Kuro wants to know, what Devilish thing would you do to get your hands on a signed advanced copy of Tanpopo GN2 with an original sketch inside? Replace every Yahoo Answer with cryptic hieroglyphs? Fill Old Faithful with cream soda? Fake spiders in the cookie jar that come to life if anyone but you tries to sneak one?

Tell Kuro! He’s listening through Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr & Instagram. Tell him what your Devilish Deed is and tag it #TanpopoAndKuro #DevilishThingsContest

On Friday May 23rd by the time the clock strikes Midnight, he will chose his favourite Devilish thing of them all, and see an advanced copy of Tanpopo GN2 with an original sketch inside spirited your way.
