About

The World Of The Seirei:

Let us introduce you to our graphic novel series "Seirei: Spirits Born from Nature".

Our story takes place in an untouched forest in ancient Japan. However, this is no ordinary forest; it's brimming with life unlike anything you've ever seen. This forest is home to Seirei.

"But, what is a Seirei?" Good question! 

In Japanese folklore, a Seirei is a spirit that is tied to nature. In other words, anything in nature can manifest it's own "spirit" that impacts the physical world.

Chapter one of our story begins with a strange occurrence in the dead of night between a frightened fox and an angry wolf, a catastrophe striking the very next day causing our main characters to leap into action, and a mysterious new creature appearing out of the chaos.

 Meet The Characters:

Lord Shika, Gust Spirit

- Lord Shika: 

Shika is the spirit of the gust and wind that blows over the forest. He is known for being the most sociable and charming of the Seirei, but he has a habit of valuing others over himself.

Lord Osanshou, River Spirit

- Lord Osanshou:

Osanshou is the spirit of the river that surrounds the forest. He is the most wise of the seirei and he dedicates himself to self improvement and personal growth. He is the "older brother" type for those around him.

Lord Hotaru, Tree Spirit
Lord Hotaru, Tree Spirit
Final Character Concept by Diego Revelo

- Lord Hotaru:

Hotaru is the grandest of all the tree spirits and just like most tree spirits prefers to keep to himself. He likes to be an observer and as a result is somewhat socially awkward/outspoken. Nonetheless, the sake of the forest is one of the most important things to him.

Lord Zaru, Wildfire Spirit

- Lord Zaru:

Zaru begins his story at the end of Chapter 1. He appears out of a burning tree and has a foreboding expression as he looks out onto the rest of the forest. What kind of spirit is he and what will he do?

See our main characters fight to protect their forest home while learning about each other and themselves all along the way. Things are not always as they appear in this mystical place and anything can happen. The only way to know how things end up is to get this kickstarter funded!

Who We Are: 

We are Blue Sphere Productions and the Seirei series is our flagship story. We have done a lot of production over the past few years, but this is the one we are most proud of.  

The Seirei Production Team is made up of:

Kevin Florkiewicz - Project Manager, Graphic Designer, Letterer, Writer, and Series Creator.

Diego Revelo- Storyboarding, Pencil/Line artist.

Eugen Betivu - Colorist.

We all work together from around the globe (USA, Moldova, and Peru) to make this book the best it can be. We certainly hope that you enjoy reading the book as much as we enjoy making it.

Reward Tiers:
 

We have a TON of options for backer rewards and a lot of them have Early Bird discounts, but act fast because there are only 5 slots for each early bird option.

Even if you can't get an early bird tier, there are still many great options to choose from.

Don't see a reward set that has what you want? Shoot us a a message! Now, take a closer look at some of the merch we have!

Our Funding Goal: 

We are raising $7,250 to cover the cost of production, printing, shipping, and kickstarter fees so we can create Volume 1.

Break it down now, y'all. One hop this time.

Volume 1 is 60 pages of full color content with a few additional pages in the back with concept art and work-in-progress/behind-the-scenes.

The final book will be 6.75" x 10.25" perfect bound with a full color high gloss soft cover as well as the 60 full color pages not including bonus content.

If we can reach our goal of $7,250 by the end of our campaign the book will go into full production, be printed, and will ship out with all other backer rewards approximately April 2020.

 Stretch Goals:
 

We also have a stretch goal that would be amazing to achieve!

$14,500: If we can reach our starting goal amount twice then, we will be making Volume 1 and an adorable plush of Lord Hotaru, the Tree spirit. He's 8 inches of buggy, cuddly goodness.

8 inches large is the perfect size for hugs...from a bug...BUG HUGS!!!

We hope you will help us bring this book to life by supporting this Kickstarter. Let's make this the beginning of a fantastic story. 

Thank you for all your support,

Risks and challenges

If we are able to reach our funding goals the only real risk is time frame for production, printing, etc. We have several quality suppliers to help ensure that all parts of this project are made to the highest quality. Quality is our number one priority and it can't be rushed, but we will make sure we deliver the best product possible and we will keep all our backers as updated as we can along the way!
