Comment from Hideyuki Yonehara

I think your art style is fascinating. It's good that you have your own style, but there are often scenes where the composition is so out of the ordinary that it's difficult to understand the situation. Try to draw with the audience in mind. If they can't read it, you can't move forward.

Comment from Shinobu Seguchi

Congratulations on winning. The message and the story structure is simple, and I was able to read without any stress. Your artwork is very artistic, and has the potential to become your biggest weapon. However, as a manga there were many scenes where the situation was difficult to understand. At the same time, I actually wished I could see more out of the ordinary designs and scenes. The last scene was satisfying, and a nice way to end the experience of reading this manga.

Comment from Renoir Kyoudai

I like how you expressed the loneliness and sensitivity of the main character. The rough art style was a good match with the dry atmosphere. (If you can find ways to improve how you present the fight scenes and the large panels, I think it will be so much better) The structure of the story is good, and I think you have the skills to express anything you want. If you improve at expressing the deeper meaning behind the scenes, people will be able to relate to the main character even more.

Easy to read and easy to understand. I had fun reading it. People might not notice right away, but I like how detailed the background is. Many might think "it's unnecessary", but it's important for setting the mood. The one thing that needs improvement is the reveal on page 6. I wished you used more pages and panels and put in more details.

Comment from Shinobu Seguchi

Congratulations on winning. Even though it's a short story, you can feel the artist's charm. The characters are very detailed, and it was easy to relate to them. I felt the artist can create characters that we want to root for. I want to read more work from this artist.

Comment from Renoir Kyoudai

The idea is very interesting. It's very short, and I can read without feeling bored. I think you made a good decision with the length. However, the biggest strength for this work is the unique idea, and I wish you had put more thoughts to that aspect. Maybe a close up of the main character with full makeup would have given more contrast when she was bare faced.

Comment from Hideyuki Yonehara

This is a unique take on zombie stories. The quotes are very original and good. The problem is the characters. They all have the same face, and I can't tell them apart in a closeup. You should work on drawing different faces.

Comment from Shinobu Seguchi

Congratulations on winning. It's amazing how you were able to draw every page with so much energy. Despite the comical atmosphere, I could sense the serious message you wanted to send out. Also the last part had a good climax, and was satisfying to read. This manga is missing out because of the artwork. Many times it was difficult to understand who is talking, or what is happening.

Comment from Renoir Kyoudai

The carefree zombies were fun to watch. The energy this manga has is difficult to achieve by practicing, so I hope the artist holds on to that. The composition and how you tell the story is still rough, and there were times when it's difficult to read. I hope you improve those areas so the energy you bring to your manga shines even more.
