Hello. I just found out about this site a while ago, can't believe I've never heard of it. I like manga, I've been trying to get atleast one project done back in college (none of them got 10% of the way finished, oof), and I think I might start back to drawing again. I doubt I'm gonna get anything done again though, I have a full-time job and, while I'm lucky I only get to work half the week due to pandemic restrictions, once that lifts up my free time's gonna go bye-bye.

...But anyway! Hi. I like anime and manga, drawing waifus, memes, some games I play every now and then, math, chess, card flourishes, and a little bit of writing. For music, I really only listen to anime & vocaloid shiz, and even then, I only listen so I don't get bored of drawing. I've no idea what everyone's listening to these days. Don't mind the miscellaneous stuff, just note the first two items. I like ANIME AND MANGA ---- and I DRAW. That's the only important thing, that's basically 90% of my life. Right now I'm at a crossroads, don't know if I should pursue digital painting (cute colored waifus), animation (cute moving waifus), or manga (waifus with emotional weight). They're all tedious and long af, I'm not sure exactly which poison I pick.

My TOP 10 FAVORITE ANIME of all time:

1.) Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm
2.) Yuru Camp
3.) Fairy Tail
4.) Madoka Magica
5.) Naka no Hito Genome
6.) ID: Invaded
7.) Rozen Maiden 2013
8.) SAO Alternative
9.) Grand Blue
10.) Gokukoku no Brynhildr

My TOP 6 FAVORITE MANGA of all time:

1.) "ib - Instant Bullet" by Akasaka Aka (my favorite writer)
2.) Smile Down the Runway
3.) Kakegurui
4.) Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Minagoroshi-hen
5.) Black Bullet by Morino Hon (my favorite artist)
6.) Belial-sama wa *censored*ennou
7.) (currently undecided...)

Some games I like: GetAmped, Death Palette, Blank Dream, Touhou Gensou Skydrift, Klonoa, DragonFable, Elements the Game

wow a very interesting list of favourites :D
and plenty of ambition!
I can say from experience that animation will be the hardest one by a massive amount.
Otherwise you can always mix it up with both illustrations and stories, thats what I'm doing at the moment ~:P
looking forward to seeing your art!

Hello! Nice to meet you!
I actually have not seen many of your favourite anime, but I am sure they are good.

I understand the difficulty in deciding what to do! I personally decided to do all three (although I prefer traditional mediums to digital) but focusing on manga, and illustrations whilst I work on the story. Animation I only do occasionally, but I always love doing it. Even though it is the most time consuming, seeing the characters come to life and move around is just so rewarding!

I guess you just have to decide what you love most, and how much time you have.

And I would love to see some of your art!
Critiques are welcome!

Welcome to MangaRaiders!

I never saw the 2013 run of Rozen Maiden, but I was a big fan of the previous animes. Good taste!

Coming from a background of being a college student, then getting a full time job and working a lot less on my projects, I totally understand how you stand, lol. Small projects are your friends now. Hopefully someone else around here can give you advice for working small and fast. On the text only side, mobile Google docs is great. Not sure if there's an art equivalent though  :-\

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc:

Welcome to the forum :) I look forward to seeing some of your drawings, I'm sure you can fit one in here or there even in a busy schedule (even if I have no leg to stand on :sure: )
