Preview: ‘Bounce Back’ OGN By Misako Rocks!
by Brendan M. Allen
A story about friendship, new beginnings, and doing what you love, no matter what. The all-new middle-grade OGN, Bounce Back, written, illustrated, and colored by New Jersey-based manga artist Misako Rocks!, is out next Tuesday, November 16th.
‘Lilico’s life in Japan is going well. She has great friends and is the captain of the school’s basketball team. She’s happy!
Then comes her parents’ news: they’re moving to America! Before she knows it, Lilico finds herself in Brooklyn, New York, forced to start all over. And that won’t be easy with her closest friends thousands of miles away or a school bully who immediately dislikes her.
Luckily, anime-loving Nala and Henry eventually befriend Lilico and with help from them—along with her guardian spirit who looks a lot like her cat, Nicco—Lilico just might figure out where she fits in.’
