KH related products (other than paperbacks)….

Question asked:

Ans: YES!

Besides KH paperbacks (which, by the way, was published in both tankobun and bunkobun versions in Japan. KH was also officially license and published in both Chinese and English), other associate publications include:

Other associated press release

It is no secret that Watanabe sensei is a good friend with the production team of Theatre Company Caramelbox (演劇集団キャラメルボックス). In fact, she was inspired to create the story of KH after watching the theatre play, Kaze wo Tsugu Mono (風を継ぐ者). Some of the original cast of the play even returned for the KH CD Drama afterwards! ^^

Promotions of Kaze wo Tsugu Mono was often associated with KH (and vice versa) thereafter. Above was another theatre play made as the sequel to Kaze wo Tsugu Mono (See KH being mentioned in the text? and of course a picture of Okita & Sei on the top left corner)

PS. I vaguely remember there was a promotional ad. on the play at the back of one of the KH tankobon. Without the books with me now, I can’t confirm which volume it was exactly; perhaps someone can enlighten here? ^^

Anyhow, the theatre company was greatly affected by the the mega earthquake in Japan early this year (2011). To support the production team, Watanebe sensei has set up a website  to call for others’ support. In return, the supporter will receive some freebies from sensei, e.g. a free KH bookmark and postcard with sensei’s signature. More information can be found at:  http://caramarubox.com/
