CyberConnect2 Selling Illustrations To Support Japan Earthquake Victims

By Ishaan . July 24, 2012 . 4:30pm

Over a year later, CyberConnect2 are still conducting charity projects to support victims of Japan’s 2011 Touhoku earthquake. This time, in order to help support earthquake victims, CyberConnect2 will be selling original illustrations on Gumroad, an online e-commerce service.


All profits gained from this initiative will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross Society, CC2 informed Siliconera in an e-mail. The charity initiative, dubbed the “Mamoru Reconstruction Assistance Project,” is being conducted in English, and you can find the illustrations on sale here.


As of May 2012, CC2 say they’ve donated 284,076 yen ($3,633) in total. This isn’t the first time they’ve carried out disaster relief activities. When the earthquakes occurred last year, CyberConnect2 opened their studio up to the general public to accommodate people that had been affected. Then, in April 2011, they conducted a disaster relief fund where they donated all profits to the Japanese Red Cross.

    No matter what people say about CC2’s way of working or about their games, I freakin love them. They’ve been always listening to the fans, and give the fans what they ask for. Also, they seem humble and down to earth and it’s easy to get in touch with them even for non-Japanese people. And now, even after a year, they’re still raising money to help the victims of the Touhoku earthquake. Love their games, love their business model, and above all, love their spirit. I’ll defiantly keep supporting whatever they put out.

     I’d personally love to see more Solatorobo art, but I can understand why it’s Mamoru-kun, given the purpose of the charity raising they have going on. I’m tempted to invest in one of those pieces just to donate.

    I bought the art of Mamoru-kun under the rainbow for my iPod, it looks really nice. I really loved playing SolatoRobo and always liked Mamoru-kun, he’s just a fun little character to see in the game.

    I’m glad I was able to buy the wallpaper and just for 100 yen. This was real nice of CyberConnect2. It was real easy to be a part of all this too, the instruction were easy to follow and the English on the site was for the most part well done.

    This is example of CSR to their fullest there.^_^ Really happy for CC2 there and hope that they will be able to do well there.^_^

  • CasualGamer

    This makes me want to support the company. Cashcom should take notice.

  • NoOneSeesWhatWeSee

    Exactly what are the affected areas and citizens in Japan like right now? I haven’t heard about them in a long time and the lack of update on how they’re doing is bizarre.

    I never hear any updates about how they’re doing, even though they are surely still in need of help.

  • Lionxie

    I love the Little Tail Bronx series and I do wish for the wellbeing for disaster victims so count me in!

    I bought works from Japanese Artists off Gumroad before and i wish more of them were willing to sell on it. Please support them!
