  1. Fairy Tail Created by: Mashima Hiro Published: 06/23/06 Style: Fantasy/Fighting/Magic/Adventure/Humor Main Characters - Lucy: A stellar spirit mage she uses keys to summon spirits of various abilities. Lucy is an aspiring author. Natsu: A flame mage who's goal is to find his foster parent and teacher Igneel. Gets motion sickness easily and doesn't know the meaning of take it easy. Happy: A cat who is Natsu's partner. Happy has the ability to use magic and speak. He also has the same temperamant as Natsu helping add to the trouble caused. Makarov: The guild leader of Fairy Tail a titan mage. Can use most magics and is a bit of a lecher. Gray Fullbuster: An ice mage who likes to butt heads with Natsu his elemental opposite. Has the odd habit of disrobing randomly. Erza Scarlet: Her magic consists of armor and weapons. She is the disciplinarian of the group and one of the strongest members of the guild. The storyline so far takes place in the land of Fiore and is up to chapter 53/54. I just started reading this recently as I came across references of it being a One Piece rip off and such. Seeing how Natsu was drawn I thought people may have been right but then I read through the first volume and realized the two series were alike but in a good way not a bad. The similarity in appearance and attitude between Luffy and Natsu's faces is pretty much where the comparisons end. Sure they are both in the same category Pirates(Nakama)/Devils Fruit users vs Guild Members(Nakama)/Magic users it may seem to be alike but this is a whole new adventure with a different flavor. I've read to chapter 51 so far and come away with a good feeling the series is moving along steadily and the supporting cast of characters seem to be coming along great with a good plot outlined. I feel if given a chance this series will grow on a lot of OP fans. Mashima Hiro all ready has one long lived manga under his belt in Groove Adventure Rave/Rave Master and I think has the means to create a stronger story and world this time around. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Currently at chapter 69 the last arc has been wrapped up. I can't wait to see where the next arc will take us.

  5.    Hey guys, I'm the Unusual Otaku. I hope I'm posting this to the right forum, the videos are something I "Create" after all...       Anyway, The channel is a gaming channel I've been working on for the past couple of months. I went from 5 to 19 subscribers over the past week and have been looking for places to help spread the word of my channel. However, I don't like Facebook or twitter and Tumblr confuses me so I was at a lose until I stumbled across this site. Fellow Otakus are my kind of people so I feel more comfortable posting on here asking for help. Here is a list of what my channel CURRENTLY entails(it will change as I find/think of more stuff to do on it):   The Stomping Land-        This is a Multiplayer series I'm doing with a few of my otaku friends. The game involves survival crafting elements with dinosaurs. Though based on how the series has been going I'd say that other players pose more of a threat.   The Walking Dead-        I know a lot of people have already done a let's play of this series, but my subs voted for it. So far I've been enjoying it but I think my commentary quality isn't that good in it as I'm mostly trying to focus on the story.   Otaku Says-        This one hasn't been made yet. Its a review show I'm planning on making where I will review different Anime, Manga, Movies, and other things should people request it. The reviews will be in-depth looks at the content so there will be spoilers and stuff.   That's about it for right now. As I said its a brand new channel so there is still a lot of growing to do. I still need to have a custom banner and profile pic made (right now I'm just using pics I googled a while back)            The channel's name is also Unusual Otaku if you wanna check it out. here is the Url: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLA22YSfmxMs-NUnx1hvjGQ

  7. Haha I love Lucky Star...but doesn't everyone? ^^ So discuss it here :)
  8. [color=darkblue][size=1]One of the main purposes of Manga Alley is to get help with working on your artwork. With that being said, I have decided to create this topic. Any people wishing to ask for help from others will post a "help wanted" post here. Any topics created from now on regarding this subject will either be merged with this topic, or deleted entirely. Thanks much, Kei[/color][/size]
  9. Hey All, I have to say, I thought that the end of Naruto volume 6, when Sakura finally fought, was the most awesome fight in Naruto so far. I've been waiting for Sakura to fight since the very beginning of the manga, and she hasn't. She said everything I'd been waiting for her to say, "I've always sat on the sidelines, they've always had to protect me," etc. All the staff I was saying outloud while reading the manga and watching her whimper like a coward. When she pulled out those kunai, I mean..wow, I thought it was unbelievably awesome. I wanted to know what other peoples reaction to her fighting were. Personally, I'm dying to read Naruto volume 7. Post your opinions, I'm looking forward to reading them. ~Ryo the Tactician.
  10. Does anyone know about Bleach? I just found out about it and i absolutely love it! :p
  11. [indent=1][font=comic sans ms,cursive][b]Astar Pendragon is a young boy born of a unique people known as the DRAGON KIN . Unlike them however, he was not blessed with the gift to breathe fire and without this he can never hope to beome a true DRAGON. So he leaves his tribe one day and into a world that he has never experienced in an attempt to discover his inner flame and cease to remain FLAMELESS![/b] This is a description of my original manga FLAMELESS! I thought that it would be a good idea to create a forum post about it in order to get feedback :) You can read it here on theO[url="http://www.theotaku.com/fancomics/view/10087/flameless%2521_volume_1"]http://www.theotaku.com/fancomics/view/10087/flameless%2521_volume_1[/url] as well as mangamagazine for better navigation and quality [url="http://www.mangamagazine.net/manga-and-comics/FLAMELESS/detail-page/584"]http://www.mangamagazine.net/manga-and-comics/FLAMELESS/detail-page/584[/url] I hope you all will like what I have so far :) Oh and feedback would be very helpful. :)[/font][/indent]
  12. I'm importing this idea from another forum I frequent. The idea is to take a picture from the manga of a character that has yet to appear in colour, and paint up a prediction of what colour scheme you think that character will end up having. You can do this in programs such as Photoshop, the Gimp or even MS Paint. This thread is for the manga One Piece but it can work with any of the major weekly manga that get adapted into a TV series or get colour spreads from time to time. It can be fun to see how close or how far away you are with predicting a character's colour scheme. Here are a few of the predictions I have made so far: [img]http://img804.imageshack.us/img804/3565/threeeue.jpg[/img] As yet unnamed three-eye girl from Big Mom's crew [img]http://img607.imageshack.us/img607/899/pekoms.jpg[/img] Pekoms from Big Mom's crew [img]http://img214.imageshack.us/img214/1418/punkhazard.jpg[/img] Punk Hazard island colour scheme prediction [img]http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/4450/dragonprediction.jpg[/img] "Punk Hazard Dragon" and Straw Hat clothing
  13. Hey guys Please let me know if you like my first manga. I made in 2004 and am looking for your opinion as I will be starting another one. It is on the folder "The Two of Us" http://arnaldomachado.deviantart.com/gallery/33935562 Arnaldo.
  14. It seems that I have two manga's that I am creating. Percantia-descent into darkness was orignially an anime that I had created with unique storylines. Here is a piece from Percantia- Father Shugo- It seems that the evil is terrorizing Percantia....We can't allow that to happen. If Percantia falls this life we know will be destroyed. Ryuko- Father...It seems that we are in dire need of help...Have you found the vessels? The ones sent to save earth, percantia and mankind Father please say you have found them.... Father Shugo- Yes I have. These two will create the offspring known as Yin. Half good half bad a neturel force. Maybe then the darkness will forever dissappear. Ryuko- Who are they Father? Father Shugo- Your brother Kanjii and the Clentai Rena. God help us, even though that is just a saying. If anyone can draw and can create good character profiles please pm me or just inform me somehow.... And for the android lovers my other manga in the works.. AeMaW- After Earth Mars Android War This is about robots and a virus called the ZI (Zero Immortal) Won't go into detail ....don't have time But here is a Piece Kira- Do you think that androids can coexist with us? Shigure- No....We want supremcy they want peace...how can we coexist with that? Kira- But Reika he seems different he almost seems human.... Shigure- He seems human becasue he has not had a chance to fight us yet...We created them....We made this war...Earth is no longer habitable because of us not them, Yet we blame them for our problems. Kira- Have you forgave time yet? Shigure- No...I'll Never forgive time...Not until I die when There is no time left. Get some sleep Kira tomnorrow we hack into the Mars war unit we have to stop this war this Virus before it kills us all. Kira- I....Lo.. Shigure- Stop! your idle feelings will only interfere. But if it will help I'll hold you tonight...Maybe then your tears and sympathy for the sick race called humans will cease to exist.
  15. So I'm guessing some of you have read the rumours today that Toriyama is restarting the DragonBall story. That's all the information there is at the moment, so who knows what the situation is? What are your thoughts on this? If Toriyama penned a new chapter to the DB saga, would you be excited? What angle might it take? Might it be more adventure oriented like the original DragonBall, or more fighting styled, like DBZ? Will it follow GT, or what? Will it focus on Goku, or maybe Goku's family? Or completely new characters? If he did write a new story, it would surely be picked up for an anime adaptation. Personally I (and perhaps a good deal of other fans) are only familiar with the anime, not the manga. Anyway, I'm not sure how I feel about this news. I wasn't fond of anything that came after the end of the Cell saga. I found the whole thing stale and worn out. I disliked everything about Buu, SSJ3, Fusion, Goten and Trunks, Videl; everything. And GT was of course a farce. However, I know if this does come to pass, loyalty will have me tuning in. Probably out of some sort of morbid curiosity. Thoughts and opinions?
  16. [font=franklin gothic medium][color=darkred][center][img]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/9/96/Psyren_Volume_1.jpg[/img][/center] [i]One day while heading home, Ageha Yoshina finds a public pay phone ringing by itself. He picks it up, receiving no answer except a calling card with the word "Psyren" printed on it. After Sakurako Amamiya, a girl in Yoshina's class, disappears after mentioning "Psyren", Ageha uses the calling card in hopes of finding her. After answering a long and detailed quiz on a pay phone, he is asked if he wants to go to Psyren. The next day, he answers a ringing phone and is immediately drawn into the world of Psyren. A world which is inhabited by monsters called Tavoo. A world where players must fight to survive using the psychic powers known as PSI. [spoiler]During their many trips between his world and Psyren, Ageha and his friends learn that Psyren is actually the world a decade into the future. They learn the cause of the world's destruction is a group known as W.I.S.E and a meteor known as Uroboros.[/i][/spoiler] ~Wikipedia~ [b]Edit: That last little bit is pretty spoiler-ish. (I just found out about some things that I didn't know/see lol)[/b] Alrighty, it's about time we got a new series discussion going on here. Can't have Bleach, One Piece and Naruto being the only things that's talked about all the time. I'll admit right off the bat it's not as, umm.., what's the word.. hooking (if you will) as the big 3, but I do find it a lot more intriguing than the 3 that's for sure. (Perhaps it's because I'm reading something new) Like the big 3, and almost every other shonen out there, it starts off fairly slow, but at the same time the slow moments are really interesting because of everyone trying to figure out their powers in the situations they've been thrown in. I'd say everything really begins to jump off around chapter 45-46. If I had to compare this to something, I'd say it's a mixture between Bleach, Yu Yu Hakusho and Persona 3 and/or 4. (Yea, that's quite the combination there) It has Bleach's dramatic moments with Yu Yu Hakusho's character interaction. Just about every character gel together almost like the characters in Yu Yu Hakusho. The thing I like about the characterization in this series, from what I've read, is that there hasn't been an annoying character yet, and at the same time there is no damsels. And even better, almost every fight is similar to one of Kurama's fights... (A friggin thought process. I love that) It has Persona's whole [spoiler]traveling from one dimension to another dimension feel, although, in this it's traveling from present to future.[/spoiler] I would take the time to describe each character but that would take too long, and it'd be giving a lot away, but think of them like this. There is a Kurama, a Yusuke/Ichigo, a smarter Kuwabara, a better Rukia, a Byakuya/Ulquiorra, a Grimmjow... You get the idea right? And at this very moment I just finished reading chapter 66. I just found my hooking point. This is shaping up to be a favorite. Anyway, give it a read some time. I'd really like to see others opinion about the sleeping heap of potential here.[/color][/font]
  17. so i've been reading alice in the country of hearts for a while and i put up some fan art on the otaku main page and i noticed something.... IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE IT'S OWN CATEGORY! so i got thinking, how many people actually read alice in the country of hearts/alice no heart no kuni? i've seen some fanart on theO but i'm sure more people read it. if you read it then who's your favourite character(s)? mine are boris and elliot
  18. Through the Manga Alley, there is not one thread about any manga collection so I decided to start on my own. I am sorry if there is one like this out there and I didn't even see it. So what manga have you bought for your own collection and explain why you bought it, someone bought it for you, or was given to by someone. (WARNING: please don't list what you have in your collection without any explanation. This will make it harder for people who only just list down without any explanation. Thank you and enjoy this thread.) Here is my collections of manga that I bought, was bought for me, or was given to me: 1. [B]Mobile Suit Gundam Wing Vol. 1[/B] - When I was little I was kind of cheap, so I went to the Thrift store and I saw this manga on the book case. I was looking at it and read a couple of the first page and ask my mom to buy it for me. I thought someone threw away a pretty good manga. 2.[B]Rave Master Vol.1[/B] - When I was in middle school I had this book catalog and as I was going through it, I saw the manga of it and I really wanted it for my puni little manga collection I had. So I ask my mom to get it for me and she was ok with it, I think. 3. [B]Yu-Gi-Oh Vol.1[/B] - The same reason as #2. 4.[B]Jinki Extend! Vol. 1-3[/B] - During my time in high school, I was into anime and manga. When I was at barns and noble, I saw this series and pretty much got into it. By the time I waited until the fourth book was suppose to come out they didn't have it, so I was kinda pissed off and so I never got to complete this series yet. 5. [B]Fruit Basket Vol. 3 & 7[/B] - These were given to me, and they were in kind of in a bad condition. I even read them, but I like the series. 6. [B]Negima Vol. 2 & 3[/B] - They were given to me by my friends. I don't know the details, but I never figure it out why they given it to me. 7. [B]Chobits Completed series[/B] - When I was in my younger high school day, I saw the first volume of Chobits and I pretty much love this series. I bought it at barns and noble. They at least got the whole series while I was waiting for the next volume to come out. 8. [B]Ai Yori Aoshi Vol. 1-10 [/B]- During the middle of my hiigh school days, I eventually bought the series at barns and noble, where I only thought this place was where I only could get my manga there. When I saw the cover for the first Volume in a New-Type magazine, I pretty much wanna get the series. Right now I want to finish my Ai Yori Aoshi series, but times like these I am buy getting different series. 9. [B]Hana-Kimi Vol. 1 -21 [/B]- A few months ago, I was reading the first volume, and I pretty much fell in love with the series. The storyline is pretty good and I am almost done with the series. I'm hoping that I wil finish this series soon. Right now I'm on book 15 and the story is still good. 10. [B]Eiken Vol. 1-4[/B] - Same situation as the #9, but I like it, but not as much as the Hana-Kimi series. 11. [B]Pretty Face Completed series [/B]- A few weeks ago, I bought the first volume and it was pretty good. It has lots of funny stuff happening in the story. This is one of my favorite series so far, so I'm hoping to continue reading Pretty Face. I just finish book 1 and going to start on book two pretty soon.
  19. [COLOR=Navy][FONT=Comic Sans MS]Finally, I've made the One Piece thread. This is mine. All mine!!! :D Since this is the first post... [CENTER] [IMG]http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/8115/725onepiece0gg.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER] One Piece is an anime following the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, Captain of the Mugiwara Kaizoku-dan (Straw Hat Pirate Crew). His ultimate goal is the sail through the infamous Grand Line in order to obtain the legendary treasure that lies at the in. dubbed "One Piece," based on the final words of the man called the "Pirate King," Gold Roger, who left it there. Luffy sets out to gather a legendary crew and surpass Gold Roger and become the next Pirate King by finding One Piece. So yeah, that's the basics of the story. Check out the manga and anime in it's original form, as many consider One Piece as their favorite Shonen anime series. Anyway, straight to business... It seems in Chapter 441 that [spoiler] in Ace's intense battle against Blackbeard, has sacrificed himself with a large ball of fire in order to exact his revenge for his fallen comrade. All that appears to be left of him is his signature hat...[/spoiler] Though, I love Ace, being Luffy's brother and all, I can't wait till they show the next adventure of the Mugiwara. :3 But, since they're showing this bout now, I have a sneaking thought that sometime soon Blackbeard and his band shall start there plan of obtaining the bounties of all the Mugiwara Pirates ([spoiler]Yes, I'm sure Blackbeard and co. survived Ace's final gamble. Not so sure about Ace's fate though...[/spoiler]). Well, those are my thoughts. Let's hear yours.
  20. What is the very first manga you ever read? Mine was Ragnarok. After reading that manga I just couldnt stop going into bookstores and looking at which manga looks interesting. Ever since then I started reading D.N. Angel, Escaflowne and Negima and I started buying anime magazines. Hah, I sound like an obsessed nerd. But im not. So just post you answer. :animesmil
  21. I would like to know how to start my own manga, I have the story set out...sorta, I have some characters drawn out and done and some of them I need to draw. I have a title set out for it 'Space Angel 2045' Here are the names of the Characters: Christine Okada - Main Character, she has amnesia and is very easily to anger. She's mostly trying to remember who she is, and who turned her life upside down her code name is Space Angel. Nao Sano - Main Character, she's Okada's main rival she always challenging her to a fight, she's lost a few times but won a lot, but they mostly have a lot of ties. She's also known to have a big mouth at times. She has a younger brother who's close to Okada's age. Gina Ando - Supporting Character, she's mostly a Repair Engineer and she's also Nao's partner. She always tries to keep Sano and Okada from getting into fights but they both end up telling her to stay out of it. Takeshi Nogi - Main Character, he's a bit of both supporting and main character, you can also say he's the main villian of Space Angel 2045 he's the one who took Okada's happiness, memories and everything away from her. Aparrenly she 'insulted' him when she was only a mere child and to this day, well he can't forget it. Kiyoshi Sano - Supporting Character, he is Nao's younger brother Okada or actually Kiyoshi falls for Okada and asked her to be his girlfriend but apparently, one thing he forgot was to kiss her and hold her hand. Amaya Okada- she is the mother of Christine Okada Yori Okada - he is the father of Christine Okada Choko Temko - Supporting Character, she's the one who trained Okada when she tried to enter the Pirates. She taught Okada everything she had to know and learned how to control her temper. Armand Uno - Supporting Character, he's the legendary Space Pirate Leader who was imprisoned by some Bounty Hunters eventually he was freed but later he 'disappeared'. There might be more characters later so it goes...but other than that I do would like to know how to start my own manga...I have a list of items that I need but what about doing it by computer...? Position is CLOSED: If I'm not going to get any messages, IM's, or even E-MAILS then the position for writer is OFFICIAL closed and will remain closed. I'll do it myself or I won't do a manga period. Unless someone e-mails me saying they want the position then I'll reconsider.
  22. ya kow...when i first saw the beginning of this series...i really didn't like what i saw in the shojo beat magazine....but i have absolutely fallen in love with this site:catgirl:...but none of the forums have any pictures of it any where.... am i the only one who likes this series?
  23. [content removed since threads that are only for advertising aren't allowed]
  24. Like Kishi or Tite for instance.... Do they do everything by themselves? It would seem as if they have help with drawing the environments, editing and etc.
  25. [font="Times New Roman"][size="3"][color="#9932cc"][center][img]http://otakuanblog.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/largeanimepaperscans_claymore_kayurachan067__thisres__143362.jpg[/img][/center] Okay so there's not been that much death in the Claymore manga these days. But I was curious who here actually reads it and kept up. I suppose we could also make angry and bitter comparisons to the show. ...which I'll confess I still enjoyed right up until the last two or so episodes. Does anyone read it religiously once a month like I do? Wish that it was on the same sort of schedule as the Naruto Manga is? Idly consider the possibilities for how the current difficulties with one large angry purple horned monster pixie girl can be dealt with? And who do you favor over the others? I like Deneve. A: unique name. B: defensive type warriors are more my speed, as I too would want to protect my body or at least not worry about half of it going missing. C: same haircut once upon a time. Which character needs to die a horrible and drawn out death? [/color][/size][/font]
