Akina (明菜), is an illustrator and movie producer most notable for her Houkago Stride PV which achieved over a million views. She is also in charge of character designing as well as illustrating most of the Mikagura School Suite merchandise and novels.

Background

Akina is a pixiv artist who has participated in several pixiv yearbooks. She is known for her colorful illustrations, as well as flat-colored yet detailed style, which is often described as high-sense by many.[1]
In December 2012, following the Houkago Stride PV release, she was assigned to be the person in charge of illustrating the Mikagura School Suite series by Last Note..[2]
In the middle of making the Izayoi Seeing PV, her aviutl program crashed so hard they had to delay the release date from the end of summer to September 19th.[3] Recently, she made an ask.fm and tumblr account.

Congratulatory Comments

"Congratulations on the first Mikagura School Suite novel release! I'm Akina, who's in charge of the illustrations and surely needed God's help while running through the deadline... I drew the illustrations while listening to Houkago Stride. Thank you~"

—Second novel comment
"Congratulations on Mikagura School Suite's third novel release! Sorry if there are so many unsightly things here and there since I'm in a rush... Thank you... Anyway, I'm really curious, why Kyoma-senpai who is actually good natured was lunged into Asuhi-kun in such a way.. Was he not in a good mood? I guess senpai's moodiness has caused a trauma for Asuhi-kun, huh."
