Love Anime as much as we do? Write your own manga/anime story!
Anime is a universe all it's own. Known by many names, the style and artistic creativity in this powerful genre is nothing short of enthralling. Within this universe of animation, a bunch of other categories come to life - Naruto, Inu Yasha, Josei, Pokémon, Mecha, K-On, Hyouka, Gokusen, Evangelion, Shoujo, Cowboy Bebop - the list goes on and on.
You all have requested an anime writing competition many times before so we're ready to make it official. Here we have a competition for anime lovers of all kinds and it includes all genres and categories in anime you can imagine! We're ready to see your anime-inspired art and read your anime fanfic stories, just keep in mind that the sky's the limit with anime, and rightly so with this competition.
How to Participate
For this competition, your entry can be done in a number of ways. Just because the title says writing competition, doesn't mean you are limited to only writing a story for this competition! You can also draw and design fanart, create your own covers, or even make a trailer for your fanfic entry.
To be super clear, here are the categories in which you can formulate your entries:
1. Write a fanfic story based on the anime genre of your choice. You can write a crossover, regular fanfic, or oneshot.
2. Draw or create your own fanart based on the anime genre of your choice!
3. Design an anime-inspired cover or create a trailer for your anime story.
