            [wpcf-summary-description] => This zine is the first-prize winner of the Collaborative Challenge on Young Poets Network in 2021. It was edited by Lydia Wei and Em Power.

In her introduction, Em writes, "This zine started as a joke between me and my co-editor and bloomed into something incredibly cool. The joke was something along the lines of: haha, aren’t poetry zines meant to be about, like, artsy topics, what if we did one on anime boys? Then the joke became, no, imagine if we actually made a whole zine just about how much we love anime boys. Then the joke became: I need to make a collage of Tetsuo from Akira surrounded by 100 gecs lyrics lest I die unfulfilled." The zine uses illustration and poetry to explore love, grief, growing up, fandom and more.
