Guess that Manga
« on: May 30, 2006, 11:58:49 PM »
This is basically a quiz game where you take a page from a manga, and people try to guess which manga its from.

Some Guidelines
1.  The first person to guess the manga correctly gets to pick the next one.

2.  The winner has 24 hours to put up an image from the time his guess is confirmed.  If for any reason he can't make the time or doesn't choose to, then his turn is up for grabs for the first person to post an image.

3.  If no one can guess the image with two days (48 hours) anybody is aloud to post another image to guess.  (These two rules are to keep the game from stalling for prolonged periods of time)

4.  Clues are allowed to be given at the discretion of the person who posted the image.

5.  Don't make the image too obscure.  Make sure that if someone has read the manga they should be able to guess the correct answer.  Also, don't use manga that's too obscure that no one would know about it.

Ok, I'll go first.

Looks a lot like Suzumiya Haruhi to me.

Damnit, I was getting to it.

Berserk.

In all honesty, I don't read a lot of manga, and most of the manga I do read probably wouldn't be allowed on these forums.

Awwww.... that's too easy, Sorrow-kun.  The title's right there!  

It's Boku no Futatsu no Tsubasa, right?

That's not fair, I would have gotten the answer first, but I can't read Kanji well...  (I had all the way up to "Boku no Futatsu no" translated.  I'm not saying that's how dheu got it, but I'm pretty sure I remember her talking about knowing Japanese).

For future reference, delete anything that will give away the name of the manga.  Even if it's in Japanese.

Yay! Japanese ftw!
 
Although that wasn't fair. Heh hehe.... I probably won't get any others, now!
 
Alright, let's see who can get this one!
 
Manga #4!

Good job, Rove.  It's one of those manga that kind of fly under the radar, in my experience, so nice job guessing it so quickly.

Ok, my turn then...
 

 
Clues: It is licensed by Tokyopop in the US, it's four volumes long (and finished), it was written and drawn by a fairly new mangaka, and it is awesome even though the art seems a bit odd at first. And it has a Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Enough clues?
----
EDIT: Apparently not enough clues -_-
 
Since I don't like to pwn you all, here is a give-away: The author is called Shohei Manabe. Now go use mighty Google.

Oh! Shohei Manabe?  Dead End, right?
 
I KNEW I saw that art somewhere before.
 
EDIT:
 
I'm going to assume I'm right and post up the next picture.  This one should be very easy.  The artwork is pretty distinctive, and it's one of the best series I've read so far.
 
Manga #6 or so.

Blade of the Immortal?

I'll post one after I get off work, if I'm right that is.
