About Kaworu Watashiya  

Kaworu Watashiya is a female manga artist best known for Kodomo no Jikan. She resides in Tokyo, Japan, and serializes her current title Queen's Artist in Comic High Action Comics published by Futabasha. Her art design is very unique, including child-like and innocent features while specializing in seinen style story-telling. Watashiya is truly awesome when it comes to female character creation, as they embody independence, intelligence, and equality, regardless of age and appearance. Her work was previously slated for an American release but was unfortunately cancelled due to numerous reasons, including the differing Japanese and American cultural perceptions of the manga's controversial subject matter. 

“What I heard about 'issues in volume 2 and later' made me realize the differences in the cultures between the countries. My honest feeling is, 'It's unfortunate, but what can I do?”

We are here to give the title a second chance to be released, but we need your support to publish and localize the full release of Kodomo no Jikan.

Watashiya-sensei is looking forward to seeing it published! She appreciates all the support you can give her!

"Hi! I'm so happy that "Kodomo no Jikan" is going to be translated into English! :) ♥ I'm right in the middle of creating the illustrations we will reward to our Kickstarter backers. Please participate in our crowdfunding campaign! (♪) I hope many of you will read my manga and let me know what you think!" -Kaoru Watashiya

[UPDATE 05.31.2016]

 

"Thank you so much for supporting and participating in our Kickstarter campaign! I am aware there are many opinions out there regarding this campaign. My only wish is that people read the series before they pass judgement. That's why we started this Kickstarter in the first place: so people can have a chance to read it. 

Whether they are backers or not, thank you to everyone who has expressed their support for the Kickstarter campaign(´ε`*)"

Summary

Newly hired Aoki Daisuke becomes a teacher to a 3rd grade class after the previous quits. He thought teaching was going to be a breeze until he meets troublemaker Rin Kokonoe. Rin wreaks havoc on Daisuke's job by attempting to seduce him. Due to Rin's odd behavior, Daisuke decides to make a visit to her caretaker. Little does he know, Rin has a traumatic past hidden away behind her innocent face. 

Kodomo no Jikan is a school life comedy by day, and a psychological drama by night. As Daisuke attempts to remedy the complex challenges his students face outside of school grounds, the reader is forced to ask oneself, is Rin really just an innocent child? Or was Daisuke the innocent one after all?

Kodomo no Jikan sets itself apart from other manga by addressing controversial themes that nobody has dared to touch, and spinning it into a positive light. Watashiya challenges the reader's sense of morality. This is a highly recommended series if you like to explore unique subjects within literature. Best to be read with an open-mind.

To respond to the comments on the web:

"I can’t believe this title is back when we finally got it off shores! This is a harmful publication!" We are aware of the controversy. This campaign was created for the fans that were shut-off from an opportunity to get this title in their hands. If you’re unfamiliar with this series, please check out our sampler [Here], and decide whether or not the title is for you.

"This is child pornography!" This is the most common negative comment we read online. This book is neither graphically explicit nor pornographic. Watashiya’s intention was not to induce sexual arousal, but to write a dramatic tale of a teacher who is concerned for his students. The book contains heavy amounts of 'ecchi' / fan service and suggestive dialogue throughout the series. Since the title was featured in a Seinen magazine (target male audience ages 18+) in Japan, it was sold to all ages and genders at retail stores. The Seinen genre features a style of story writing that includes complex plots and challenging real-life themes. The writing is focused on plot lines and the interaction between characters, rather than action and fight scenes that are more frequent in mainstream manga and anime. Comparable series that are in the seinen genre include Neon Genesis Evengelion, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and Ghost in the Shell. It's not unusual that seinen manga, including Nana to Kaoru and Nozoki Ana, includes sexually suggestive scenes.

"You’re a moron! They clearly have sex and nudity in the book! That’s porn!" This campaign is only meant for the fans. The book includes sexually suggestive scenes, but is not explicitly pornographic. The sexual scenes serve a purpose to the plot. Censoring these scenes will significantly affect the story line, so we have chosen to keep it how the author originally intended. The book is best described as "ecchi-level" / borderline erotica and requires a Parental Advisory warning. I's rating will be an "M" for mature readers. The rating is equal to an "R" for movies containing nudity, language, and sexual situations but is separate from a "NC-17" rating which has explicit content. If you’re expecting pornography, please look elsewhere.

Others who can speak on the book’s content

(These comments do not reflect our opinions, but do showcase the positive comments overshadowed by the criticism. Bias comments within.)

"Literature at times addresses very controversial issues, and those issues are at times quite disturbing. Kodomo no Jikan may not be the greatest piece of literature, but it does have its merits, and to deny them because there’s some disturbing imagery is irresponsible. I will reiterate, I did find what Rin and Daisuke’s relationship evolved into was troublesome, but most of the series is a story of a teacher caring for his student."
- Cross Rinne Journals

"While there have been more worse manga titles out there that showcased suggestive scenes, this series is more about a character's hunger for attention. Now, if whoever reads beyond the confines of its theme is another problem which may then become as controversial as it was made already by those few who only heard of it yet shot it down to oblivion!"- Arc Image

"This story was written by a FEMALE mangaka. It is REALISTIC in many aspects because it doesn't make children these "innocent" creatures, however, it still portrays the realities that they may not be innocent...but they still have a lot to learn about life/the world."
- tAsTytEmPAi

Risks and challenges

WHY KICKSTARTER?
Since we are a very small indie publisher, we chose kickstarter is simply to speed up the process and lessen the financial burdens. Under normal circumstances, it generally takes a long amount of time and finances to print new titles. However, if we had the initial funds and print new titles at a highly reasonable amount, it'll be a quick and easy process! PLUS Kickstarter allows us to connect with you, the fans! We weigh comments, praise, and criticism into consideration greatly! Because we are such a small publisher we would love to work with you to bring out the highest quality product out as possible.

THE PROMISE:
Digital Manga Inc. has a successful background with kickstarter and this will be our 15th project! Our track record shows that we can deliver these promises. We have completed and fulfilled all of our backer's pledges in our past successful campaigns.
