History and Art by Tirotata
When a hungry mangaka suddenly finds a girl who looks like the spitting image of the heroine of his own series on his doorstep, it seems like a dream come true! But if only it were as simple as her drawings coming to life – this girl turns out to be actually a gahi, a yokai who can only appear human by turning a work of art into human skin and wearing it like a glove ?! “Without your art… my body will become all weird…”
Thus begins the new life of an artist with a pretty girl (?) under his roof.
Gahi-chan! is a manga about a self-aware mangaka that is hilarious and sure to be a hit with adult readers! Quirky, cute and sexy, Gahi-chan! is a must-read for Yen Press ecchi manga fans, such as Interspecies reviewers and To save the world, can you wake up the next morning with a demi-human?
