Welcome to Ryusuke Chayama's Patreon.

This Patreon launched in July 2015 into uncharted territory. Our mission: an original manga from character designer Ryusuke Chayama! 

Chayama has taken us into a dystopian world through the eyes of Ren, a young girl with vampire-inspired super powers, and Shu, a guy thrown into the deep end as her protector.

Patreon backers get high res original artwork. Mammoth 70 MB photoshop files. Rough drafts. Color and black/white.

And maybe even more importantly, Patreons are invited to be part of the story development process. We are in the process of reaching out to each Patreon individually to talk through ideas about Ren, Shu, their adversaries, and their world. Each conversation brings new shading to the characters and extends the possibilities of the plot.

Intrigued? We invite you to join the crew.

Here's some background on the project:

Character designer for dir. Yasuhiro Yoshiura works:

About this Patreon

  • Each month, Chayama is drawing 1 full-color illustration and several b/w illustrations
  • Chayama and his producer Ryosuke Inagake are creating an original story through the illustrations with the ultimate goal of creating a manga
  • Patreon supporters are invited into the creative process through updates, polls, and Q&As

Introducing Chayama's producer Ryosuke Inagaki

Chayama is extraordinarily shy, and this Patreon is only possible because of the involvement of his long-time producer Ryosuke Inagaki.

Inagaki's credits
  • Producer: Harmonie
  • Production Producer: Patema Inverted, Hacka Doll PV, Inou Battle Within Everyday Life,, Power Plant No. 33 (Japan Animator Expo), Yozakura Quartet - Hoshi no umi
  • Production Supervisor: Kill la Kill, Samurai Champloo, Tetsujin 28 (2004), Spiral
  • Visual Works Production Assistant: FINAL FANTASY 7 ADVENT CHILDREN & DIRGE of CERBERUS, FINAL FANTASY 12, KINGDOM HEARTS 2 FinalMix 
  • Production Desk: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone, Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
  • Project Manager: Inferno Cop

Inspired by the Time of EVE Kickstarter

This Patreon is inspired by the tremendous response of Time of EVE's Kickstarter backers to Chayama's doujinshi artbook, which we offered as an add-on to the campaign. Ann Yamamoto/Pied Piper, Inc., the ToE Kickstarter producer, is joining Chayama and producer Inagaki to build on that experience and the connections we felt with supporters to collaboratively create illustrations, story universe, and ultimately an original manga.

We welcome you to Join us for the journey!
