  I lettered and did touch-up for the English language release of Mitsuru Hattori's Sankarea from volume 2 until the final volume, 11. (I'd planned to letter volume 1 as well, but was moving to Japan at the time and was crazy busy.) It was a fun project and the start of a long working relationship with Kodansha Comics.

I feel like this series is where I really started to hit my stride as a letterer. I opted to work with a smaller selection of fonts, to keep things consistent, as well as making more expressive sound effects and dialog lettering. When possible, I tried to match the feel of the original Japanese lettering. For some areas of the book, I used a font that I made with my own handwriting.
