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.

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.

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.

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.

Clues: Yes, it is shoujo, but this one is as shoujo as Jyu Oh Sei or works by Moto Hagio, in other words, only the art is reminiscent of shoujo. If the art style is not good enough as a dead give away, then I can tell you that this one has being released in the US by Del Rey, infact, the first volume was released in May.
 
If in 12 hours or so no one risks a guess, I'll add more clues.

Indeed, you are correct Dheu.
 
Now this is getting a bit creepy... and because this game was meant to be for everyone and not just a couple of rabid shoujo fangirls members, why don't you pick something with comedy, boobs, blood or guns to appeal to some other members too?

Erm.  Well, I don't know what would appeal to others, so I'll just go with what I've got.  Next time it's my turn, I'll find something completely different to what I normally read.  :D

Manga

Hint:  This series has four volumes, and was released by Tokyopop.

What's this? I've stumped people?
 
More hints: This manga contains demons and angels and battles between them. Are demons evil, or are the angels?
 
Info that probably won't help as hints: It's a rather underrated manga with a funky art style. It's got lots of blood and violence, and aaaaaaaaaannnnngst up the wazoo. It also has the worst ending I've ever seen in a manga, meaning it's really, really bad.  So bad that when I finished reading it, I wanted to burn the series right then and there, despite its good points.
 
I'll leave you with those hints for now.  If no one gets it by tomorrow, I'll give you the answer and post up another pic.

Guessing from the Yuuichi reference, Kanon or HanTsuki? As far as I know, you didn't like HanTsuki, but I do know that it has manga, however I'm not sure if Kanon has a manga, though it is very likely since it was a bishoujo game with multiple anime adaptations, so they must have made a manga out of it too. So, my guess goes to Kanon.

Can we get a full page scan next time instead of a little panel? (Just  a suggestion).

Wrong.  

It's not a terrible guess if you haven't read Monster before though.  Viz licensed Monster and it also happens to license all Shounen Jump manga, however Monster is not a Shounen Jump.  It's much more down to earth and realistic than this particular manga.  But, seeing how much of a Naoki Urasawa fanboy I am, it does make sense that I'd put up one of my favorite mangas by him (I did in the MR version of this thread that I started), but better luck next time.

I really do recommend you read some Naoki Urasawa.  He's freaking awesome, and if you did you'd see how silly your answer actually is.  The artwork is completely different.  :D

Strange.

I was thinking that you would post that just before I saw it.

Zombie Powder. Volume 1 out of 4 to be specific. Right when Gamma makes his grand entrance.

Sorry if I don't wait for an approval, but what is the point...

You know what else is strange?  For some reason, I had a feeling you were going to be the one to get this one.  But just to be difficult you got the timing wrong.  That was actually from voumel 1 chapter 3 right after they meet Smith in the bus.  Pretty close still for going by memory.

Not at all, but it is from the same decade.
 
Apparently it was too hard, so clues are in order. It has a historical context, with real historical characters, however, the main character (which is not shown in the image) is ficticious. Most of the story takes place a few years before the French Revolution. It was Revolutionary Girl Utena's main inspiration. Enough clues?

Yes, this page was edited. Why? Because if I didn't edit it, it would have been really easy to guess, even if one wasn't reading the series. And if you look closely, I didn't edit everything out...>.><.<...and therefore, it's still kinda easy to guess, just not as stupidly easy before editing.
