Maison Ikkoku could be a live-action show as far as plot goes. It's about a poor student living in the ghetto of Tokyo when his building gets a new landlord and he falls in love with her. He keeps trying to ask her our except his INSANE neighbours keep screwing up his chances. And THEN the rivals show up. It's modern romance meets screwball comedy.

It's by Rumiko Takahashi, the genius behind Ranma 1/2 and Inu Yasha (which was how I discovered it). It was turned into a show in like 1985 or somthing. I own the complete manga.

Not really my kind of show, doesn't sound too bad, though.

I'm aware it's not everyone's bag. *LOL*
There aren't any ninjas or vampires in Maison... actually... I'm not sure about Mr. Yotsuya he's SOMETHING wierd. *snort*

Anyways... I DO like romance, being lucky enough to have someone fantastic in my life, so I like to alude to some of that happiness every now and then (with Linus and his wife, and Shelly and Weston). But I don't think I could write a romance graphic novel.

I'd be too tempted to stick a wise-cracking robot or a pirate in it.

Yeah, I hate to say it, but I'm a bit of a sucker for the romantic stuff too. I'll read Naruto and the other guy stuff no prob, but one of my favorites is Nana, which is nothing but a cheesy soap opera- unexpected pregnancies, broken hearts, estranged mothers... it's pretty bad, but like a train wreck, I can't look away.

@Bro Really? Wow. 26 years and it's still like I don't even know you sometimes. *L* Live and learn I guess. S'why I like writing with you.

@ Chronos If you do take it upon yourself to write a romance with pirates and robots, don't be embarrassed and have fun with it! I find that the first test in writing is yourself. Write something that YOU'd want to read.

I was just kidding, so far my story is about a kid joining a band of space mercenaries to get away from an evil government...Sounds cliché when I put it like that, but generally speaking that's what it's about.

*shrug* Sounds like a good start to me.

If you feel a cliche coming on, they best thing you can do is to flip it and change it around. Maybe the evil government isn't 100% evil, but is actually justified in their overbearing attitude. Maybe it USED to be more evil, so our villains have to face semi-evil. Maybe it's OPENLY evil- if it's a comedy, the villanous minister might be the head of the "Evil Party", or might be bogged down by read tape ("Where's my death ray?" "Well, sir, the supplies department said you misfiled your T227 Death Ray Request form, sir.")

Also, have at least ONE "face" amongst the government- not just the puppet master, but at least one "grunt" or hunter whom they meet in the field. Maybe he's a pure heartless jerk... or maybe he's actually a semi-decent guy, who cares about widows and orphan. Of course, THAT kind of flip is also a cliche, so you invert it once more and have him actually save widows for his own twisted reasons. "We thought you were the bastich with a heart of gold... when really, you're a bastish with the heart of an even greater bastich."

Or better still, TWO hunters/grunts. Allows you to have dialogue, and avoid the abnoxious internal monologueing.

Well, the experimented on the kid to make him a human "weapon" by implanting a chip in his brain that gives him the ability to control machines with his mind~ Ooo~

Soyeah, they're most likely evil. Well...At least the military part is.

Fair point... but maybe that was a radical member of their party... maybe they want to find him partially because of the cool powers, but also to sweep him under the rug... they'd rather have everything Dr. Psycho-Pants did be hidden away, lest it shame the military, or cause a scandal.

And remember, very few experiments are "stand alone"- there might be prototypes that didn't function as well because the chip wasn't as well made, or because they chose a poor test subjects (maybe there's a white rat out there that constantly flicks the lights in his lab). They might ALREADY be able to build a better one, in which case, they're perfectly fine just destroying the kid, lest the technology leak outside. (Maybe that's how you raise the stakes... at first they want him alive, but after the chip is duplicated, they're happy to kill him.)

@Sis - shouldn't be TOO shocked, I'm a softy at heart. Look at my novel "Also Rans" - it's a teen romance comedy cleverly disguised as a superhero adventure.

@mama-sama


Hi again Razz

I was bored so i made fanart for Crit.

http://uniluvvv.webs.com/Fangirl.png

I feel kinda bad that I changed the look sooo much. They don't really look like bart or Kiyana anymore. Sad((

I was too lazy to make a background.

@FANGIRL

Impressive art!

@PaperTiger

The idea for the villian is a corrupt...Um...What would you call it...Head of science for the government. The place where the first part of the story takes place, a medical station in orbit around a planet I call Jidoor. Mr...Sorry, Dr. Psycho-pants took control of the station and turned it into a military research center without the knowledge of the other government officials. He's planning to create his own army of cyborg soldiers so he can take control of the government. What do you think of that?

Hey, they're probably busy with writing and stuff, I mean have you read Donuts for Looking? It's hard being a webcomic maker. I salute you Mama-sama and PaperTiger, I salute you.

@Fan-girl: Wow, that's fantastic! Don't worry about changing the style, it looks fresh and new. Is it alright if we add it to the fan art section?

@Chronos: Sounds like it could work... of course, if he's trying to take OVER the gov't, you have a classic "enemy of my enemy" situation... the government hates the mercs and wants to catch the kid, but they also don't want to be overrun by rogue members of their own party...

Of course, with Cyborgs, you have to remember: where are the human parts coming from? Are they willing volunteers, prisoners, military cadets, hospital patients? Or are they the dead brought back to life, and the doc is traffic body parts?

Actually, I think it will be more like the government is intolerant of mercs, but they're not openly violent towards them. But the bad guy convinces them that the kid stole a valuable prototype of what he is working on. (Which is technically true.) He is actually tricking them into chasing down the very thing he still needs so he can destroy them.

Of course, with Cyborgs, you have to remember: where are the human parts coming from? Are they willing volunteers, prisoners, military cadets, hospital patients? Or are they the dead brought back to life, and the doc is traffic body parts?
It's kidnapped people that were coming to get medical treatments, more than likely. Remember, this is a medical research station, so there must be some patients...Right?

Oh, I forgot to mention the purpose of that chippy thingy. The chip not only makes it's user able to hack computers and take control of robots with his mind, it also acts as the controller for the robotic parts of the user's body. (But fortunately the kid escapes before the horribly painful surgury)
