Shounen gimmick originality
« on: December 13, 2017, 12:27:52 PM »
Are there any "gimmicks" battle shounens could use to be original? We already have ninjas (Naruto), pirates (One piece), martial arts (dragon ball and couple others), superheroes (MHA) etc. Heck, we even have at least two wizard ones (FT and Black Clover)! Are there any gimmicks left? Or do new battle shounens have to use something that has already been done? If yes, any ideas how they can make it unique from others?

Oh, there certainly are I'm sure. I don't think we've seen any African dance based shounen yet. I joke, but there's plenty of things that can be used as shounen gimmicks. In the end, it's all about the execution though.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

Yeah, I know that it is about execution. I agree. I was just thinking that there are so many shounens, so are all ideas used. I was thinking making my own, so I was thinking is there something that haven't been used so I can stand out a little.
