is a free-to-view webzine dedicated to the pairing of Bokuto Koutarou and Akaashi Keiji (BokuAka) which shall be available for viewing on April 5, 2021 through May 4, 2021 (JST).

    What is this about?

    Devotion is a digital exhibit of works (i.e. comic strips, fanwork illustrations, short fics) featuring Bokuto and Akaashi in celebration of BokuAka Day 2021.
    All works are to be uploaded on a dedicated website of the pair. The website will be launched on April 5, 2021, BokuAka Day (12:00 AM, JST)
    The running theme of this event is “devotion”, deriving from Akaashi’s setter style kanji character “尽瘁” which means “giving one's all to.” Works are encouraged to be canon-compliant, set in high school or post-time skip, but AUs are permitted. All works will be SFW.

    What to expect?

    This is a non-profit project, the website viewing will be free to everyone to access.
    All submitted works will be uploaded to a dedicated website for BKAK day, but contributors have the freedom to post their works on their personal social media platforms.
    A digital anthology shall be distributed to the contributors once the project wraps. Making these copies into physical ones will be the choice and the responsibility of the contributors themselves; the mods will simply send printer-friendly versions of the zine in addition to the digital PDF. Contributors should not redistribute or sell these copies to anyone out of respect for everyone part of this project.
