickstarter allows us the opportunity to put Halloween Pajama directly into the hands of you, the fans. Isn't that wonderful!?

イタリア語表記理由

2010年にアニメのイベントでイタリアに行った時、現地で食べた魚料理と白ワインに魅了され、再びイタリアを訪れた時のためにイタリア語の勉強を開始。ハロウィン・パジャマを自らのイタリア語の教科書とするべく知り合いのイタリア人の方に翻訳を依頼。イタリア語併記は以上の理由によります。
