More like taxation and legal issues that were (and are) impossible to maneuver through. To set up a print-on-demand service it seems I needed to fill out some american taxation forms, so I'm not going to bother touching that until someone is sure they can have something set up. Not even sure how Hasith and Cory got the other anthologies worked out.

It would be great to have a print version, but that's just not practical at the moment and not worth the headache. It seriously frustrates to no end. Even Amazon wasn't as easy as advertised.


Wohoo Nair joined the fray, and K-Seki I hope?

Yeah pretty much Nair. No schedule does mean in an ideal world we have a super productive time and have 2 anthologies ready for release, but that's how great and prepared the Writers Anthology took and even that was just rushed out in the end because it was in limbo for too long. Deadline has sorta gotta exist, but I'm starting to think we should have other print projects other than just the anthology alone. More doujin for the site in general. But that's for another topic.

You're more than welcome to! With a new year coming, this is the perfect time to push for a new Anthology as well.

thank you!

Im not sure when the list will update,
but is there a way for the members who are participating to gather??
It will make submission easier.

if we dont have enough member participate,
I think its better to recommend a short 1 epsidoe (10-20 pgs) to fill the gap.
although I think its more preferable as 5-6 pages.

Since this is gonna be online E-book
 either 8x11 or B4 would be fine anything under 2000px tbh.

Gather? You'll have to clarify your exact meaning there.

think gathering means using a group on skype or discord for easy communication

There is not, but if participants want to put together sucg a group, that wouldn't be a problem.

signing up :D I'm often too busy to read into the forums but if there's something like a FB group, I can check it out more often. How're we gonna do this?

Definitely happy to have more people on board!

Well, we're going to collect the comics first and foremost, and I should've alraedy planned mine by now. Ideally we'll be able to release this on the first of june. That means everything has been spellchecked, all manga have been submitted and all that.

If there are skype groups, facebook groups to be made make them, so long as the anthology takes place.

A short update: I need synopses from the stories you guys are planning to have made into comics. This is more to see if anyone is still participating in the anthology or not than a rush to have the work done. Still, any news of progress beyond 0 pages will be muchly appreciated. Anything less is sacrilegdge!

Just joking. I haven't gotten anything done as well, but I just want to remind people that this is a project that can absolutely happen, so long as we work on it.

Does anyone else have a Discord? If not then we can use Skype to set up an IM group for the anthology to share sorrows and joys of the journey.



I already have two stories that I've worked on in case I have absolutely nothing to show. Either Penance or Narcz, but otherwise I'm planning on working on some sci-fi sword action. It's going to be a short action scene more than a storyline, and will optimistically be 15 pages if I can swing it.

Helluh there, well I thought about contributing the first 20 pages (one action scene) of Manako's chapter 2. Would that be alright? If so, I'm done :D

There  is also a set of about 10 pages I had to scrap T_T I realized in the middle of the scene that I had put a character in too early and have to re-make the second half of chapter two from scratch. So, if there is a lot of space to fill, I could contribute up to 30 pages in grayscale.

How is the cover etc going? Need any help? I think I might just have hit my goal in art style for figurative drawing / painting, so I could probarbly whip up something.

Here's my newest work, just to show you what I can do:



About the printed version btw: When I researched printing prices for Manako, I found a printing service where I could print smallish books for about 2-3 Euro per book if more than 200 pieces. It would be up to us if we can get enough people for that, it's not that expensive. It would then have no ISBN number (getting one costs about 80-100 Euro I think), and I haven't looked into requirements for selling them, but I think it's absolutely possible to start a kickstarter with like 600 Euro to print and ship them. Would be interesting how it turns out if we all used our social network for advertisement.

And I have discord btw. Never using it because I know noone who does LOL Add me to the group, I'm Gabryel#3304
