I've always been deeply influenced by anime and manga since a young age. One of the first shows I ever watched was Trigun. I used to come home and secretly watch it because my family didn't like anime. When my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer and eventually passed away it was anime and manga that got me through the period of time in my life, and without it I don't know what would have happened, as I was showing signs of extreme depression.
I think I started writing at 14, and had become very closed off and cynical in school. Unfortunately, I wouldn't do my work and I didn't want to be in school. One of my teachers, let's call her Mrs. A, started reading to us in class and would also allow us to choose stories to read, afterwards we were given time to write a story of our own. I fell in love with this, when I finally made it to college, I took a creative writing class, and it was the only class I got an A in. I also got to start my own writing group with some fantastic people.
There's a story I've been thinking about since I was around 18. (I'm nearly 24 now.) The story is something between a psychological thriller and a shonen or seinen series. The events that take place in the beginning of the story have our hero as a reactionary character, but as the audience gets to know him, he gets to know himself, and it is at this point that he takes control of his life. It's a story that both capsulates grief, happiness, and glory. I know this description sounds vague, but that's kind of the idea. I'm trying to save you guys from spoilers.
So this is the part where I ask you to support me in my dream of transforming this, as well as many other ideas, into mangas. I would love it if you supported me and I look forward to providing the best material that I can.
