Amy Tasukada on her new release, Happy Merry Christmas
Did you know that one of the Christmas traditions in Japan is to eat fried chicken with your lover? It started in the 70s with a huge marketing campaign by KFC. It would be an understatement to say it was a success.
Now people pre-order fried chicken meals from KFC a month in advance and spend around $40 on a bucket, Christmas cake, and sides. Of course, other stores offer up fried chicken but KFC is the one on everyone’s mind.
I’ve always been fascinated by different cultural traditions, especially those from Japan. Ever since I learned about this secular celebration with fried chicken, it has tickled the back of my mind. Eventually, I had to write a story with the holiday in it, so I wrote Happy Merry Christmas.
The story is a sweet romance between Aoi, an erotic voice actor and Sato, a huge robot anime nerd. If you like heart-warming characters, romance that makes you smile, and a pinch of holiday drama, then you’ll love this tale of Christmas joy.
