Thats true. Just as a first project as a group at least, maybe we should tone down the research level a bit, or do something like this:http://mangafox.me/manga/the_world_g...00/c000/1.html then a longer series thing like the example went on to be.
Either way, you suggested it so you da bossman. Now the bossman has read my opinion, he may decide.
Well it would be a fictional city in Japan somewhere, smaller though than the one in the linked manga. With that I suppose you have some liscence. I mean, just add some noodle shops and sakura trees and viola, you've got a Japanese city right? (;) )
And I'm thinking if we're going to do this we should probably start soon hmm?
(Although I'm not sure about how we'll work out the coordination part...)
Oh yeah, about the length:
If we did 16pgs x 10, it would be the length of one of those manga book things. Which is what I call a one-shot. so yeah, thus the chosen length.
(I mean we COULD do one that's 40 pgs long or something, but I figure once you're already there, why not just keep going? Anyway logistically the 16 installment version would work better for realeasin' and stuff.)
ok I got a rough 4 pages in my head, though I changed up the how of the powers a bit, (make this kid find something underground, stuff is explained. blah blah), and has to hide them from an organization called Arctic because of where he got them. sound good?
Uh sure, but I thought this was going to be more comically themed?
(Unless those four pages ARE comically themed....)
:cat_ahhh: (sorry about all these random cats, BTW, it's 1:00 and...I'm...tired)
its 3am here. so dont worry. it would start out serious to set something up, then get more and more comedy. exponentially.
erm...okay...I don't know, I guess whatever you want to go with. I'm not quite sure how you and Den want to collab on this though...
I can wait awhile. DEN if you want to collab, say so.
Oh wow, that's a lot of replies in such a short time.
I'd like to collaborate on this project, it seems interesting and promising enough. Alamanac, you seem to have quite some ideas already, that's good. And about the authenticity, I'm cool with the setting being a fictional Japanese city. Also a Japanese city is better than an US city, as I've never been in either of those, and I've seen a lot of Japanese cities in manga and on TV etc. Besides, Japan is just cool.
You can make anything comical, by the way, really. So even if something sounds serous or dark, you can add something to make it comical, I think.
So, what's are actual ideas right now? What do we have, and what do we need? I kinda' lost track of stuff, as I kinda' just skipped trough the replies and started this one, so..
Anyway, I'm excited about this! :D
Edit: If we are going to work on this, we shouldn't be talking about the progress and ideas in the Recuitment & Request pool, should we? Maybe we should make a thread on Manga Works, or find some other place/method to talk about this stuff.
Well, for now it's okay though.
You got the serious-humor part perfect. I was thinking bobobo(icant spell it all)-like offguard catching
things. I agree that Japan is cool, it was just a suggestion to make it a bit easier on everyone.
Actual ideas.... I will edit this post with them. what do we need, cooperation, may inspiration in the future. to what we have: an artist 2 writers and i can draw ok as well if needed.
Ideas(the ones tAR came up with):
-2 college age (maybe exchange) students
-1 gains super power and stuff happens.
Ideas(that I got, dont worry they dont conflict.):
-real world with an altrenate-ish history
-world divided into companies(england, america, canada, mexico, south america)
-guy stumbles across something that gives him super powers on accident
-he is not told how to use them or what he has
-also the guy who gave them to him is crazy and gave him odd ones(turning things to cheese, making cats fall out of the sky on their backs)
-there is a company that's based in the arctic and antarctic regions that want to find the guy who gave the protagonist super powers.
-we dont know why.
Now go ahead and add to the pool.
