Grand Prize Award 100,000 yen + invitation to the Kyoto International Anime Manga Fair

Author Nalu
Title Tio-Mia

Comments from Rin

I enjoyed judging because we had a variety of manga works that were enthusiastic and challenging this year. We could see the different values from different cultural backgrounds in each story and it made us reconsider the possibility of expressions through manga. Films and anime are usually created by many people, thus teamwork is required. On the other hand, manga is a media in which individuals can reflect their personal value, although it can be read by people around the world. Drawings can resonate with anyone regardless of their language and culture. We believe that any of you can create a manga that is read and enjoyed by readers from all over the world if you keep being passionate about creations, keep drawing and keep improving your skill.

Comments from Goto

Most of the parts are still rough, but I could see the high potential this author has based on the drawing, direction, and structure of this work. Although it has mysterious and serious views on its story, I didn’t get bored while reading because the dialogue between a girl named “Mia” and “Tio” who is the forest deity and its guardian was gratifying. It’s well balanced. This author certainly has potential for growth.

Comments from Fujita

The author could make it perfect if they expressed Mia’s emotion and Tio's sternness at a higher level. The point I want to evaluate the most is that the author made the story more satisfying by making the last scene hopefull.

Title 夏休み

Comments from Sugata

This work is well drawn and has a unique atmosphere. To think about it, it is difficult to find a place like this where you can see fireworks clearly without being bothered by other people, so we can see this as a fantasy.

Comments from VOFAN

The mood and atmosphere of those two enjoying fireworks together in a quiet place is elegant and this is exactly what the beauty of Japan is like.
