Hello everyone! It has been ages since our last journal entry here. We haven't been active for two years now in Deviant Art.

Two years ago, we starterd a Euro Tour promoting our manga series R.u.N. and last year we begun the production for our new mini manga series, Sphere of Salvation (S.o.S.).

We know that we haven't uppload any pages from S.o.S., but you can order a copy of it by supporting our Kickstarter campaign here: kck.st/2mQfjMc

S.o.S. Kickstarter campaign was funded in under 24h and we will soon announce the stretch goals.

A synopsis of S.o.S.:

S.o.S. is an espionage seinen manga that takes place in the era of Cold War. Ken, Dr. Hattori and Rosa, three different characters are forced to team up in order to protect Sphere of Salvation, a new technological miracle that is capable of changing the course of history. Whoever holds S.o.S. and masters all its hidden forces, will rule planet Earth.

Thank you for supporting our projects all these years. We are trully blessed with so many fans. We hope you will continue supporting our projects, even if the production is slow. ^^

Hello everyone!

We have some amazing news!

First of all we would like to inform you that our city, Thessaloniki has been voted as the European Youth Capital for 2014. You can see this link for more information.

www.thessaloniki2014.gr/

The Municipality and the Cultural Section of Thessaloniki have chosen our team to make a manga one-shot for the European Youth Capital, where we will portray the city. The main characters of this one-shot will be the characters of RuN and some of the characters of Mythos.

This one-shot will be published by the Municipality of Thessaloniki and it will be printed as a tankōbon, which will be shared free of charge in all the events regarding Thessaloniki European Youth Capital.

In order to promote manga culture in Greece the Municipality of Thessaloniki and the Japanese Embassy of Greece organized with us a two day event, called "RuN Thessaloniki & Japanese Anime Marathon Day" on 21st and 22nd September.

In 21st September the attendants could enjoy our artist :iconsmolb: live sketching and choreographies of Naruto and RuN from the Parkour Academy in Thessaloniki. There were also an Origami workshop, a cosplay workshop, two shops with Anime and Manga collectibles, and a DJ who played J Music all day long. It was a fantastic experience. You can check the videos below.

Choreographies: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U4tlz…

At the same day our team gave a speech in the Central Hall of the Municipality of Thessaloniki, about the manga culture, the world wide manga industry and the independent scene of manga and comics. In our lecture, the Mayor of Thessaloniki, Mr Boutaris, made an introduction as Sanji from One Piece. You can check the video below and watch our Mayor as Sanji and our lecture (the video is in Greek)

Lecture: www.youtube.com/watch?v=drYytK…

In 22nd of September the attendants could watch in cinemas the six following Anime Films provided by the Japan Foundation:
- Chibi Maruko-Chan
- Galaxy Express 999
- The Prince of the Sun: Hols' Great Adventure
- The Girl who Leapt Through Time
- Frantz Kafka's A Country Doctor

It was an amazing experience for us to participate in the organization of such an event in our country. We also feel really honoured to make a manga for the European Youth Capital! We hope everyone will enjoy it!

Hello everyone!

Some great things happened the past months.

First of all our artist :iconsmolb: has participated in LSCC 2013 with a great success. You can read in his journal about his "adventures" in London.

On 7th & 8th of March the Japanese Embassy in Greece has organized a two-day event about Japanese Pop Culture. They invited us to do a lecture about the International Manga Industry and the process of making R.u.N.  It was a fantastic experience and a great honor for us to participate in such a huge event. For more information and photos about this event you can find in the official site of the Japanese Embassy in Greece here: www.gr.emb-japan.go.jp/portal/… (the article is written in Japanese) or check our FB page www.facebook.com/Mangatellers for some photos of the event.

Last but not least the well known site Mangahelpers has started a series of interviews with various artists. We were picked for the first interview. It was fantastic! We were surprised that they chose us.. It is a big honor for us to be a member of such great community as Mangahelpers! You can read the whole interview here mangahelpers.com/news/details/…

Oh! Almost forgot to mention that R.u.N. Chapter:05 is on the way! ^^

Until then, cheers! :D
Hello again! :D

We wish a happy and creative new year to everyone!

There was a slight delay in the release of the fourth chapter of R.u.N., but we somehow managed to stick to our program. We are happy to announce that the fourth chapter of R.u.N., called "Team Ninja!" is released in our official manga reader!

The title of the fourth chapter has nothing to do with the Team Ninja studio behind the Ninja Gaiden & the Doa series, so we hope it isn't as misleading as it sounds. ^^

You can read the fourth chapter here: mangatellersmt.com/reader/read…

We hope you will enjoy WiFi Wars as much as we have done! Of course we will wait for your feedback. At least we hope that we have managed to meet up with your expectations.

More to come soon! ^_^
First of all we would like to wish a Happy New Year to everyone.

After a lot of discussion and organization of our schedules, we have come to the point where we are able to release our first manga series, R.u.N with our artist :iconsmolb:. We will release the first four chapters of R.u.N. (Remember Ur Nature) on-line in our site (www.mangatellers.com) and they will be free for everyone to enjoy them in 2012. Each chapter contains twenty pages, except from the first one which will be thirty pages. According to our plan, the schedule will be the following.

On April 2012: R.u.N Chapter 01
On June 2012: R.u.N. Chapter 02
On September 2012: R.u.N. Chapter 03
On December 2012: R.u.N. Chapter 04

The chapters will be in the traditional manga form, which means that you can read them from right to left. They will be in English and the sound effects will be in Japanese. We have plans to release them in more languages in the future.

Also in March the final results of the Morning International Comic Competition will be announced and we can finally share with everyone our one shot, with which we have participated there.

Until we release the chapters of R.u.N., you can check more information about the plot and the characters in our site.
The results of the March Contest is out and the winner is the 22-years old mangaka 熊本(Google translates it as Kumamoto). You can read his oneshot only in Japanese here: shonenjump.com/j/manga-shou/tr….

We congratulate him / her (?) for winning a position in Wekkly Shonen Jumps' official site. ^^

We may have lost in this competition, but we don't stop here. We are planning to send our one-shot to the Morning International Comic Competition held by Kodansha INC.morningmanga.com/micc/rule_e.h…. This contest is in an international scale and according to the rules of the contest the text of the story can be in English. So there will be no problems there. We may present two or three pages (but without text) from our oneshot in the near future. Unfortunatelly the results of this contest will be announced in December of 2011. Until then, we can not reveal the full manga.

On another note our artist :iconsmolb: has made a fan art pic with the characters of RuN portrayed as Japanese Red Cross Society Members in order to support and promote the cause of Red Cross. You can view it here: fav.me/d3h3xl4.

Of course we would like to say that we are not doing this for commercial reasons. We are a non governmental, non commercial, independent Greek art team which makes manga and supports the Japanese culture here in Greece. What we are trying to do with this picture is to make people both domestically and internationally support the efforts of Japanese Red Cross Society. Please check their site: www.jrc.or.jp/english/index.ht…
First of all we want to send our condolences to all the people in Japan, who lost their families and their loved ones from the tragic incident of the earthquake that happened. We hope that Japan will soon recover and regain their previous state of living conditions. If anyone would like to support the people in Japan, they could donate some money to the Red Cross. american.redcross.org/site/Don…

According to our plan on March 16th, 2011 we managed to complete our first one – shot manga story. On March 17th, 2011 we sent the one - shot to the Editorial Department of Shueisha Inc, in order to participate in the monthly contest of “JUMP Treasure New Artist Prize” of the Wekkly Shonen Jump Magazine which takes place in March. According to the Weekly Jump’s website the judge for the March contest will be the famous Japanese novelist and manga writer Nisio Isin. Nisio Isin and Akira Akatsuki’s ongoing manga “Medaka Box” shonenjump.com/e/rensai/medaka…, which started in May, 2009, has become one of the biggest manga hits in manga industry and you can read the weekly chapters in Weekly Shonen Jump or if you are interested in the whole story you can buy the nine volumes.

Following the requirements of the contest, unfortunately we can’t reveal anything from our one - shot until May, when the results are announced. The text of our story is in English and the sound effects in Japanese, in order for our one - shot to look more like a traditional manga. The reason why we didn’t make all our work in Japanese is that it was quite expensive and we couldn’t afford it. We hope that our use of the English language will not be a problem to our participation in this contest.

The contest’s deadline is on March 31st, 2011 and the contest will take place in Tokyo. According to the Post Office, our work will arrive to the proper destination on March 27th, 2011. It remains to be seen whether the contest will actually take place due to the fact that Japan and Tokyo especially face problems, because of the earthquakes.

Of course our least worry is the contest right now. We wish for Japan’s state and citizen’s living conditions to get better as fast as possible.

EDIT: Akira Toriyama has uploaded a message to YouTube. According to Shueisha Inc. by viewing this video, all proceeds will be donated to the victims of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. The donations collected will be reported on "www.shueisha.co.jp" as well as
magazines published by Shueisha Inc. All advertising earnings of this message will be given to the stricken area of East Japan great earthquake. Please watch the video and leave a comment.
