How do I make my shitty webcomic get published, gain huge popularity, and have it animated like what happened to pic related?
yo jealous bro? heard you talkin shit
Salty dbz fan detected, shit ton of people could kill Goku. Get over it
It's a comedy, you half-wit. It's meant to be absurd and ridiculous. You're criticizing it for doing literally exactly what it sets out to do and which it succeeds in doing, given all the fans it has.
>It's okay because it was just pretending to be retarded
>getting a decent animation adaptation
I wish america was at least 10% as caring about animation as japan and france. Maybe then /co/ would actually have more cartoons to talk about.
>He wishes to not be the strongest anymore
>His strength no-sells Mephisto and he's still the strongest
a fan of his was some one who worked for shonen jump. he had connections. probably the only reason it happened.
the shitty web comic got redrawn so people could see what it would look like if it was professional and it got picked up as a tv show
its got another season being made
It's even referenced in other anime.
None. You'll do better by having a major social media presence and pandering to a very fickle crowd there, while living in abject terror that you'll one day say or do something someone will take the wrong way, causing them all to turn on you. Do not envy handstab, pity him and the hell he has made for himself.
Do whatever this fanfic author did.
Yeah, no animations since it's a comic where nothing ever happens, not even drama, but he's probably one of, if not the best paid webcomic artists. He also seems to be very close to having a nervous breakdown
againat any given moment.
Is this the joke post about a guy who likes a girl and then gets her phone number but turns out it's a AU version of her phone where she like him but he doesn't and then the two work together to help each other score but then fall in love or something?
Living in Japan right now. The extent to which Japanese people give a single shit about foreigners is greatly exaggerated. No one cares, you likely won't be hated or harshly judged for anything. And I'm black, so you'll likely have it easier than the already non existent hardships I face
Don't know what you're talking about, senpai.
you mean "train" anon
The tenth episode was intense!
sorry, but Usako and his crew get their nerd meats
inside the MK girls, the SF Girls, 2k12 April, 2k12 Karai, The KoF gals, Tekken chicks, DOA Babes, Sailor Pluto, Korra, etc
step1. learn the fundementals of japanese language
step2. either amass of money now before moving there, or make just enough to move there and get a stable job there
step3. once you have stably adjusted to living there, you can possibly make your webcomic, wait for it to flourish, then rake in whatever you get out of it
>Think I'm a liberalfag and all that jazz
>Christina starts turning me down the correct path
Do something you want to do, and actually care about it.
Have a plan of what you want to do, while not being too afraid to deviate from that plan to do other things that you still want to do. Make it a labor of love rather than just a labor. Being successful is an afterthought, first and foremost you want to make something you can enjoy, or at the most something you'd like other people to enjoy.
If you take the time and effort to make something good out of something you care about, then others may come to appreciate it as well.
Don't just jump into something assuming it'll be popular. Even ONE had other works before One Punch Man, and even now he doesn't just drop everything else he wants to do just because OPM is more popular. Experiment until you get something that you think really works and stick with it. If you think what you're doing is shit, then just try to get better as you move on, whether in art or in writing.
It also helps if you don't do something just because other people are doing it. Try to have your own thing and make it work. It's when you have your own thing that people look at it as something that's unique or impressive.
1. Be a brilliant writer, and a sub-par artist without being eye-rape bad. (Stick to b&w)
2. Come up with an interesting and unique concept that scratches some cultural itch people were not aware of.
3. Post your web comic to a social network full of other creative types, including anonymous professionals.
4. Do a bunch, gain a following.
5. Stop updating... Have a sufficiently relatable reason.
6. *then a miracle occurs*
7. Get published by the indie arm of a major publisher.
Almost impossible to happen in America. Just write a good novel with 1 panel illustrations each chapter that dont try to look like anime and it is at least not REALLY BAD. Also, the more detail in the background and character the better despite the shitty art. The little things are greatly appreciated.
Keep doing it until you reach a following and eventually fans will do the illustration for you for free.
Then go on hiatus for a bit to get the people to crave and they spread it to more people who they find to be a possible reader.
Make sure that you pander to a pre-existing and large community.
Good writing is more important than good art. If you want to be good at writing, study stories, all kinds of stories, study what you like and what you don't like, analyze what worked, what didn't, and WHY, and try to think outside the box. People connect most with good characters, who have depth and are believable.
Also, put yourself out there on the web. Maintain a presence on social media, post sketches or whatever you want on twitter, tumblr, whatever, don't just stay stuck in your little corner of the web. Don't force your presence elsewhere though, only do it because you want to.
So, write well and people will read your story. Write REALLY well and connect with a lot of people, and network, and you could potentially have a OPM situation on your hands. Don't get stuck thinking too hard about it, just go out and DO it. You'll improve as you go.
You create your own luck by actually creating something and putting yourself out there.
Someone who is passionate and enthusiastic about their comic and networks and creates a lot is going to have significantly higher chances than someone who has no hope or goal in their mind for their comic, and who doesn't have a drive to continually improve and push forward. Keep your goal big but move in small steps.
Monster Musume started as short porn stories with monstergirls, turned into a fanservice comic that slowly introduces more and more lore to the point that currently there are chapters with 0 fanservice. Despite what people who dismiss it just for having fanservice say he is a good writer and touched issues like prejudice and culture shock graciously instead of going on the SJW route. His fanservice is the spice of his comics but the comic itself have many flavors and can do well even without the fanservice.
A boy falls in love with a girl.
Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.
But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.
Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.

Keit愛: 君の名は。: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBBrZ3d2sJE
Ive only made small storyboards of this, about 40+ pages. I guess I'll upload more of theres a demand for them
but I'd read a webcomic about her so yes
It's been a long-running copy-pasta meme every time /a/ has a "Create your own anime plot" thread. It's not to say that it couldn't be interesting, but people are all too familiar with Keit-Ai.
>Christina's silly adventures trying to convert people
>Always comes close but a comical mishap or misunderstanding always stops it
>She just laughs and looks to the sky with hands on her hips saying "Oh, Lord"
I can see why. Shit I already have the first few episodes planned out. Phone calls from each other but with subtle background differences before the big deal. Kinda like shit what was that fox show about multiple universes with weird science bull shit.
>Implying it isnt literal perfection
Someone say literal perfection?
>move to Japan (this shit probably won't fly in America because it's hard to get somebody to adopt your stuff unless you're Axe Cop)
>get a job there and be financially stable
>draw a webcomic with a good premise (even if the art isn't good, but I'm pretty sure ONE intentionally makes OPM look that way considering how MP100 looks)
>have a talented mangaka take notice of your work, redraw it, and get it published in a magazine
>hope that it gets adapted by a good studio and then profit from whatever merchandise and sales come out of it
The number one problem though is that in America no one gives a shit about comics or cartoons to the extent that Japan seems to in order for something like this to happen.
Do the exact same thing, but make it a hentai parody.
>One Pump Man
>Weird Taitama trained to become amazing in bed
>Wound up becoming so good that he'd ruin any woman he tried to bed in one thrust
>Taitama left unsatisfied while the woman is driven insane by a constant wave of orgasms
>He goes about trying to find a woman he can go head to clam with in the bedroom fully
>gets into monster girl shit, maybe even still fucking evil for justice
>the boros fight is basically the same thing only Boros is an alien dominatrix
>Tats is a psychic whore that makes men jizz just through looking at them
You could even do it in the really simple style like the original and people would probably eat it up.
You could go the Deltora Quest route.
>Write a series of short/light novels
>Get enough money to get an adaptation in the works
>Hire a Japanese studio to make it an anime
It's not that hard guys.
Hey man, if ONE could do it, so could some poor horny bastard.
>Make shitty porn comic parody with tons of love like ONE did
>catch the attention of some highly skilled doujin artist (who would be hentai Murata?)
>shit gets popular enough to be picked up by some hentai production company and they make an OVA for it
Follow your horny dreams anons.
I'd pay to see that actually.
If the art doesn't have to be good you mind if I steal that idea?
Sure man, I'm a lazy fuck. I don't think I'd ever do it myself.
And I'd me most curious about how well it'd do with art on par with ONE's old stuff. I mean, would people fap to it or just enjoy it for the novelty of it?
It's a weird concept.
>a fan of his was some one who worked for shonen jump. he had connections. probably the only reason it happened.
Murata actually wound up quitting his job at Shonen Jump since the editors didn't want him working on One Punch Man. He got Young Jump to take a chance on the redrawn version and it took off.
Write a good story, hopefully a very skilled artist becomes a fan of your shit and asks to remake your shitty comic so he or she doesn't have to think up an original idea to become popular.
