Samurai Chef Volume 2 Kickstarter by Aisha Anime

samurai chef vol 2 kickstarter

Mayamada's new Kickstarter is up and doing really well. It reached its funding goal and also became a staff pick within 3 days!

Samurai Chef Volume 1 was released in 2013. 

A tasty mix of action, comedy and amazing culinary creations, the story follows a cooking show set in a fantasy television network with an all-animal cast. 

It all begins as a simple cooking competition, but becomes something else when the food is turned into food monsters.

In Samurai Chef Volume 2 more elite chefs have joined the battle with their own food monsters cooked to perfection. Is the Samurai Chef ready for the fight to come?

Our goal is to raise funds to cover printing costs for the combined edition of Samurai Chef containing volumes 1 and 2. This will be released in November 2014.

The book will be a 150-page graphic novel printed on high quality paper with a beautiful 300GSM silk stock cover and a perfect bound spine.

The book will be released in November
