No one reads journals. Hekla, I rarely do. But I feel like ranting to myself. xD
My parents won't let me draw anything until the 15th of October. And I mean ANYTHING. To get me started focused on uni, they say. I think I know how a sorceress felt during a witch hunt, but I'll live.
And there's this contest on blog.mangazen.ro/articol/215/
. Almost a week of voting left, it's terrible. o.o"
My ideal top:
1. SUMMER CELEBRATION
Best. Graphics. Also, funny moments that kept me reading until, to my horror, I realised I...finished. I wanted more. I'm glad the ending showed Ceto's energy bar, it gave the manga more realism and I was...relieved, yes, relieved that it wasn't trying to explain Atlantis sleeping with the fish!
2. LOST DAYS/9ORE
Not so crazy about slice-of-life in general, but Lost days managed to pull it off quite well - I also liked how he/she coloured hair. Pity the ending felt a little rushed, I kept wondering how the last page would've looked if coloured : was that picture of the red-haired model used before or of the brunette he secretly thought of? 9 ore was kind of cute, graphics pretty good compared to most. Surprisingly few noticed that the reaper had the hair, the mole, the nails like Eliza. I'm pretty sure it was her.
3. SCHAUSSBURG KNIGHT/ ONE OF THE ABOVE
Cute chibi-s, I didn't expect this! It's sad how the faces looked at times and the raw-looking lines fit only the fight scenes, imo. Also, enjoyed the theory, but...at the end I was more curious why his wife believed in his "alternative theory of history" than anything. >.<"
4. A SEASONAL CONFESSION
Pretty enjoyable, although Cana looked like a rip-off of Sui-Feng from Bleach and the ending only made me lose all respect for the leading chara. Unknown bishie didn't save the day either. v.v
5. HUNTED TO THE LIMIT/ RMDC 1164258
The first for the bishes, brainless action and humour (biiig minus for the plot hole at the end), the other for the cuteness, the stairway metaphor (loved it!)...it's just sad it suffered from the "jacket-syndrome" (how a friend of mine calls unfortunate screen toning).
6. ONE OF THE ABOVE
I'd like to find these in this year's book. I'm sorry about Perfect Heart, if only it were coloured and had better paneling! I'd read it again gladly. Also enjoyed Black Ink.
One of those 20 entries is mine - I think it stands a good chance of getting in top 6 and be published. [:
