I'm commenting on a thread that is technically answered, sue me.

@Crackhead Yikes, one of the booze writers huh. Hemingway would be proud. Seriously though I wish I could make great work like that. It'd be a bit worth the tradeoff.
Want the money? Want the fame? Want to sell your stuff?

I will give you one.
All you have to do is look at what the hyper popular zombie genre does wrong 100% of the time(these days) and fix it.

What I'm saying is that once bitten they should not look like they have been horribly dead for a long time. When they die/return they should look almost normal until they have rotted. That is days/weeks before it shows. Cover a bite and eat people when/where you can. Serial killer zombies for a few days. Then they sort of get drunk, then they sort of get senile, then they are just drive.
Their brain works great to begin with and only goes with the decay. If you want to sell to the high crowd say your work was designed to talk about Alzheimers
You get fast zombies to start out, to please the brain dead drama crowd. They deteriorate down to slow and plodding to please the Romero "it talks about the inevitability of death you morons!" crowd. The whole time when talking to the high crowd you get to explain how it... Well you have to keep that secret, otherwise they will not argue about it forever and keep it famous.

Zombie Loa wanted me to tell you this.

Develop Your Story / Re: Superhuman Ability-Type Manga Idea
« on: February 16, 2019, 07:49:04 PM »
Oh boy, tough crowd. I guess neither of these ideas are quite what anyone is looking for LOL I guess I'll keep at it.
No, I'm the tough crowd.

Seven college individuals, all with entirely different personalities and nothing in common, become friends
You are stealing from Hollywood's septic tank. What you are plagiarizing is not human behavior. People like people who are like themselves and dislike people who are different. That was the idea behind The Breakfast Club and all the other garbage that copied it.
after receiving a suspicious note offering them a chance at a new life full of power and riches.
We have all Seen Enter the Dragon and everything that stole from it.
Each deals with the offer in their own way and they all eventually accept the proposal until one of them vanishes.  One after the next, they start to disappear from existence.
Dead horse, stop beating it.
When they awaken, they are inside some sort of stasis chamber filled with water (not sure what they are called ;P).  The room is empty and dark as they all come to.  One of them manages to break free of the chamber and releases the others.
we have only seen this 2-3,000x. Stop plagiarizing.

However, they begin to feel a dark presence surrounding them; watching them.  What they do not realize is that their lost friend is still very much alive and very angry.  They later discover that he was not killed but rather placed back into his chamber so that these scientists could continue their project of making controllable superhumans.  The lost friend is no longer responsive and his abilities have been heightened.
Larry sacrifices himself to save his friends and then hates his friends for it? When you steal please try to understand what you are stealing.
Larry sacrificed himself because he it was worth it to him to save his friends. HE DOESN'T HATE THEM LATER FOR IT. That is another bit that is stolen from "friend left behind"

Hey look scientists trying to give enemies super human powers rather than give them to themselves/cronies!..
Seen that a billion times and it is STUPID every time I see it re-plagiarized.

We can go through your work line by line and point out other plagiarists you stole from. If you want to impress bring us something new and not things we have seen other people steal before.
This is of course if you want to make something good.
If you just want to make something successful, go to TV Tropes, look up Shonen anime, and use it as a template. Steal steal steal, and remember you can have any amount of stupid as long is it milks the emotions.

As it is none of this piece is yours. All of it is other people's Legos. In Hollywood/anime it is all about copying. In the real world it is about creating.

And now you know what the tough crowd really is.

Anime Talk / Re: What do you want to see something new in anime?
« on: February 16, 2019, 07:08:19 PM »
For me, it would be, no more fanservice and ordinary highschool MC that becomes OP in the next few episodes. I'd rather have Death Note like anime series instead.
Real fan service (nudity) from the golden age? Or more modern "fan tease" (upskirt and swimsuits).
If you hate the real then I suggest therapy. That will hopefully get you past the misogyny that makes anime fans get profiled as creepy incels. Loving women is totally OK. Women are cool.

As for new? Kill the plagiarism. No more formulaic garbage.
ADA lawsuits forcing dub availability.

Anime Talk / Re: Your top five anime openings
« on: February 16, 2019, 07:03:41 PM »
I have been seeing a lot of people caring about openings lately online.. WTF? that is what skip is for.
What is with this new trend of caring about the music and recycle/spoiler at the beginning?

Anime Talk / Re: Which Anime series you are watching ?
« on: February 16, 2019, 07:02:12 PM »
Dub on Netflix. Amazon is so terrible you can't tell what is dub and mostly get mine fielded into sub.
Tonight a big pile of Diskotek just showed up. I finally get to see Area 88!

Anime Talk / Re: What is your all-time top 10 animes?
« on: February 16, 2019, 06:50:25 PM »
Just 10?
I have thousands of disks.
1. All of Satoshi Kon's stuff.
2. Otomo. yeah his stuff (well OK the one he was just an animator on is early golden age but not great).
We have passed 10.
3. Hayao Miyazaki, most of his stuff.
4. Mamoru Oshii, yeah his stuff (except Gundress, what a disaster)
5. Voices of a Distant Star. Maybe, all things considered, the greatest anime ever (1 dude made it).
6. Did anyone mention Cowboy Bebop? Seriously it took until Stein's Gate to even get a contender for greatest series.
7. NGE.. even though it will keep getting remade until the writer dies and probably still after that.
8. The Puppet Princess (30-45 min, go watch it.)
9. GITS. All of it.
10. As I should probably include a shonen fighting anime I will list the one that is not total trash. Shadow Skill.
11. Honorable mention to the director of Wolf Children and most of the good stuff coming out.
12. Oh and Photon for having the best character ever.
13. for cheese can I still add Riding Bean?

Excel Saga and Shin Chan should be mentioned but no one takes comedy seriously.

The worst, the bottom of the barrel.
1. Fencer of Minerva.
2. Any "Perfect" collection (from the bad old days). Perfect just meant "random episodes"
3. Any Naruto Bleach Z
4. SAO. OMG, WTF, you are the new Ewe Boll!.. only with profound brain damage.
5. SAO: their FPS garbage (gungale?). Even worse.
6. Fan tease garbage (like Love Hina). Fan support is a thing and that thing is not swim suits and upskirts.
7. Earthian.
8. Fushigi Yuugi
9. Gundress
10. Tokyo Ghoul. The return of Shinji's (NGE) whining.

@Crackhead Yikes, one of the booze writers huh. Hemingway would be proud. Seriously though I wish I could make great work like that. It'd be a bit worth the tradeoff.
Each piece I wrote in the colab was fueled by between 2 and 5 liters of vodka. The character Loa will not ride me until I get there. I'm not writing it any more, the Loa are.
In the colab I found that when I was far enough in, other writer's character's Loa would ride me.
You drink, you feel more energetic, you drink more, you feel more social, you drink more and you glow, you drink more and if you do not die the Loa show up... though from the tales people have told me about my being dead (cold, no pulse)  it is possible the Loa ride until dawn and then give your life back.

It does remind me of the questionnaire to Olympians. "If you could take a pill and win gold but would not live out the year, would you?" "Yes!" was ~100%

I do not love it like that. I have written in the past for flavor for games. I'm not a writer. The stories come out because I cannot escape them and the Loa will not be denied.

My book needs work, will it kill me this time?
The pain wizard scratches at the door and says he needs a book too. Will that book kill me? He tells me the story until he meets the 7th son of the fire god but he will not tell me more.. unless I let him ride. That could be death.. but I want to know what happens.

I'm not sure if I can share this here, but Google ain't helpful in this area... But I had eleven copies of my comic Astron's Crusaders sent to me so I could sell them. Thing is outside of convention artist allies, I don't know where else I can sell them. Any suggestions?
11 copies?
In elementary school we went door to door for that kind of thing.

Your post is from Mar last year, did I already shred your writing? If not, would you like me to?

General Manga writer discussions / Re: Turn-offs-Writers and Artists
« on: February 16, 2019, 05:35:28 PM »
Admittedly, I have't been here for too long, and I also haven't worked with a ton of people, so if any of this is wrong or you disagree, don't hesitate to say so. I've worked with a few writers and artists alike in the last little while, and it can be difficult knowing who to work with and who to turn down. If you're anything like me, you might poke around on a person's profile for awhile before you decide-and there are some major turn-offs I've found, not just here but anywhere where writers and artists gather. Here are my big ones:

1-Spelling/Grammar. This one probably gets under my skin the most, especially when someone is a writer. Though there are obviously reasons why someone isn't adept with language sometimes, when I see a writer make more than one or two posts with awful grammar or spelling, I'm immediately going to think that this person's writing will be of the same quality. It blows my mind how many writers on the internet make posts like this and assume people will choose them over someone else. I don't mean a spelling error here or there either-the entire post is full of mistakes. This somewhat applies to artists, but not in the same way.
Mom was an English masters before she was an author.. Well OK the book she wrote at 14-15 got her her agent (it was terrible) but she had her masters before she got published.
This meant spelling was my father's preferred form of domestic abuse. "LOL your 8 year old son beat your score in Boggle! 168 IQ HAHA! Of course he lost badly to me..". It was cruel and nasty. Hurting somone's body is not as bad as killing their being.
Then there was my magnet school that gave us a completely different alphabet for the English language K-1.. crippling our spelling for life. Dyslexic wife (we do spelling by committee)..
Needless to say spelling/grammar Nazis are not friends of mine. Now people who can't use spell check.. they need to burn.

PS: Sometimes language changes. Never have an old masters in your language edit your stuff they will remove all flavor and life from it.

2-Narcissism. This one applies to both artists and writers. It also tends to go hand in hand with spelling and grammar issues. There's a difference between promoting your work and being narcissistic, or being honest and being narcissistic. There are a whole variety of different ways you see this, but it's usually evident someone's giving themselves too much credit when they go on about how much better they are than others or say their work is perfect-stuff like that. At the same time, don't be self-deprecating, or try not to be, because that's also a turn-off for anyone willing to work with you. Just be as honest as you can about your skill level, even if it means taking a step back to reevaluate your work.
Narcissism needs to be earned.
If Usane Bolt wants to show up on my porch with a 24 pack and explain how slow I am and how fast he is, he has earned it.

General Manga writer discussions / Re: Picking an idea to stick with
« on: February 16, 2019, 05:21:44 PM »

Anyway my question is when you have so many ideas, how do you pick one to focus on when you're constantly getting distracted with new and sometimes old ones?

I write the ones who ride me like Loa. if they need their story told they make sure I do it.

Concepts like the "girl whose grandfather dies and so she has to take up living as him (via Youtube FX videos) just to keep getting his social security checks" just never materialize. She has never shown up and ridden me so her story is untold.

Cat girl anime. Neko (as in wafers?) vs Cat Girl Nuku Nuku..
Grad loser trending Hikikomori
Cat Girl slave.
She noticed him but he didn't notice her.
Animal transformation.
Introvert gets friends and bangs that hot chick...

OK, bad news. This has been done so many times that by 1990 there was a hentai parody called Dragon Pink.
Weird Science with a cat girl? Chobits with cat ears?.. wait, that had cat ears already.

"A curse that only activates when they lose hope in life."
Ling ling I found a penny, wait no i didn't..

4-6 years into an anime/manga parody... I'm real bad at dedicating time.

Vodka. After a liter or few I create magic. Sober, my stuff is dry and dull.

I used to party next door the Vice Lord's head quarters. Best place in town. They kept crime close to 0.

Sometimes Street Fraternities get a bad rap. When one of my friends had his car stolen from in front of the house we just talked to the leader and that member was never seen again (I think he joined the peace core or something).
