creative team behind Sakura Pakk believes that female readers are into more than
just romance, beauty, and style. We wanted to produce an original publication that
depicts women in far more diverse roles and situations”, states eigoMANGA’s
publisher, Austin Osueke.
The stories in Sakura Pakk contain compelling Original English Language (OEL) manga

friendship, self-confidence in addition to serious topics such as sexual harassment,
and teenage depression.
