So I wrote something meta-like about a panel in the last chapter from an artist's perspective.
Kinda AkiHika, some spoilers for the end of the manga (duh)

Part 1: Sapiente

A Sai-focused prequel to Hikaru no Joe


"Sapiente is growing desperate. Angelo believes him to be a figment of his broken mind and pays him as little attention as possible. Why was he given this second chance to complete his work, only to be bound to an engineer who has no interest in coffee, or him? Was this punishment for what he had done?"


Wow, this Sai-focused prequel sure took a long time and got way longer than I expected! It's a big change in tone and focus from the Hikaru no Joe AU series so far, but it does directly relate to the main story.

You can also read this as a stand-alone, as long as you're okay with Sai being the ghost of an 18th century Italian barista, but it works best read after at least chapter 3 of Hikaru no Joe. Just please be aware that this story isn't as fluffy as the Hikaru-focused main story and it touches on some serious themes. Please see this end note if you want further (somewhat spoiler-y) information about potential triggers.

When I set out to explore Sai's back-story and to create an original character, a quasi-Honinbo Shuusaku, for my barista AU, I had no idea that it would turn out to be longer than the main story. I hope it works for you! Part II will be posted next week.

Pairing: Sai/Angelo (original character)

Hikaru no Joe

Chapter 3: Common Grounds


"Touya! I'd like to experiment with the tamping speed on his smug face," Hikaru snarled. "Anyway, I can't imagine him making latte art. He has his style, I have mine. I don’t need to copy him." Or you, Hikaru added to himself.

HnG is finally getting a coffee shop AU! Enjoy.

Hikaru no Joe (Chapter 1: A Fresh Brewginning)


After the ghost of a coffee-obsessed 18th century Italian barista starts haunting him, Shindou Hikaru tries to get a job at Café Meijin but is roasted during his interview by percolating protege Touya Akira. Afterwards, Shindou vows to prove his potential as a master barista and Touya's rival. The pressure is on!

But there are many forms of greatness and many paths to the perfect cup. It will take both of them, with their divergent styles, to create the divine brew.

Pairings: Hikaru/Touya eventually
Rating: PG
Word Count: 2,954
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply (do terrible puns count?)
