very good story.. i think?
« on: January 27, 2009, 02:48:56 PM »
Wazzup people i have a story i want to make into a comic/manga... i need a team of writers and manga artist to help me... email or comment if you guys are interested... i honestly think this story has potential and i should know i'm a manga connaisseur.. lol

check the story out.. and if u like or don't people.. tell me..instead of keeping bottle up inside.. lol

the story's main protagonist is a former samurai who left his fighting ways... to have a wife and kid.. so he becomes a rice farmer... one day when he travels to a neighbouring town to sell rice.. when the shogunate arrive at his home village and slaugher/burn everyone (inlcuding wife and kid) over tax issues... the rice farmer now lost (emotionally) decides to take revenge... along the way he meets a younger man (an underground street fighter at night to earn money for himself) who is wild and out of control and needs discipline and is a gifted fighter ( his weapon of choice a katana his father gave him) but needs someone to harness his energy.. the other is a wanted man.. an archor and a very skilled one (this guy is the quiet one and rational thinker)... this manga has a samurai champloo feel but i think it can be better.... and i have a lot of twists to keep readers entertain... i don't want it to be a long manga possibly 50-100 chapters

I think unless someone on this forum lives in Japan it's gonna be hard to do a story about Japanese culture. Other than that key fact umm it sounds a bit like Kenshin mixed with most revenge stories. Not saying it doesn't have potiential but you'll need some kind of gimmick other then the story.

I wouldn't plan out so many chapters, instead i'd focus on a one shot or brief bit of chapters because artist and writers  just frankly don't have the time unless theres a signed contract and alot of money.

I think the scenario of the story is a bit over used and you will have a next to impossible time finding someone who will stick with you for 50 issues unless you're paying ALOT of of money. Because it's hard work. I think the story needs a bit more of a unique plot and I would avoid a revenge based plot with a 40 ft. pole. if it's possible.

Thats my 2 cents. Good luck finding a team, hopefully it works out.

Well if you want to make it like happened in time of samurai warriors then you ll have study their history a bit.

So this Manga is have only 2 main characters for the " Hero's " side ?

 I think it would be nice if u can add more characters with a different. These days everyone likes Manga with humor and those magical powers.

I think the basic story line is good. How it turn out will be depends on the way story gonna deploy.

as far as the story goes i'm very flexible... it doesn't have to be set in japan or in the past for that matter.. i mean, i could do set in places which seem familiar to me.. e.g. africa or england ( actually africa sound good i don't think a manga has been set in africa... and as far as magic is concerned witch doctor use magic.. lol)   and regarding fight scenes i was intending to make them really spectacular... i would love to incorperate alittle humour

Hi

i like it, if you can add all the things people said like humour, more heroes and also cool bad guys you have it. A new scenario sounds cool Africa may be complicated if you dont know much about the place but you can always research...

I hope you can make it

If you want to change the setting just keep the concept, and if you're planning for it to be short, make sure you have a surprise ending! :exclaim:

The life-giving sword is a book with a historical viewpoint of Japanese history through kendo. If that dosen't work, go to wikipedia.
