On Pillowfort, there is a community dedicated to the ship: juhaku
. Name is simple but descriptive.
Truly, Madly, Deeply
aka the Juhaku Zine that never happened. Organized in 2017, the zine was supposed to have artwork and fanfics with the ship, and the theme was fairy tales and fantasy. Multiple ways of release were planned for the zine: digital, physical print, and physical print with extra merch. Many people created work for the zine, but the project was ultimately cancelled. Reasons were apparently the difficulty to get the prints and disturbances in the organizers' personal lives. There was a promise of releasing the digital zine for free, but nothing ever came out of it and those in charge of the project are not active on their accounts anymore. Some people have posted their artworks that were intended for the zine on Tumblr and deviantArt. The profits made from the zine were supposed to be donated to The Trevor Project charity, which specializes in providing resources, crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ+ youth.
The zine was sold on Tictail. The details:
Digital zine only ($7): .pdf of the zine
Physical zine only ($11): 1 copy of the zine
Gold bundle ($16): 1 physical zine, 1 random postcard (in holographic or gold foil), 1 holographic die-cut sticker
Fantasia bundle ($26): 1 physical zine, 1 digital zine, 2 postcards (holographic and gold foil), 1 holographic die-cut sticker, 2 clear glitter acrylic charms
The contributors to the zine were listed as follows:
Artists: abimatsu, AIRISTATLE, Asura, Beamie, bracari-iris, Echo, EeNii, guntaabee, Hebes, Jinsei, kurapixel, Lati, Sawyer, ViolaKey, Viviana Di Chiara, Wiltking
Authors: ChiekaHakuen, PreseaMoon, setosdarkness
The cancellation of the zine was announced with the following update on the project's Tumblr blog: Hi all, apologies for the very late update and long period of silence. After careful discussion between mods, we have unfortunately decided to cancel all zine orders. For a quick breakdown of what’s happened: At first, we had problems with one of the suppliers disappearing. And after that, a combination of school, work, and worsening mental health had pushed finding a replacement, as well as dealing with inquiries and providing updates, to a lower priority. Since things aren’t looking to get any better soon, rather than spending even more time to complete orders and causing uncertainty and anxiety on all sides, we will be cancelling orders as an incomplete project and refunding everyone. The digital version of the zine will be released as pay-what-you-want as an apology for the delays. All profit will continue to go towards The Trevor Project. This also ensures that anyone who missed preorders, or any future fans of Juhaku, will have access to the zine. Refunds and the digital zine will go out within 1 to 2 weeks.
All contributors are now free to publicly post their work if they wish to do so. The merch that has already been made will either be distributed among contributors, or sold as a bundle separate from the digital zine if there is anyone interested in the merch alone. We are still discussing.
Thank you for all the support for the past months, and we sincerely apologize for any disappointment we’ve caused. This has been a passion project for us, especially since the fandom is relatively small, as well as a learning experience. Hopefully if Magi season 3 ever happens, there will be other people who can bring a Juhaku zine to completion.
As mentioned earlier, the digital version of the zine was never released and the organizers proceeded to disappear from the face of the earth.
