Too Kawaii to Die is a zine dedicated to the post-post-post-american anime culture world of cute meets scary, sad, weird, and dumb.

It is run by Zozxox.tumblr.com

 

The #5 proof got here and it looks great! Launch will probably be tomorrow :)

Once again Ka-Blam’s poor customer service never ceases to amaze me.

In the past you could order a free proof copy. I would order this, they would let me know if there were any issues with it before sending it off.

Now they’re charging for the proof, and they did not even check my files until I had paid for it (and I didn’t know that was the case)

So yeah, just corrected some minor technical issues and paid for the proof.

TKTD#5 soon?

I should also probably mention that this will be the last issue of TKTD. I’ll make a big post about it after #5 is out (don’t worry I’m starting up a new project :))

Corrections have been made and the zine if off to the printers!

I forgot to mention this but YOU CAN STILL SUBMIT MUSIC

Turns out there isn’t really much processing to do so as long as you submit before the zine’s official release it’ll get in there

Thanks for all your hard work!

Hoi, if you didn't get an email for final approval does that mean you didn't make the cut? And if so will you still make it into the online version? :0

You should have gotten an email? What’s your current email maybe I did it wrong

Apparently Indyplanet is having some technical difficulties so if you’ve tried to buy a comic lately and gotten an error I am looking into it.

TKTD#5 has been sent out to contributing artists for final approval so expect it soon.

durrzozo:

Well we’ve passed the deadline. I’ll let all the excellent submitters to this issue know as it is put together.

Oops wrong blog

Reminder that the 1st of next month is the FINAL FOR REAL THIS TIME deadline.

If you’re not done by then you’ll have to wait till TKTD#6

Current Guidelines

In the independent zine spirit of sharing and caring and so forth, here are the guidelines for a comics and illustration zine called Too Kawaii To Die. (Gif warning for those who might be sensitive to bright flashy colors, their background is a little intense.)

If you’re an artist, and that description appeals to you, get in touch with them! They’re doing neat things.

Thank you so much! To everyone following Too Kawaii to Die please go check out Giana’s zine, it seems like a super fun project.

I totally forgot to include that Too Kawaii to Die will feature a musical component just like the last oneGuidelines for this are pretty simple, submit any genre of music or maybe even spoken word or soundscape in a lossless .wav or .flacSince it’s music, adhering to theme guidelines are pretty loosey-goosey. If you feel the spirit of your piece fits in then it’s ALL GOOD.Listen to the first EP here: https://tookawaiitodie.bandcamp.com/


Dont forget that TKTD accepts music too! This EP will be merged with the last for a physical release!
