In this featured picture, I introduce an extremely important character in the Orisace Universe even though he is not the main protagonist of the series he is in. From one of my series titled Sukitto-5, this individual (on the left) is known as Maebure Asagiro, a man who would become immortalized in Orisacean legend despite not being chosen by Eca'Siro by fate. In Sukitto-5, Maebure is an up-and-coming manga artist in the city of Sachiro Park who befriends Emi Yuyuko, a young woman who begins an all-girls music group in high school. These two unlikely people would not meet until after the performance of "A Shy Flower", the group's second song. Maebure in his own daily life strives to break into the comic industry using the abilities he has forged by himself through the efforts and feedback of others. With the support of his own friends, he pursues the goal to make his own series known not just in Sachiro City but throughout the world.
In high school, Maebure and Emi are not friends at all due to circumstances such as similarities and friendly gossip. So they do not hang around each other in this time. But one of the experiences between them is when Maebure is walking and Emi suddenly bumps into him by accident, causing him to drop his belongings and his papers sent sliding across the floor. Here, Emi picks up and has a look at one of his drawings. She is amazed by his stylized illustrations and compliments him. He nervously thanks her and walks away in the other direction. The page that was viewed by Emi was Maebure's plans to create: The Adventures of Android, Flexpa, and Sir Vampire (a series that would become reality in the Orisace universe later in their lives). Maebure bases the characters in his comic series off of the people in his own life, two obviously are Harbinger, which is himself, and Kolaida, who is based on Emi Yuyuko. In the near future following their school days, Maebure develops an interest in the aspiring singer of the Sukitto-5, which is hinted in The Adventures of Android, Flexpa, and Sir Vampire because Harbinger and Kolaida have a suspicious relationship.
But there is one problem that stand before him and Emi. That one is: Is it possible they can be together, an artist and a singer? Maebure nevertheless doesn't doubt himself in this pursuit because he will go against all odds to make it happen. He will show the world what he can do...
He is also Gentleman Asagiro's father (Main protagonist from my series titled Birds of a Bird Cage)
